Fungal Nail Infection in the Big Toe

Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. It can affect several nails.
If your condition is mild and not bothering you, you may not need Toenail fungus treatment. If your nail fungus is painful and has caused thickened nails, self-care steps and medications may help. But even if treatment is successful, nail fungus often comes back.
Nail fungus is also called onychomycosis . When fungus infects the areas between your toes and the skin of your feet, it’s called athlete’s foot.



Toenail Fungus Treatment,Valley Foot and Ankle Center

Toenail fungal infections are often handled through oral or topical medications. Our podiatrists start with conservative options first, and only suggest surgery when absolutely necessary.
Some of the non-surgical treatments include:

  • Oral antifungal drugs
  • Liquid antifungals
  • Daily cleaning
  • Medicated nail cream
  • Medicated nail polish

One easy-to-use over-the-counter medication our physicians subscribe to is Tolcylen. Tolcylen is the first comprehensive anti fungal, cosmetic, and nail renewal treatment that can prevent and cure fungal infections while revitalizing nails with jojoba oil and vitamin E.
