FUNGAL NAILS

These occur as a result of a long-term skin infection that has spread into previously damage nails, giving the nail a discoloured, thickened appearance.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

All treatment for fungal nail infections is undertaken only after a fungal nail test, this test takes 5 minutes and is 97% accurate. No more waiting 3-4 weeks for test result. In the time the infection can spread deeper into the nail bed.

NAIL FENESTRATION

The drilling of small holes though the nail to allow a topical application of an anti fungal liquid to pass through the holes and treat the infected nail bed.

CHEMICAL NAIL OBLATION

The removal of the whole nail using a topical cream and occlusion, this dissolves the nail. Once the nail has gone the nail bed can be treated for the fungal infection with a topical cream.

SURGICAL NAIL REMOVAL

The nail is surgically removed under a local anaesthetic and once the area has healed, the fungal infection is treated with a topical anti - fungal cream.
