Beautiful Nails Again

Our Beautiful Nails Again information booklet has been developed to assist the community to understand and better manage fungal toenails. It bridges the gap of information supplied by manufacturers of pharmaceuticals and the academic research in this area, helping to demystify the condition and the variety of care management options available. Furthermore, the advice within is the combined wisdom of decades of experience within the podiatry industry.

What are fungal nails?

Fungal Nails (or in medical terminology, Onychomycosis) is a common condition that can affect both the fingernails and toenails, but is more often seen in toenails.There are a few good reasons for this. Firstly, fungus thrives in the warm, dark environment created by closed in footwear. Plus, our toenails grow much slower and are exposed to repetitive micro-trauma from gripping and rubbing on footwear.

Fungal infections come from the same germs that cause tinea of the skin. The fungi (or dermatophytes) are parasites that feed off the nail (made up of the protein keratin). The process isn’t dissimilar to the way termites can invade timber in a home. The infestation of fungi in the nail eventually weakens the nail and causes it to split and become brittle. Fungal nails can appear white, yellowish or various shades of brown and can have a slight odour.

Care Management Options:
Fungal nail can be hard to manage, so it’s important that you see a professional. There are a number of care management options available and each care management varies in price and success rates. The most successful care management option is fungal nail laser care management (learn more here).
