Treating Fungal Nail Infections

Updated: Jul 3




Fungal nail infections, characterized by thickened, discolored nails, can be unsightly and uncomfortable. Proper treatment is essential to eliminate the fungus and restore nail health.

Signs of a fungal nail infection include:

  • Thickened, brittle nails

  • Discoloration (yellow, white, or brown)

  • Nail separation from the nail bed

Effective treatment strategies for fungal nail infections include:

  • Oral Antifungal Medications: In severe or persistent cases, oral antifungal medications may be prescribed by a healthcare professional to address the infection from within.

  • Nail Trimming and Debridement: Regular trimming and filing of the affected nails, as well as removal of any debris or buildup, help reduce nail thickness and improve appearance.

  • Preventive Measures: Practicing good foot hygiene, wearing breathable socks and shoes, and avoiding sharing footwear can help prevent recurrence of fungal nail infections.


By following these treatment strategies and maintaining good foot hygiene, individuals can effectively manage fungal nail infections and restore nail health.
