Nail fungus infection is a common condition. It is usually indicated by nails that are brittle and discolored, mostly on the toes. It is scientifically known as onychomycosis. It has the characteristics of an athlete’s foot, but it affects the nails instead of the skin on the bottom of the feet and in between toes.
The following are the most commonly prescribed treatments for nail fungus infection: oral antifungals, topical antifungals, laser or photodynamic therapy, and surgery. The oral treatment is the most effective of them all. Treatment using this may last for two months when the fungus affects your fingernails and three months when it’s the toenails that get infected.
