Understanding Toenail Fungus

Toenail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a debilitating and frustrating foot condition. As the following infographic notes, it affects nearly 13% of the adult population in the form of brittle, yellow nails that easily break.

Treatment for toenail fungus come in a range of options, including topical and oral medicines. However, compared to laser treatments, these treatment options are slow and have a range of other side effects that can negatively affect your health. Additionally, oral and topical treatments may only cure your foot condition for a short amount of time; laser treatment for toenail fungus is the only sure way to rid yourself of toenail fungus for good.
