Are you having problems with toenail fungus? Toenail fungus can be very difficult to treat because it is very stubborn and slow in going away and is quick to return. Today, one of the most effective ways to treat toenail fungus is with the use of a laser. If you would like to visit our podiatry office in Temecula for treatment of toenail fungus, contact us today.
Our foot care practice is Temecula Valley Podiatry. Our expert foot care doctor is Dr. Richard B. Haas. Dr. Haas has been providing exemplary podiatric care since 1980. Dr. Haas is not only certified by the American Board of Lower Extremity Surgery but he is also Laser and Ossatron certified. Fungal toenails are very difficult to treat because they are so resistant to treatment – much more so than treating Athlete’s foot. Podiatrists may use topical or oral antifungal medicines but these are not always well-tolerated. Oral antifungal medicines can cause harm to the liver and may not even be very successful in treatment. This is why at our podiatry office in Temecula we are happy to be able to offer laser treatment for treating fungal toenails.
YAG laser is approved by the FDA for the treatment of fungal toenails and we feel very confident in providing this treatment for our patients who have toenail fungus. This treatment is very effective in treating toenail fungus and also makes it much less likely that the toenail fungus will return. When you come to our practice with fungal toenails the first thing our doctor will do is assess the severity of your fungal toenail problem. Different types of toenail fungus may respond differently to different treatments. Most types of toenail fungus do not respond to being treated topically. When you receive laser treatment for your fungal toenails you will receive several treatments at a specific time period to be determined by our podiatrist. Our foot doctor will recommend how often the treatments should occur based on his analysis of your particular fungal problem. Ways to avoid toenail fungus include: don’t share shoes or socks with others; don’t share nail clippers; wear dry socks and change them several times daily if necessary; wear dry shoes that allow air circulation around your feet; wear shower sandals when you are in a public shower; make sure your nail spa uses well sterilized equipment.
