Toenail fungus can be incredibly difficult and stubborn to get rid of. Besides looking unsightly, it also causes pain and challenge walking. You may also not want to show your foot in public either. Serious infections can result because toenail fungus can cause breaks in your skin which allow bacteria to enter.
To top it off, toenail fungus rarely goes away on its own. And standard treatments don’t always work. It’s also common for people to not realize they have a toenail fungus problem and not seek treatment.
How Do You Get Rid of Toenail Fungus?
The path isn’t always straightforward. Typically, you start with an oral or topical medication, while also removing the diseased nail matter. In severe cases, surgical treatment may be required to remove the infected nail. When permanently removed, and assuming your toenail hasn’t responded to any other form of treatment, this eliminates the infection and prevents it from returning again.
