Treatment at Nenagh Footcare Clinic
At Nenagh Footcare Clinic, we consider the level of infection caused by the fungus, prior to advising on possible treatment options.
In the case of a dermatophyte fungal infection – If infection is at the very top of the nail then Topical lacquers will be advised. Once it penetrates further down the nail, nail lacquers will not be effective as they can no longer reach the fungus as it travels down the nail bed.
At Nenagh Footcare Clinic The Lacuna fungal nail removal treatment is offered. This is a successful and proven treatment. It involves the drilling of several micro holes through the nail plate to the nail bed. This efficiently allows the antifungal medication to penetrate straight to the nail bed, effectively reaching the site of infection and clearing it. This is a very effective treatment for the removal of dermatophyte fungal infections. This treatment is repeated at 6 week intervals until the fungus has cleared from the nails.
