If you have thick, yellowish-brown, chipped and foul smelling toe nails, a nasty group of fungi called dermatophytes may have attacked your nails, thriving off keratin, the nail’s protein substance.

Also referred to as Onychomycosis, fungal nail infections affect about 30 million Americans and can have serious consequences to the elderly, diabetics, and individuals with immune deficiencies.

In addition to causing difficulty and pain when walking, fungal infections underneath the surface of the nail are often accompanied by a secondary bacterial and/or yeast infection in the nail plate.

Current treatment options for onychomycosis are topical creams, oral drugs, mechanical and chemical therapies or a combination of these modalities. The efficacy of these treatments is very low: about 50% even when used in a combination, and recurrence is typical shortly after the treatment is discontinued.

There is a growing body of research and clinical evaluations by physicians that demonstrate much higher efficacy of treating toenail fungus by lasers. Several devices are already used off-label by medical practitioners in the U.S., and many agree that a comprehensive therapy that includes laser treatment is the best option available today.
