Onychomycosis or Fungal Nails affect an estimated 1.6million Australians. Fungal nails are caused by an infection to the skin under the nails which causes the nail to become discoloured and mottled in appearance.
Fungal nails can present in the following ways
- Thick, yellow and crumbly nails
- White plaque-like nails
- PACT light therapy– a revolutionary treatment which uses light therapy to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi from the skin. The treatment is pain and hassle free and offers an easy alternative to rid the nail of infection.
- Topical Nail paint- which requires daily or weekly application over several months
- Oral anti-fungal medication- which requires a positive pathology report and tablets for up to 2 months.
