Toenail fungus affects millions of people and is a very hard nail problem to get rid of.

Laser treatment of toenail fungus is probably the best type of treatment you can have to have healthy nails once again.

Once a person has had laser treatment of toenail fungus, they find the fungus usually does not return.  with a lot of home remedies such as white vinegar and vicks, you need to keep treating the nail even after it looks like it has cleared up.

If your nail fungus problem is not very severe, then definitely home remedies such as treating the nail with tea tree oil, can have a positive effect over the long term.  in fact I would say tea tree oil is probably the best home remedy you can use. 

Of course a healthy diet is important too and eating foods rich in potassium, vitamin B and calcium will help promote nail growth.

If your nail fungus is very severe and has not responded to any topical treatments, then laser treatment would be your best option.

Compared to many of the topical treatments on the market, laser fungal nail treatment is far more effective.

Its success rate is around 88%.

Medication prescribed by your doctor has a much smaller success rate compared to that of laser treatment .

Because it is very easy for the fungus to return, your chances of this happening are much less when you have this type of treatment.

Treatment is only for a few minutes and is usually only for one sitting, unless your nail fungus is at a very advanced stage, in which case you will need more than one treatment.

Small infra red rays penetrate your nail, and is quite painless and does not generate any heat.  it has been reported some people have felt a slight tingling, but that is probably all you will feel.

Having laser treatment is very safe, you will experience no side effects and your nail or surrounding skin will not be damaged.

You will not see a difference to the nail immediately, you will see the difference when the new nail starts to grow.

Your doctor may treat all your nails, even if you only have one or two toenails or fingernails with fungus, because there could be fungus growing yet you are unable to see it.

The only problem with laser treatment, it is quite expensive and probably not covered by your health insurance.  If all other avenues of trying to get rid of this embarrassing problem have failed, it may well be worth the money.

When it comes to feeling and looking good, there are times when you just have to say ‘hang the expense’, and get your confidence back.

There is nothing worse than having to wear covered shoes on a warm sunny day, because you don’t want anyone to see your ugly toenails.

Sometimes taking vitamin supplements such as biotin, can help stop the recurrance of this type of problem, once you have cleared it up.

Many people will allow this type of nail problem to persist, because they are either unaware of what it is, or at a loss as to how to get rid of it.

Laser treatment for toenails fungus or fingernail fungus could be your only option.
