Fungal Nails

Fungal nails most often affect the toes, but it is not uncommon for this type of infection to also affect the fingernails. This condition may not cause too much harm, but can often take some time to clear.
Fungal organisms, or fungi, are the most likely reason for developing a fungal nails infection - the most common one being onychomycosis. Although, yeasts and moulds can also be responsible. This condition usually starts with a white or yellow spot appearing under the nail. This can progress to the nail becoming thick, discoloured and crumbling at the edges, as the infection sets in, with more than one nail being affected. People often look to treat this condition from the irritation and discomfort it can lead to, as well as the unattractive appearance it can give.

Older people are more likely to develop a fungal nail infection, although they can affect anyone at any age. The ageing process causes a variety of changes to the face and body and these changes can extend to the nails. As with the skin, the nails can also become dry, which can result in brittle nails that can crack. These cracks can then provide a gateway for fungi to get in and take advantage of the inefficiency of blood flow and a weakened immune system; that ageing is also responsible for. The risk of developing a fungal nail infection can be increased through a history of athlete’s foot, excessive sweating, injury to the nail or skin and going barefoot in damp communal areas - such as swimming pools.

Good hygiene and breathable footwear can help to reduce the risk of a fungal nail infection developing if a person is prone to hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) on the feet or breakouts of athlete’s foot. Light Touch Clinic is proud to be one of few aesthetics clinics to have an in-house laser treatment for fungal nail infections - Lunula laser. This treatment is performed by a trained professional and works to destroy the fungal spores through targeted thermal energy. A series of around 4 procedures can eradicate the issue leaving you with enhanced comfort as well as beautiful feet, so you can pop on your peep toes, or flout your flip flops with confidence.
