Clove oil may be the next new thing for treating toenail fungus, thanks to its antifungal properties and pain-relieving properties. The antiseptic found in cloves help fight against bacterial and fungal growth, according to Dr. Biplav Agrawal, Consultant Dermatologist and Immunologist. He recommends mixing 6 to 8 drops of clove oil with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and applying it to your toenail fungus a few times a day.

While toenail fungus is troublesome to eradicate, it is not impossible. For more information about treatment, visit Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M. of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salamawill assess your injury and provide you with quality treatment.

Toenail Fungus Treatment

Toenail fungus is a problem which affects many people and is hard to get rid of. Fortunately, there are several methods to go about treating toenail fungus.

Antibiotics & Treatments 

Lamisil – is the most commonly effective treatment for toenail fungus. It is available as an antibiotic Terbinafine tablet and cream. Terbinafine is a chemical component which kills fungal growth on the body.  Applying regular doses will gradually kill the fungal growth. It is important to keep the area clean and air free. 

Talcum powder – applying powder on the feet and shoes helps keep the feet free of moisture and sweat.

Sandals or open toed shoes – wearing these will allow air movement and help keep feet dry. They also expose your feet to light, which fungus cannot tolerate. Socks with moisture wicking material also help as well

Alternative Treatments

There are always surgical procedures that are available for toenail fungus. Some people would like immediate quick removal of toenail fungus. Surgeons will be able to cut through and remove the growth using laser surgery. It is important not to try and remove it yourself. Once removed, your old shoes will need to be replaced to avoid reinfection.
