Treatment for onychomycosis (nail fungus)


Nail fungus (onychomycosis)

It is a fungal infection reflected in the nail plate (nail).

This condition can cause a loss of the normal color of the nail, onycholysis or detachment of the nail and in some cases whitlow or infection of the sides of the nail.

This problem can coexist with a fungal skin infection called dermatomycosis or commonly called athlete's foot,  generating cracks, maceration and itching in the plantar or interdigital areas of the affected foot.

The causes are diverse because a  increasing number of athletes, runners have this affectation due to the humidity and heat that is generated in our feet during exercise.

The treatment will consist of a  diagnosis through a culture and the PCR test, which will determine  What kind of fungus does the nail have?

These tests are necessary since we can adapt the treatment to counteract the type of fungus present in the nail or skin.
