Are You Sick of Fighting Toenail Fungus? A Leading Houston, TX, Podiatrist Provides a Revolutionary Treatment For Toenail Fungus, All Without Medications or Ointments or Creams, and Without Requiring Any Anesthetics. This Houston-Based Toenail Fungus Treatment Is Safe, Quick, Easy, and Extraordinarily Effective (Better Than 95 Percent!)

Anyone who has had a case of toenail fungus knows exactly how hard it is to get rid of the problem. Medications rarely do anything, and usually carry side effects as bad as (or worse than) the fungus problem you are trying to eliminate.

Creams and lotions seem better than oral medications in some ways, but rarely seem to work to get rid of toenail fungus. And even if they do manage to accomplish a small reduction of the fungus, they are usually messy and bothersome to apply.

Ultimately, the reason fungal creams and ointments so often fail is because they cannot penetrate below the surface of the nail. If you really want to get rid of your toenail fungus, you have to treat the problem beneath the nail where the fungus actually is. Only then will you begin to notice real results.

What Is Toenail Fungus And What Are The Symptoms?

Toenail fungus (also known as Onychomycosis) is of course clearly a type of fungal infection. But it is an especially tenacious one and can rot away at the toenails for decades. The symptoms include:

  • Discoloration of the nail, including white patches or yellowish streaks
  • Thickening of the nails
  • Brittle or flaking nails
  • Darkening of the skin below the nails
  • Separation of the nail from the nail bed, which typically only occurs in severe cases.

A toenail fungus will not usually go away on its own. The fungus will last for years, even decades, and will probably continue to get worse unless you decide to visit a podiatrist and have the problem addressed properly.

Onychomycosis (fungus of the nail) is a chronic, progressive, debilitating disease of the nail, nail bed and matrix (root). Over the years dermatophytes (fungal elements) enter the nail bed from the skin. The traditional treatments of topical creams, lotions, etc, although somewhat effective, are difficult to use in chronic and progressive cases. The main stay of treatment has been oral medications. Lamisil (terbinafine)has been the most effective treatment recently in the eradication of onychomycosis with an approximately 70% cure rate; however, blood tests need to be taken due to the fact that there are side effects, especially with the liver.

Cost is also a consideration as well. Treatment needs to be at least for three months and recurrence rate has been high. Often a second round of three months oral medicine is necessary. There are other medications including Diflucan, which is much too expensive and takes a year of treatment. Sporonox, another treatment, has a much lower effective rate and also is expensive. "To say we can now address this problem safely without medicines is nothing short of amazing,"says Dr.Parker.

What Types of Treatment Options Are Available?

There are several different treatment options out there, but most of them are not very effective. Some may provide some relief from the symptoms, but will not actually get rid of thefungus itself. Not entirely. (And sometimes not at all.)

The more common treatment options include:

  • Oral Medications and Antibiotics
  • Ointments and Creams

Oral medications do work to get rid of toenail fungus in a portion of the cases, but these strong anti-fungal medications can have many negative side effects. One look at the long list of side effects shows you how these medications can be problematic in their own right, which is why so many people want to stay away from medications if at all possible. Additionally,oral medications won't work if the fungal infection is a strain that is resistant to the particular formulation.

Creams and ointments are the worst treatment options, though the most common you will find advertised everywhere on the internet. Most of these are nothing but snake oil, and their proprietors are selling worthless bottles of goop. The fungal infection is a problem beneath the toenail itself, and creams cannot penetrate properly without removing your toenail. (Not exactly a popular option.) And even then, there is still no guarantee that an anti-fungal cream will provide a cure.

Even if you roll the dice and throw some money at some mystery cream, you shouldn't forget how messy these creams can be to apply.They can be greasy, smelly, and may even stain your clothing, bedding, and carpets. And you are going to have to be walking around with the stuff on your feet for months.

That hardly seems encouraging.

Is There A Treatment For Toenail Infections That Actually Works?

Fortunately, YES.

Houston Toenail Fungus TreatmentsThere is a new revolutionary approach that has been gaining a great deal of attention from podiatrists and other medical professionals. This new approach does not require medications or invasive and dangerous surgical procedures. There are also no messy creams to deal with.

This treatment has come close to near perfection in one particular case: a 95% rate of effectiveness.

Many similar treatments try to mimic this one, but they all fall short.

Why does the revolutionary toenail fungus treatment work? Quite simple,actually: It is able to target beneath the surface of your nail, and deep into your nail bed, to attack the problem at its source. The fungal infection does not just sit on top of your nail, so how can you expect a treatment to work if it does not penetrate below the surface? This new treatment does penetrate, and it does so in a way that is both perfectly safe and highly effective.

There are no medications involved.

There are no fungal creams or ointments.

And you aren't going to have to worry about any shots or anesthetics.

A couple short visits to the podiatrist for these treatments and your fungal infection will be gone. You never have to worry about harmful side effects, taking medication several times a day, or applying messy creams. After the treatments the fungal infection will be completely gone, and your nails can begin to grow in clean and healthy again. Since the nails grow so slowly, it can take about six months to a year until your healthy nails can grow in, of course. But your healthy nails will be on their way. And the fungus and that awful feeling of having a fungus will be gone.
