It’s April 1 and you’re in high spirits because it’s a warm, sunny spring day. There’s no fooling you today! That is until you slip on your sandals and notice a yellow-brown spot on your big toenail. You feel frustration and anger build up inside you as you realize the latest treatment you tried to get rid of your toenail fungus actually didn’t do the trick. If this is something you can relate to then you need to try toenail fungus laser treatment.


It’s easy to be fooled into thinking you don’t have toenail fungus any longer because it can seem like it goes away for awhile, only to return when you least expect it. Don’t be fooled into thinking the treatment options below will be your solution to toenail fungus.

At-Home Treatments

When you first notice you have toenail fungus many people’s first inclination is to search for toenail fungus treatments on the internet. Once you type that term into the search bar you’re given a list of results. You’ll see some really strange ideas such as:

  • Soaking your feet in Listerine, bleach, or your own urine
  • Applying Vick’s Vapor Rub or a baking soda paste to your nails
  • Using garlic or lemon juice to get to the hard-to-reach areas

These unusual treatments are not prescribed by doctors, but many people try them first because the toenail fungus isn’t very serious and they aren’t willing to invest in getting rid of it.

Oral and Topical Treatments

Some treatments that are prescribed by doctors, or can sometimes be purchased over-the-counter, are oral or topical treatments. These come in the form of pills, creams, or lacquers. Common names you’ll come across are:

  • PurNail
  • Funginix
  • Zetaclear

While these are sometimes effective, they usually don’t get rid of the toenail fungus completely. They also can have some serious side effects. Many patients say they don’t like to have to remember to take a pill every day or apply a medication for months or years without any guarantee the treatment will get rid of the fungus.

The best part is that toenail fungus laser treatment gets rid of your toenail fungus completely. If you do get toenail fungus again, it’s because you didn’t take the proper precautions to prevent it. The treatment is so effective because it uses a laser light beam that is able to break through the surface of the nail and vaporize the fungal pathogens causing the infection. Then the fungus is no longer able to grow.

At Adler Footcare we believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment. If you have toenail fungus schedule a free consultation with a New York podiatrist to find out the treatment option that is best for you
