Nail Laser: Treatments effective for fungal nails include cutera nail laser or similar laser. The use of a topical anti fungal such as formula 3 (20 percent effective) with finally use of the steri shoe for sterilization of shoe gear. The three treatments together is the most effective treatment with the safest parameters for patients. Lastly oral anti fungal can be used but can have serious liver side effect.See 2 more doctor answers

How to prevent And treat toe nail fungal? If the toe fungal has been existence for years will it treated easily?
Meds or surgery: Toenail fungus is usually bad luck. There is a medicine you can apply topically which sometimes works, but takes a long time.

Is Soframycin an Topical Anti-Fungal Cream I'm using to treat my ripped off toe nail region? Does it help to cure the injury?
Not a cure: Soframycin is an antibiotic cream not an antifungal cream. It will not help cure the injury. It is not necessary to use an antibiotic cream on this type of injury. Keeping the nail bed clean and dry should be enough for it to heal. If you notice redness or pus around the injury you should see a medical provider as antibiotics by mouth may be necessary.
No: Ingrown portion of nail must be rmoved or cut away. Antibiotics may be necessary as well.See 3 more doctor answers

Keep in mind...: The fda has recently come out with a blanket statement that toenail fungus can not be cured. It is 'managed' by a number of modalities, but it can always come back in the future. Oral antifungal medicines (lamisil), topical medications (formula 3), laser therapy, surgical removal, homeopathic applications (tea tree oil). Talk to a podiatrist for what will be best and most effective for you.See 2 more doctor answers
Black toenail: A number of things can make a toenail/portion of the toenail look black: fungal infections, blood under nail, certain medications, inflammatory conditions. With meds, most/all nails are involved. Moles/freckles in the nail growth center (matrix) give linear pigmented brown or black streaks, so can melanoma. If the discoloration of the nail is new, please see your dermatologist for proper diagnosis.See 1 more doctor answer
Location, location..: The location of the pain would help. Side (s) pain usually means the nail is ingrown. When the central part is painful, then there could be something growing under the nail. This growth can cause pressure on the nail bed which can make the nail plate seem to hurt. To remove all doubt, have your toe evaluated.See 2 more doctor answers
See a doctor.: I would not recommend removing your own toenail. If you've had a trauma to the nail and it is lifting, and bruised or bleeding underneath, see a doctor to make sure you have not broken the bone beneath the nail. If the nail is ingrown or painful, your doctor can numb your toe and remove it in the office, in a controlled environment. I never recommend self-administered "bathroom surgery"!See 1 more doctor answer
Podiatrist: A podiatrist (foot doctor) can help you the most with an ingrown toenail. Once the nail is ingrown, it is highly unlikely that the nail will grow out normal. It generally needs the edge or the entire nail removed permanently.See 2 more doctor answers
Depends on severity: This would depend on the severity, how long it has been a problem, and if it is infected. If this is mild and only been bothering you a week may resolve with soaking your foot in warm water. If there is pus you may want to see a doctor. A podiatrist (foot doctor) and some family medicine doctors can remove part of or all the nail if needed.See 1 more doctor answer
Fungus??????: The only thing worth discussion is oral terbinafine. Once a $1200 prescription, it is now a $10 generic. Dosed at 1 a day for 3 months it works for about 60% of people. That is far better than anything else. Laser works but costs over $1000 not covered by insurance. Whatever is used, it takes a year or more for a normal nail. Note that fungus is but 1 of several possible causes for abnormal nails.
Nail care: Ingrown toenails can be remedied through soaking your foot in warm water, removal of embedded debris from the nail borders, and applying an antibiotic ointment to temporarily soften the corners. One should always try to cut the nails strait across to avoid leaving an embedded nail spicule. If pain or redness continues get it looked at by a professional.See 1 more doctor answer
