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. There are oral medications that still take several months, but are somewhat more effective. Getting rid of fungus that you have had for many years is tough. Sometimes the nail needs to be removed

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?

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.

I have a fungal infection on the left foot and the big toe nail. What should I do?

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.

Why is black under my toe nail?

Why is black under my toe nail?

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.

Why does my toe nail hurt constantly?

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.

In what ways can I remove my toe nail?

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"!

Where do I go for an ingrowing toe nail issue?

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.

Any tips for taking care of an ingrowing toe nail?

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.

I want a cure for toe nail name?

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.
