Treatment Strategies

Preventive Measures



Treatment aims to eradicate the fungus, restore the nail’s appearance, and prevent recurrence.

Treatment modalities include:

  • Topical agents: Such as ciclopirox or amorolfine, are effective for mild infections.
  • Oral antifungal medications: Drugs like terbinafine and itraconazole are prescribed for more severe cases but can have side effects and require monitoring.
  • Mechanical debridement: Physically removing the affected nail area can reduce fungal load and improve topical treatment efficacy.
  • Laser and light-based therapies: These emerging treatments have shown promise in treating onychomycosis without the side effects associated with oral medications.
