We’re constantly looking for a quick solution to better-looking toenails. Unfortunately, there isn’t one accessible for the toenails. Due to the fact that all treatments for fungal toenails target the new toenail development, clearing the nail plate takes at least as much time as it does to completely grow out. A great toenail usually takes 9-12 months to grow, whereas lesser toenails take 6-9 months.
Providing the most definitive therapy is the greatest method to ensure that the toenail grows out properly and as fast as possible. The most effective treatment is to use an oral antifungal medication like Lamisil. Many people use this with a topical drug, such as Formula 3, to boost the effectiveness of the oral medication.
While it may take some time for the fungal toenail infection to clear up after treatment, that does not mean you have to live with unsightly toenails until then. KeryFlex is a treatment that we offer in our Houston podiatry clinic. KeryFlex is a natural-looking artificial toenail that is also healthy. It is made of a flexible resin that, unlike artificial nails, will not dig into the toe and become infected. KeryFlex is popular among women since it can be shaped and polished. It is also possible to remove nail polish without harming the nail. When wearing sandals, men prefer the natural look that KeryFlex offers.
