Do you struggle with Fungal Toenails and need some help?

Fungal toenails or onychomycosis is a common condition that we care for in our podiatry clinics. Onychomycosis can affect people of all ages and activity levels. It is a condition that is generally pain free but can cause physical pain and discomfort if it progresses. People can also be aware of the aesthetic look of the toenail, as it will often be discoloured yellow, white or even brown. The nail can be flaky and irregular in growth.

To confirm the type of fungus present, a sample of the nail can be taken and sent to pathology for culturing. There are many treatment options available, including: Topical paints/tinctures, Oral medications, Photodynamic therapy – PACT.

Photodynamic Therapy - PACT

PACT is a recent advancement in the treatment of fungal toe nails. Our podiatry team will assess the suitability of your affected nails for the treatment.

PACT uses a UV-sensitive gel and UV light to target the active fungal spores. This treatment involves reducing the affected toe nails and then treating the nails with PACT, three times in one week and then a follow up treatment at four weeks. This treatment is pain-free and has no reported side effects.

For all treatments options, best outcomes are achieved with regular reduction of the active fungal spores with sterile instruments until the new, fresh toenail progresses forward.
