Onychomycosis is the medical term for nail infections which affect toenails and fingernails but toenail infections are more common, and that is what will be addressed in this article. For the treatment of toenail fungus to be effective, the remedy needs to target the nail bed to destroy the infection.
Treatments for Toenail Fungus
The following is an overview of three treatments for toe nail fungus that were ranked highly.
Zetaclear was ranked as the most effective treatment for toenail fungus from the study. One of the reasons why it was ranked the highest is because of its newly registered FDA homeopathic treatment. Data suggests that it works on over 85% of people who try it. This is very high being a non prescription product. For visible results, growth of infected nail is required to fully grow back. It takes about four to six months to obtain clear nails with the Zetaclear treatment hence immediate results are not expected. All toenail fungus treatments require patience and this applies to Zetaclear as well. A 6 month treatment period is required. This treatment which is also topically applied has no side effects and works well with severe and mild infections due to a powerful approach.
Funginix review (trade name- Fungisil)
This is a 'FDA registered' treatment which is effective on toenails. Its ingredients comprise of chemicals that are documented to get rid of nail fungus. Comprehensive research and tests done concluded it is the best toenail fungus therapy. Most non prescription treatments and medications provide only temporary relief from symptoms but does not effectively clear the fungus. Funginix solution is applied topically but penetrates the nails to reach the nail bed, attacks the fungus and cures it from inside out. This topical ointment increases the body's anti infection and natural anti inflammatory capabilities, and thus allows the body to fight the fungus with no side effects. Ingredients in this anti fungal treatment penetrate the infected nail and destroy the fungus. It also has no harsh chemicals.
Funginix also helps in clearing the discoloration that is commonly associated with toenail fungus. 97 percent of those tested reported shiny and clear nails within a period of twelve to fifteen weeks. In addition, it was reported that nails grew and did not show signs of fungus thereafter. The subjects with severe infections (15%) had the fungi infection disappear within a period of 4 to 5 months. Not only is Funginix really effective, with the ability to clear the fungus, but it was reported that the infection does not return even after many months later. This is unlike other fungal treatments reviewed.
