Fungal Nail Treatment

Welcome to Active Step’s Conservative Fungal Nail Treatment service, where our skilled Podiatrists prioritise your nail health and comfort.

Understanding: Fungal Nail Infections

Fungal nail infections, also known as onychomycosis, can affect the appearance and texture of your nails. These infections result from fungi invading the nails, causing discoloration, thickening, and potential discomfort. Timely treatment is essential to prevent the infection from spreading and worsening.

Our Approach to Conservative Fungal Nail Treatment:

At Active Step, we provide a range of non-invasive and effective treatments to tackle fungal nail infections, allowing you to regain nail health without resorting to more invasive measures.
  • Reducing Nails with a Burr: Our podiatrists skillfully use a burr to gently reduce the thickness of infected nails, relieving discomfort and improving appearance.
  • Topical Antifungal Treatment: We offer topical antifungal solutions to directly target the infection and promote healthy nail regrowth.
  • Fungal Clippings for Diagnosis: In cases where oral medication may be beneficial, we take fungal clippings and send them to a lab for accurate diagnosis. This informs our decision to recommend oral medications.
  • Referral for Oral Medication: If necessary, we provide referrals for oral antifungal medication to effectively address stubborn infections.
