Different treatment options are available. Emtrix is an over-the-counter nail lacquer that is applied once daily. Other topical agents are available with a prescription. Oral anti-fungal pills are sometimes used but can affect the liver so close monitoring is required by your physician. Be advised it will take about 1 year for the nail to grow out and return to normal.
Preventative measures include keeping nails trimmed short, always wearing shoes in public areas, and avoiding tight-fitting footwear. At Midhurst Pharmacy we’re happy to answer your health and wellness questions and help choose a product that’s right for you.
