Fungal Nail infections are a very common problem affecting around three in every 100 people in the UK. The responsible fungus is usually the same as that that causes athlete’s foot.
In athlete’s foot the responsible fungus affects the hard material (keratin) that makes up the outer layer of the skin. When the fungus spreads to the keratin of the nails, the result is a fungal nail infection. Fungal nail can affect both the fingernails and toenails, the fungus most commonly affects the feet.
Onychomycosis (fungal nail infections) are contagious and easily spread, it’s important to stop the fungus from spreading. Laser light therapy uses light at particular wavelengths to interact with the fungus without affecting the healthy skin or body.
