Our toe nails have several functions, from protecting the bone at the end of the toe to improving the sense of touch. When something goes wrong like discolouration or crumbling, treatment is sought because it either becomes uncomfortable,thickened or looks bad. The title Onychomycosis is the term used when fungal infections attack the nail. It can be a bit of a search finding treatments for nail fungus. Oral medications can be effective but treatment is not always suitable for everyone. Any treatment is often a lengthy process due to the time it takes for the nail to grow. Topical paints with patience are an alternative. Filing down the nail to allow the treatment to penetrate helps the process. Monphytol paint was safe and effective but is no longer available,so the arrival of Mykored also provides an effective and well tolerated treatment. Tests prove effectiveness against the following fungi and yeasts:Trichophyton verrucosum, Trychophyton mentagrophytes , Trychophyton violaceum , Trychophyton rubrum , Epidermophyton fluccosum, Microsporum canis, Candida albicans, and Candida krusei.
