Stop Living with Toenail Fungus-Get The Cure!

Updated on September 01, 2009

Have your nails changed in color or gotten so thick that they’re hard to trim? Do they cause you discomfort, Feet pain or tenderness? If so, you could have onychomycosis—or, as it’s more commonly called, a nail fungus infection.

More than 35 million people in the United States have nail fungus. The fungus consists of tiny organisms called dermatophytes that can infect fingernails and toenails. A fungus infection lives in the nail bed deep beneath the nail. The nail bed provides a safe place for fungus to grow. That’s why it’s so hard to cure nail fungus. As time passes, the infection can worsen and may cause pain or tenderness.

Onychomycosis(toenail fungus) is the most frequent nail disease, which could impair the patient's quality of life.

If you’ve tried various remedies to treat your toe nail fungus infection you’ve probably discovered that they just don’t work. The reason is because most treatments which are applied topically to the toenail simply stay on top of the toenail for a few minutes, then evaporate and do not penetrate the nail bed where the fungus lives and grows.
