Nail Fungus Beaumaris
Melbourne based Beaumaris Podiatrists treat ’Fungal Nail Infections’ . This is a fungal nail disease common in the feet (onychomycosis). Toenail fungus infections have long frustrated podiatrists due to the lack of an effective, safe and affordable treatment. Most treatments require daily application for months, even years with average results. Oral tablets can have a good success rate but risk severe side effects. Nail fungus laser treatment by local podiatrists in Melbourne has a good success rate if they have a good technique, but it can be uncomfortable due to heat build up, and is expensive. Nail fungus infection signs are characteristic, and visual diagnosis can be confirmed by Melbourne podiatrists (scrapings are taken from infected nails and sent to pathology in doubtful cases). Beaumaris Podiatrists have introduced a new treatment, ‘PACT’ nail fungus therapy, which combines a special non toxic dye, matched with a specific wavelength 630nm intense LED light , without any pain or damage to skin while treating the fungal nails. Melbourne based Beaumaris Podiatrists also treat other common foot and leg conditions such as osteoarthritis,Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis/tendinosis, Severes Disease, Bunions, Ingrown Toenails, Corns and Calluses, Diabetes Complications, Ulcers, and Knee and Arthritic pain. Treatments are based on comprehensive consultations and professional advice. A comprehensive range of foot care products are available to complement treatments,including bunion splints, toe and heel pads, Red Robin circulation socks, compression socks and stockings.
