The World of Fungal Nails

0 Comments

KeryFlex can be thought about as the “No Cape” hero to fungal infected nails. Nails that have taken damage through work, sport or a simple stub of the toe on the corner of the bed can leave the condition of the nails on your toes sub-par. 

The KeryFlex treatment aims to simplify the treatment of damaged nails whether by trauma or infection by restoring the nail bed to its full potential. Without any complex surgical removal of any nail or having to take anti-fungal medications to deal with these nails, its a new innovative, painless and safe alternative that just requires a few treatments to tackle the issue from its roots.

– What can a Podiatrist do for me when I have a fungal nail infection?

When it comes to fungal nails, it’s important to clinically identify the impacted nail and to what degree the infection has reached. In determining the overall shape of the nail bed with regards to the presentation of nail quality, its up to the Podiatrist to determine if it worth applying the anti-fungal agent as the active ingredient in the substance needs to come in direct contact with the lowest layer of fungal infection to address the production issue of the organism. For this the Podiatrist might first want to remove a certain amount of affected nail tissue depending on the severity of the case or they may simply just apply the treatment directly on the nail if the presence of the fungal infection is mild to moderate.

Fungal infections start to affect the toenail from the tip first all the way through to the bottom of the nail bed. If a fungal infection is present you’ll notice a change in colour, cracking through the nail and possible malodour smells from a simple nail infection. 

KeryFlex is impregnated with an anti-fungal substance called “Piroctone” that gets deep into the nails to fight off fungal infections that can be problematic to the looks, function and feel of the nail. The flexible structure of the resin allows for the nail underneath the medicated layer to deal with the infection whilst preserving the look and feel of the nail itself so it’s a win-win situation.

– Can I use my nail polish and acetone on the KeryFlex nail?

The beauty of KeryFlex is the versatile nature of this medical grade product is the ability to use nail polish right over the top of the restored nail! It’s friendly to many household items that would normal damage nail tissue.

A KeryFlex treatment is case by case dependant on results but the standard protocol for its use is based around 8-10 weeks between treatments, with each treatment taking anywhere between 15-45 minutes.

The earlier you treat a nail infection the better chance you have of rooting the problem out from your feet and start to feel confident about your regular looking nails again. 

Have a chat with your Podiatrist next time you see them about the KeryFlex treatment if your nails aren’t looking right.
