Do you have thick, yellow, wavy toenails? You may have toenail fungus and it’s not too late to start treating them!
Onychomycosis, more commonly known as toenail and fingernail fungus, is a widespread and often embarrassing fungal condition. Fungal nail infections account for nearly half of all nail disorders and can take 6 months or more to clear. Toenail fungus is more common than fingernail fungus, mostly due to the lack of airflow and daily cleaning. Closed-toed shoes are also a common cause of toenail fungus conditions, as they prevent normal aeration of the nails.
Commercially available prescriptions for toenail fungus have several drawbacks including drug interactions and can cost between $500 – $1500 for a bottle.
Undoubtedly, the best way to treat toenail fungus is through transdermal compounded medications containing ingredients that are able to effectively penetrate the nail and deliver the medication deeper in the nail. Our experienced pharmacists work closely with the patient and physician to create compounded medications tailored to the patients individual needs, including dosage sizes, preferred application methods and medical chemicals used.
If you are interested in using the medication, visit one of four Gateway Pharmacy locations and we can work with you and your provider to help you get your compounded medication.
