Onychomycosis is a fungal infection that warrants intervention. Structural components of the nail influence penetration of drug molecules and success often depends on the right treatment for the right patient. It takes approximately 12 to 18 months for a toenail plate to completely grow out which also impacts outcomes. This program will review key causes of toenail onychomycosis, the importance of nail physiology, biological factors influencing nail growth rates, onychomycosis in diabetic patients and more.
- Review toenail onychomycosis and key causes.
- Discuss factors to consider when deciding on appropriate onychomycosis treatment.
- Review therapeutic recommendations for the treatment of confirmed onychomycosis.
