If you’ve got toenail fungus, you’re not alone
Onychomycosis (on-ick-oh-my-CO-sis), a condition that may involve the toenails or fingernails, is relatively common. It may affect as many as 35 million people in the US — but toenail infections are particularly common. JUBLIA is indicated for onychomycosis of the toenail only.
What is toenail fungus?
Toenail fungus is an infection that lives underneath the nail, in the skin of the nail bed. Toenail fungus is more than a cosmetic concern.
Symptoms of toenail fungus may include:
- Thickening of the nail
- Change in nail shape
- Loosening/lifting of nail
- Crumbling of nail edges
Factors that can increase the risk of developing toenail fungus include:
- Wearing closed-toe shoes
- Getting pedicures with improperly sanitized tools
- Having a chronic illness, such as diabetes or HIV
- Having a deformed nail or a nail disease
Several things make it especially challenging to treat toenail fungus:
- The thickness of the nail can pose a barrier between treatment and the fungus under the nail.
- Additionally, the time it takes for a healthy nail to grow back varies from person to person. Even after the fungus has been eliminated, nail regrowth can sometimes take a year or longer.
- Recurrence is a common problem with onychomycosis.
