Can clipping of fungal areas around nails help to fight off infection?
Hello, I am a 33 years old male. I have a fungal infection around my nails. My friend told me that clipping them would help me get rid of them. Is it true? Can clipping of fungal areas around nails help to fight off infection?
@bhavishya Hello, Yes, treatment usually begins with your dermatologist trimming your infected nail, cutting back each infected nail to the place where it attaches to your finger or toe. This helps get rid of some fungus. To completely get rid of the infection apply medications. If you have a mild infection, a medicine that you apply to your nails may get rid of the infection. This treatment helps keep new fungus out while the nails grow. Clipping should be done by a dermatologist.
