    Hi everyone,

    I have a bad case of nail fungus infection, and I've tried different footsoaks and topical creams but none of them seem to work, or work fast enough. Also, I think I'm starting to be allergic or develop some a rash because of them so I would very much like to stop those treatments. I heard about at home laser devices you can use to treat fungus infection at home and I was wondering if anyone here has tried it, is it safe & effective, and if so, what specific devices/models/brands can you recommend?

    Getting desperate here -- going on a trip to the Caribbean with my kids next month and I'm pretty sure closed shoes aren't the way to enjoy the nice beach and sunshine.

    Hi there!

    That vacation sounds awesome, and of course you'll want to wear your flip flops and strappy sandals! Some soaks and creams really take a while to work, and some end up not really working depending on your infection. As for laser therapy, it's a strong contender cause it's much faster and powerful. I tried the Cure-Ex laser device from Pain Relief, and I have to say, it's great! It's much faster, safe and easy to use. I used it 3 times a day for 7 minutes each, and in a week I began to see my infected nail lightening up, and the odor was going away. Completely fungus free in a month or less!

    NOTHING works fast; expect 3-6 months whichever method you use. You need to persevere with whatever method you use.

    Hi. I would definitely recommend going to a professional. Go see a good podiatrist. My brother had the same experience and those home remedies don't really help it that much. He went to get Cool Touch Laser Treatment and he said that the procedure was painless and quick. I think it's only available here in Los Angeles. You should definitely do some research about it. Hope this helps.
