DR. JOHN A. HARDY

 

ONYCHOMYCOSIS AFFECTS 2.4 MILLION CANADIANS OR OVER 7% OF THE OVERALL POPULATION.  

APPARENTLY THERE IS A NEW TOPICAL AGENT WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE JUST AS EFFICIENT AS ORAL MEDICATIONS.  

MR. BRUCE RAMSDEN, TORONTO PODIATRIST AND PRESIDENT OF THAT PRESTIGIOUS ORGANIZATION, THE ONTARIO PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION, STATES, "WITH A SIMILAR EFFICACY, TOPICAL AGENTS ARE A MORE BENEFICIAL OPTION TO TREAT NAIL FUNGUS INFECTIONS THAN ORAL TREATMENTS, WHICH PRESENT SERIOUS RISKS OF COMPLICATIONS."

I PERSONALLY DO NOT AGREE WITH THESE FIGURES AS I THINK THAT TOPICAL APPLICATIONS ARE VERY INEFFECTIVE WHEN COMPARED TO ORAL MEDICATIONS.  THE PROBLEM WITH ORAL MEDICATIONS IS THAT THEY HAVE A HIGH RISK OF LIVER AND KIDNEY DAMAGE AND THE REASON WHY MY FOOT CLINIC WOULD NEVER, EVER RECOMMEND THIS AVENUE OF TREATMENT.

MY TORONTO FOOT CLINIC HAS RECENTLY INVESTED IN LASER FOR FUNGAL NAIL TREATMENT AS THERE ARE NO SIDE EFFECTS AND IT IS VERY EFFICIENT METHOD OF TREATMENT.  OUR SUCCESS RATE HAS BEEN VERY GOOD THUS FAR AND WE ARE PLEASED TO PROVIDE THIS TREATMENT FOR OUR PATIENTS.

Mr. Ramsden
