Wouldn’t it be nice this summer to have clean clear toenails? I wrote a little about this subject a few years ago. Check it out click here. In the last few years a couple new products have been produced for topical nail fungus. You may have heard of Jublia and Kerydin. My cost for these medications are over $1000.00 each for less than a half ounce. The price for gold today is ~ $600.00 for a half ounce. It is truly amazing what is going on right now with the cost of medications.
We are seeing this with brand name medications and generic medications as well. Prices are climbing and there does not seem to be a ceiling. For an interesting read on this read this story “A $2,500 tube of cold-sore cream? Now that stings” from the LA times in March of 2015. (Click here)
Here are some steps you can take to prevent toenail fungus.
- Don’t wear the same shoes every day. Rotate your shoes. Allow the sweat to dry.
- Apply foot powder to inside of shoe to dry shoes more efficiently.
- Keep nails trim and clean daily.
- If you like pedicures, ask what preventive measure are taken to prevent nail fungus.
