Fungal infections relatively often occur on the skin and nails, causing familiar conditions such as onychomycosis and athlete’s foot (fungal infection of the nail and foot). These diseases are caused by contamination with a fungal spore, which penetrates the skin and grows into a fungus.
Treatments for fungal infections
Fungal infections of the nail usually start with discolouration of the cuticle. The nail then becomes thick and brittle, and may even become (partially) separated from the nail bed. Fungal infections of the skin typically occur on the sole of the foot and between the toes. There are various medicines and over-the-counter products available for these types of fungal infections.
Itraconazol, Terbinafine and Trisporal are antifungal medicines that attack the fungal cells by damaging the cell wall. These medicines require a prescription, which you can get after an online consultation via our website (if the doctor approves your request). We also have a selection of over-the-counter products which can be ordered online without a prescription. See below to order.
