Do You Have Onychomycosis of the Toenail?
If your child has one or more thick, yellow, or brittle toenails, they might have a fungal infection called onychomycosis. While millions of adults develop this condition at some point in their lives, stubborn nail fungus can also affect kids and teenagers, causing embarrassment and even spreading to other family members. And since the infection lives and grows under the toenail, it can be difficult to reach and hard to treat.
If your child is 6 - 16 years old and has toenail fungus, you might be interested in a new medical research study for an investigational, clear medication that is applied directly to the toenail. Participants in this study will receive all study-related care at no cost, and will be asked to meet with a study doctor up to 11 times over a 1-year period. These visits allow us to monitor your child’s condition, health, and overall experiences, and participants may be compensated up to $1,280 for time and travel.
Your child might be eligible if:
• They are between 6-16 years +11 months old.
• They have a fungal nail infection affecting at least one big toenail.
• Within the last 6 months they have not used oral anti-fungal medications to treat toenail fungus (previous topical medications are allowed.)
