Foot Care – Fungal Nails
Fungal nails start of as yellow streaks on your finger/toenails. When it spreads, it changes colour and is brittle. They are also very embarrassing. To get rid of them is difficult, as they will not clear up on their own.
Fungal infections usually start of by the same type of fungus as Athletes foot. As they grown in warm, moist places, your feet are perfect breeding grounds for them. If you are healthy, it will look bad, hurt and can damage your nail and nail bed permanently. If you have diabetes or have a weak immune system, the condition can get a lot more serious. It is recommended that you visit your podiatrist as soon as possible, to get this cleared out.
Fungal nail infections are highly contagious. They are easy to catch in places where you’re barefoot, such as changing rooms or swimming pools, or via unsterilized equipment in nail and beauty salons. If you touch someone who is infected and you forget to wash your hands, it’s easy to transfer the infection. Sharing towels, bed sheets and clothing can also spread the infection in the family. It’s a good idea to tell those close to you about your fungal nail infection so they remember to take similar precautions too.
To treat this, you can use an over the counter antifungal cream, or nail polish. As this needs to be applied for upto a year, the process of getting rid of fungal nails is long and tedious. Even then, in most cases, this can take longer if your immune system is not helping. Severe fungal nails would need medicines from your doctor, and these have serious side effects.
Most over the counter solutions ask you to apply medicines over the nail. With over 85% of all infections occurring under the nail plates, and on the nail bed, this does not fix the problem.
