A healthy and good-looking nail is a sign of health and personality. Imagine having tow nails that look thick, discolored and disfigured? Will you like them? But when we don't take care in time that results. After permanent disfigurement, not much can be done. Let us learn about how to prevent and cure the nail fungus.
Nail fungus- how does it spread?
nail fungus is caused by a fungal infection. Sometimes yeast also causes similar problem. If you can stop this fungus reaching the insides of your nails, you have won the war against the nail fungus. How to do that? The fungus is mostly found in places, which are frequented by people mostly in barefoot. Locker rooms, poolsides etc. are such places. If you want to protect yourself fully, apply an OTC antifungal medication on your toes and then walk out in a footwear. Or apply the medication immediately after returning from such places.
Nail Fungus- athlete’s feet
When you develop athlete’s feet, you have got infection very near your nails. If you don't treat the athlete’s feet immediately, the fungus will find way to enter your nails. Once the fungus enters the nail, it will spread fast.
Nail fungus- treatment-
Treating nail fungus is always a long drawn process. Nail being thick, application of any medicine on it, does not ensure that the medicine will reach the insides of the nails. Oral anti fungals also have difficulty treating nail fungus. Be patient and apply your medication regularly. Avoid using the clipper on healthy nails after clipping the infected nail. Avoid getting pedicures done at salons. Otherwise inquire if they keep their clippers sterilized. Think and implement basic precautions and keep your nail healthy and good looking.
