Treatment of common nail toe problems
The most ordinary foot health problem of our age is fungus. Fungus is a long-lasting sickness, which can appear on both our hands and feet. Toe nails are infected the most often, since they are not in from of our eyes as much as our hands to pay enough attention to.
The medical treatment of toe nail fungus may last from about 9 months to more than a year, and it requires a lot of money and patience. The most effective way of treatment is the pill, but unfortunately it damages the liver a lot.
Why and how can fungus develop?
Toe nail fungus can originate from a toe nail that has been cut too deeply, tight shoes which press against the nail, or even if someone tramples on our feet or we hit our nails.
The structure of the nail injures, and through this injury fungus infection can attack our nails easily, since at busy places – swimming pool, sauna, gym – fungus are frequently present.
To prevent fungus pay attention to the followings:
Do not cut your hand and toe nails too deep, because infection can find its way more easily beneath nails. Do not wear too tight shoes, because besides the easier vulnerability of nails the shoes squeeze the toes, resulting deformity. Look out for not dropping anything on your feet and do not hit them to anything!
Should I go to a dermatologist or not?
If we could not avoid the fungus infection, it is a must to visit a medical specialist. Why? If the infection is in an early stage, in better case we get nail varnish, and though this treatment also needs a lot of time, it does not exhaust our body.
However, if we do not get the fungus treated immediately, the only resolution is drastic medical intervention, which damages our liver. A pedicurist cannot prescribe medical fungal treatment, only doctors can.
Important: it is not enough to treat the fungal toe nails for one or two days. They must be treated continuously every day at the same time, even for a whole year in order to get rid of fungus.
How to treat fungus at home besides medicine?
Once a week soak your feet in water with 20% vinegar – you can even mash garlic in it – for about 30 minutes, and rub the infected area with cotton pad.
Tip: Sterilize your shoes as well. Put cotton pad soaked in formaldehyde (can be bought in pharmacies) in the toecap of your shoes.
