And it's a shame to wear sandals, and it hurts to pass, and the smell is not amber. . . Then the fungus infected the nails. . . For the love of feet with those nails, it's not that they don't shoot or fight, they just shy away from them. Nail fungus on the hands should be treated much less often - the conditions for it are not the same. Toenails, often hidden in shoes, are the ideal mycelium: warm, moist and dark. Here, half of the people on Earth suffer from nails, as in the early stages it is difficult to visually perceive the fungus, and then it is already necessary to look for an effective remedy for the fungus, and to cure legs and nails for a long time. And people have suffered from this disease since ancient times: even the ancient Greeks called the infection "onymycosis", which translates as "nail fungus".
signs of illness
Some symptoms indicate whether nail fungus has appeared or not. Here are the ones that are hard to miss:
- the nails thicken, it is the keratinization of the nail bed (this is how the body resists the fungus), which, by the way, interferes a lot in the treatment;
- they thicken, become brittle and brittle;
- its shape becomes ugly, the edges are jagged;
- the nails darken, the shine disappears;
- when cleaning the nails, a bad smell is clearly audible.
Where can you get infected?
And where conditions are right for them. Someone else's bath (remember, hot and humid), bathroom or locker room, where both the heat and humidity are excessive, and in addition, at least for a while, the person is barefoot. And why are the slippers offered to the guest by the owner harmful to the transmission of this infection? But in order not to scratch your head afterwards, thinking about how to cure nail fungus, the most elementary care is needed. It is not difficult to make the bath hygienically clean, use personal slippers in the bathroom, shower and dressing room. Well then, in order not to get infected with the fungus through a nail file or other manicure or pedicure accessory, the eternal rule must be observed - don't touch anyone!
See a doctor immediately!
Although there are many effective folk remedies for nail fungus, it is imperative to consult a doctor. There are at least two reasons for this. The first is that the fungus can be of different types, and the treatment of varieties requires drugs of different composition. The second reason is that often nail fungus disease is a continuation of foot fungus disease. And here there is this danger: the fungus itself between the fingers can easily be mistaken for a trophic ulcer (the result of an arterial blockage). Treatment of ulcers with antifungal agents can cause burns and enlargement of the ulcer area, which already heal badly due to a lack of oxygen in the tissues. Therefore, it is the doctor who will specifically and correctly advise on how to treat nail fungus. The drug treatment is done with special solutions and varnishes, there are also drugs taken orally. In cases of very advanced infection, they even resort to removing the nail plate (somewhat painful, but it grows back quickly). You have to be patient and then take good care of the new nail.
