How to Get Rid of Toe & Finger Nail FungusWritten by Balaji B
A fungal infection of toe or finger nails often results from a chronic athleteís foot infection in our youthful years. This is also known as Onychomycosis. The toenail infection is not so easily eliminated and often continues as a seemingly perpetual problem. Nail fungus is made up of tiny organisms which is also known as Tinea Unguium or Onychomycosis. This infects fingernails and toenails. The fungus lives under nail. The nail provides a safe place for fungus growth as fungus likes dark and wet places.
A fungal infection in nail is one of most difficult nail conditions to cure. Its symptoms are thickening and discoloration of nail. Some times, nail may crumble. The first sign of a fungal infection of nail is a change in colour. The nail often becomes yellow then brown. It gets thicker and develops a bad odor. Debris may collect beneath nail and white marks frequently appear on nail. The infection can spread to other nails. Toenails are affected more frequently than finger nails.
We should keep cutting nail back and clean dead tissue from under nail thoroughly. There may be little nail left. When new nail grows, let it grow. We must continue treatment until nail is completely re-grown. Since toenails grow so slowly, complete process will take a year or more. Lactobacilli taken internally is a beneficial bacteria needed to inhibit bad bacteria and fungus. The lack of sufficient friendly bacteria in body can result in growth of fungus under and around nails.
