Prodentim Thousands of people suffer from toenail fungus. Nobody really knows why some people get it and others don’t. Some doctors believe that you are more likely to get it if you exercise and fail to air your feet off afterwards. It is a very stubborn thing to tackle but there are some toe nail fungus cures available to try.
The doctor will have to examine a sample from the nail to determine if a person is indeed suffering from a nail fungus. The specimen will be put under a Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) test. This test is an accurate procedure to test for skin diseases like nail infection. The nail sample and a drop of KOH will be mix together in a slide. The slide will be heated for a short time. When the KOH separates the fungus from the nail, it can be seen under the microscope.
What you must understand with these home remedies for nail fungus, along with all fungus cures, is that they take time. You should apply the cure until the entire nail is free of fungus. Because the fungus grows deep in the nail bed, the time it takes for your nail to grown out is how long you should use any cure.
Treatment Solutions – A good choice would be to try out a topical solution. This type of treatment produces more effective results when compared to creams and lotions, and it also produces no side effects as opposed to some prescription medications. It is made of all natural oils, so you can be sure that what you are using is safe. Among the treatments, the best choice would be to choose one that contains tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is known to have antibacterial and antifungal properties that could provide a quick cure for nail fungus and help clear up an infection caused by bacteria as well.
Another thing which falls into the category of fungus treatments, especially if the problem is minor, is Loceryl. This formula comes with a set of emery boards. The idea is that you file away as much of the fungus as you can before cleaning nails with the alcohol wipes provided, then applying the treatment. Initially, you should repeat this process three times a week for a couple of months and then gradually reduce the treatment until you are satisfied with the results. Patients testing this treatment were seen to have reasonable results, but unfortunately the fungus was seen to return in a high percentage of cases.
I tried Nonyx after reading some glowing reviews. I filed my nails thin and applied this stuff for a few days. It is very hard to make sure that you don’t get Nonyx on your skin around the nails. My skin around the nails started burning, itching and turning red. This stuff is ethanoic acid and it burned my skin around the nails. I kept on using it while being extremely careful not to allow Nonyx to touch the skin around the nail. After a few more days, it started to burn the skin UNDER the nails. So I quit using this harsh stuff.
With those reason, it is clear to see that treating your infection is crucial for your health. Search for more information online for great home remedies, natural remedies or over the counter medicine. However, always consult with your doctor to make sure you are taking the right steps towards restoring and having the healthy nails you deserve.
