Fungosem Avoiding nail fungus should be an automatic program in your mind. Something that in the end you don’t think about it, you just do it. Many of us have had no experience with this problem while we were growing up whatsoever, and those ugly ads with nasty fungus pictures didn’t help us all to learn proper prevention. I kind of blocked the nail fungus with its nasty images from my mind. That is until the problem came very close to me…
Another prevention technique is to limit your exposure to potential infection. This means wearing shoes in public places where others might unintentionally spread the fungus. Wear water shoes, sandals, or flip-flops around the public swimming pool and in locker rooms.
Fungus infection may result in the permanent damage of your nails and can affect the appearance of your fingers or toes. Moreover, this infection can lead to complications in people with diabetes, leukemia, AIDS, or poor immune system. It is not easy to treat nail fungal infections and it can recur again and again. There are some home remedies for nail fungus that have been proven to be effective to alleviate the symptoms of the infection. Mix vinegar and warm water in a ratio of 1:2 and soak your feet in this solution for about twenty minutes. Then thoroughly wash and dry your feet. Repeat this daily. Vinegar can also be used to remove fungus from your fingernails.
Home remedies are also part of the solution. Though I haven’t tried them myself, they include the use of bleach, vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, and some more things. There are also natural options that use essential oils and herbs to treat the nail fungus infection.
Keep the nail clean and dry at all times. Even though you are using the best medicines available, it will actually have little effects if you do not keep the area dry and clean. The bacteria will only like it more in the nails when they are dirty.
For this reason I think a good approach to take is to firstly try a number of natural nail fungus remedies to see if any are successful for you. Of course you should seek medical advice if you have a severe nail fungus condition, before deciding on an appropriate course of treatment.
Another one of the recommended home remedies for nail fungus is to make a mixture of two drops of Oregano oil and one teaspoon of olive oil and apply some drops of this oil blend to your infected nails once a day. Oregano oil contains antifungal properties and so has the potential to cure nail fungus. Tea tree oil is also an effective natural antifungal agent. Rubbing tea tree oil on your nails can help you get rid of your nail fungus.
