Some people believe that it is impossible to get rid of fungus nails. But, I have helped several clients to successfully rid themselves of this unpleasant and annoying disorder. Now they can wear open sandals in the summer months! But……only people who came on regular base for the special anti- fungus treatment and took their responsibility 100 %. Self-discipline is an important condition to succeed !
HOW DO FUNGUS NAILS DEVELOP?
Fungal infections are something you see frequently. The nails become thick and crumbly and often their colour is yellow or/and white. Ram’s-horn nails (or its scientific name – Onychogryphosis) is a kind of nail fungus that often changes into a true nail-trauma. This is often the result of nail -negligence but the good news is that there is a solution. The chances of developing nail fungus increases with age. People who suffer from diabetes are a high risk group for developing fungus nails, as well as people whose resistance is low.
HOW DO WE COME IN CONTACT WITH FOOT FUNGI AND THE CONSEQUENCES
Fungus nails cause pain and create trouble with walking, hard skin in cuticles, and even ingrown toe nails, and a needless sense of shame. In our country we may be particularly aware of this problem since so many people wear sandals during the summer months and their feet are exposed. Foot fungi spring forth like mushrooms after the rain. Fungi exist everywhere in our environment. We come in contact with them particularly in communal rooms like showers, swimming pools, saunas, gyms and even in hospitals or fitting rooms in shops!
It is highly recommended (!!) to wear flip flops at these places and dry our feet and toes very thoroughly.
Later on I will explain how to prevent fungus. First I will explain what the Chiropodist can do for you when you have already been infected with a fungus
IS THERE AN EFFECTIVE TREATMENT AGAINST NAIL FUNGUS?
Yes, your Chiropodist will provide you with a special treatment for nail fungus. This means special filing of the nails combined with an effective product. The only condition for achieving successful treatment is to apply this product daily, visit your foot specialist on a regular basis, and a- great deal of…..patience. This special filing is the only way to remove fungus from your nails. After filing, the anti-mycose solution soaks into the nails more deeply.
By using a special appliance the top coat of your nail fungus will be removed and the anti-fungus product will deeply penetrate your nail and you will soon see the results!
THIS COMBINATION WORKS WONDERS!
So……in combination with a professional foot treatment provided by your Chiropodist or your Podiatrist every 6 weeks you will soon see results.
You will be pleased and very surprised once you see the results!
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
It is a myth that bad hygiene causes a fungus. What can you do to prevent fungus nails?
1) Use a special balm with anti-mycose ingredients. This will also enhance daily foot care.
2) Don’t use too much soap or shower gel and rinse off the remains of soap very carefully.
3) Disinfecting soap is NOT effective for preventing fungus.
4) Dry your feet thoroughly and make sure to dry well between your toes. Use a foot cream to raise your PH level.
5) Preferably wear woolen or cotton socks, if possible – seamless.
6) Wear appropriate leather shoes with good ventilation.
7) Change your shoes regularly.
8) Use body-lotion. This will restore your body’s protective film and will boost your resistance.
