Nail fungus can grow underneath or around your nails. While you can get nail fungus on both your fingernails and toenails, it is more common on the toes. The fungus often thrives underneath the nails, since it is protected by them. Since this space underneath the nails is moist and dark, providing conditions under which fungus thrives, it can be very difficult to eliminate nail fungus.
Thankfully, new laser treatments at Aesthetic Solutions
Can get rid of nail fungus fairly easily.
Not taking adequate care of your feet can be a quick invitation for toe fungus to make itself at home, causing discolored nails, brittle nail composition as well as other issues, depending on the type of fungus Toe fungus is part of the dermatophytes. This means that they love damp warm environments. Showers, swimming pools and locker rooms can be havens for the fungus.
All the fungus needs is a small cut or skin opening to take hold, multiply, and grow. It can inhabit the small area between your nail and your nail bed. Since most shoes do not have an adequate amount of airflow, the fungus can easily continue to thrive once it takes up residence on your feet.
Fungus can occur on both the toes and the fingers. However, fungus tends to thrive better on the toenails because less blood flows to your toes than to your fingers, and reduced blood flow means decreased ability for the body to detect infection and fight!
There are factors that increase your risk of developing toe fungus. Wearing shoes or socks that do not promote ventilation can contribute to a fungal infection. Also, walking in moist or damp environments without shoes or at least sandals can contribute to fungal infections. This is especially true in public areas, such as locker rooms or public showers.
If left untreated, toe fungus can cause permanent damage to your toe nails. It can also invite other types of more serious infections that may cause serious health issues.
In the past, toe fungal infections that do not respond to oral and topical medications often require more drastic procedures, such as phenol or surgical removal.
