A Toenail Fungal Infection is More Than Just a Cosmetic Problem
Do you have ugly yellow toenails that you ignore by covering them up?
If you have signs of a toenail fungal infection it’s easy to just shrug it off as a cosmetic problem that you’ve decided you just have to live with. Maybe it’s even become a way of life for you and you deal with the fungus by always keeping your toenails painted or always wearing closed toed shoes. If you’ve become accustomed to the idea of having a toenail fungal infection and have convinced yourself that it is in fact just a cosmetic problem, keep reading to learn the facts about toenail fungus and your treatment options.
Signs of a Toenail Fungal Infection
It can be easy to think of a toenail fungal infection as just a cosmetic problem, however it’s more than just yellow toenails. Although discolouration is a key sign, your toenails could also become thick and misshapened with grooves and ridges. These irregularities could also cause the nail to separate from the nail bed which can be very painful.
More Than Just Cosmetic
Toenail fungal infections tend to progress slowly, but this depends on the overall quality of your health and the type of environment you live in. If you have a condition such as poor circulation or diabetes this can interfere with the infection. Toenail fungus also likes to live in humid, moist environments.
A toenail fungal infection is rarely hazardous to your health. The common issue for most people is their quality of life. Many people are so embarrassed by their fungal nails that they avoid activities with others that require them to show their bare feet and they also worry about treatment. Even though toenail fungus affects an estimated 5 million people according to The National Health Service, many aren’t aware of the treatment options available.
There are conventional treatment options to try such as topical and oral medications, however these don’t have a high success rate and some oral medicines carry the risk of side effects such as liver damage. They also may not kill the toenail fungal infection completely.
