What do we need to know about toenail fungus infection?


 
Health
If you struggled with toenail fungus infection before or know someone who has, you understand why we chose this topic for our article. Being such a vast subject that affects so many people, it got to our attention that our readers want to know more about this stubborn infection that becomes the nightmare of so many Americans.

But the question is, what is reality and what is a myth about this infection?

  1. It doesn’t occur in young people
Wrong. Although the truth is that it occurs far more often in the elderly, the statistics are showing that 20% of people over 60 struggle with toenail fungus infection and the numbers go as high as 50% in people over 70.
  1. It’s contagious
Basically yes, but not so much. Meaning, if you share socks or shoes with a friend of yours who already has the fungus, chances are you’re going to get it as well.

If you walk barefoot in a public space, like a pool, where you can’t be sure of the cleanness of the floor, you might get it.

But in order to contact it from another being, more intimate contact is needed, just grabbing lunch with a friend who has it is not enough for the infection to spread.

  1. Hygiene is essential
Yes, hygiene plays an important role in preventing the fungus from appearing in the first place. Take care of your footwear, disinfect it often, and pay attention to your socks so that your feet don’t stay damp for long, trim your nails and use saloons that are trustworthy.
  1. There are warning signs
Yes there are early symptoms which you can spot if you know your feet and pay attention to them. For instance, you can notice a yellow color appearing on your toenails, and if the infection evolves further changes of shape and odor appear.

If left untreated for a long period of time, worse symptoms can appear which then lead to far more serious complications.

  1. It takes time to be treated
Unfortunately this is so very true. Toenail fungus is a very stubborn infection that seldom chooses to go away on its own. In case home remedies don’t prove to be efficient, contact your doctor so that he can lead further investigations and recommend the best treatment.

Most of the cases drug medication is used because it treats the infection fast, however a holistic approach might prove to be just as useful (it’s just that the period of healing is longer). In extreme situations the doctor might even suggest surgery for the removal of the infected nail.

As a conclusion, you can see that toenail fungus infection is a serious matter and cannot be treated lightly. Ignoring the infection will only make matters worse. Instead try learning more about what it really is, how it can be prevented and what treatments are out there!
