Unfortunately, anyone can catch mycosis or nail fungus. Therapy can be delayed for a long time, which also causes some discomfort. Sometimes it happens that only the symptoms disappear, and when treatment is stopped, the problem resumes with renewed vigor.
Common symptoms in the presence of the disease:
- Redness and constant itching at the site of the infection.
- Change the color of the nail plate.
- Lamination and brittleness of nails.
- Feeling of discomfort when walking if the fungus is present on the lower extremities.
To eliminate the problem, it is necessary to start immediately after the first symptoms appear.
Often used not only external, but also oral pharmacological agents:
- A cream or ointment is rubbed into the infected areas after soaking.
- Medicinal nail polish is applied directly to damaged areas and adjacent skin.
Antifungal drugs are taken by mouth and used only as a last resort. These drugs often cause unwanted effects.
When conducting therapy, you need to follow some recommendations to get the maximum benefit:
Use the medicines prescribed by the doctor with the specified regularity.
Before application, the infected nail must be carefully removed. The used nail file must be disposable or disinfected after each use.
The drug should be applied not only to the site affected by the fungus, but also to adjacent areas.
Therapy continues until the symptoms are eliminated and until a healthy and clean nail plate is fully grown.
It is better to approach the elimination of a fungal infection in a complex manner. For a better result, you can add to the main therapy the use of products containing a natural composition. The absence of chemical elements is a huge advantage when choosing care products. Before using any product, be sure to read the instructions.If there is no effect or the condition worsens, discontinue use and contact a qualified specialist.
