Getting Rid of Nail Fungus

By Anna Latrobe

Nail Fungus is an unpleasant condition to cope with, especially considering that it can effect your nails on your toes and your fingers. The condition is caught by the fungi getting underneath your nail bed through a small crack or cut in the skin close to your nails.

Once you have caught the fungi the nail starts to discolor, the shine of the nail disappears and the surface becomes rough, the edges of your nail start to crumble and eventually the nail loosens from the nail bed.

However there are various ways in that you can treat nail fungus. It is vital to treat it as soon as you are aware that you have this condition because when it is left untreated, it will start to worsen and spread as the fungus feeds of your skin and nails.

Some people may think that the easiest way to get rid of nail fungus is by completely removing the nail, however this may offer short term relief but when the nail grows back the infection will reemerge. Ideally you need to find a way to treat it that is effective and fast because you do not want to risk other people contracting it and it spreading to other parts of your body.

Remedies for nail fungus can be oral medications, or topical ointments, even though these may successfully treat fungus they can take from 6 to 12 weeks to work.

A physician may suggest that you get rid of the infected nail, or for several people they might advise you to use a sort of laser treatment called photodynamic therapy.

Though these treatments may be successful they frequently do not kill the fungus, rather they treat the symptoms and in some instances may have bad side effects. As a result you ideally need to be using a natural product that works from the inside out, and kills the fungus, by increasing your natural anti-inflammatory and infection fighting capabilities, in order that you can fight the nail fungus without experiencing unpleasant side effects.

Treating Nail fungus can be done naturally in order to avoid any damaging side effects. Using natural oils that have healing properties, such as Tea Tree oil, is a great to treat nail fungus and when used with other natural ingredients allows you to fight nail fungus without conventional medication. - 30540
