Ways to Cure Nail Fungus

After being diagnosed with toenail fungus you need to know ways to cure nail fungus as the initial reaction is to get rid of it as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

The truth is that to cure nail fungus takes some time and application.

However, with diligent attention to detail, the right medical products to suit your condition and the realization that this will take some time.

You will cure this condition.

Toenail fungus is what it says it is.

A Fungus that lies within the folds of the nail.

This makes it notoriously difficult to get to with the medicine, cream or curing agent.

Therefore the curing agent needs to be sufficiently strong enough to get into the center of the toenail to cure the problem.

To enhance the effect of the curing agent and to speed up the cure it is wise to have the curing agent applied directly onto the fungus itself.

This can be done simply by using a nail file to remove the top layer of the nail and expose the nail fungus.

The fungus is generally yellowish in color, it will be slightly pungent and it will have made the nail appear a little like 'puff pastry'.

By that i mean it will have reacted with the layers of the nail, got inside each of the layers and lifted it or separated it from the other layers.

The fungus breeds in this way and spreads quite rapidly through the nail and onto other nails if it is left unchecked.

Curing Nail fungus using Laser

To cure nail fungus rapidly and without pain it is necessary to have the nail treated by Laser technology.

This is where a beam of light is focused on the infection.

The beam of light is omitted from a pen like instrument onto the fungus infected parts of the nail, moving the instrument slowly over all of the the infected parts of the toenail.

This should kill the fungus once and for all.

There is no immediate visual difference to the nail.

The old infected and damaged part of the nail has to grow out.

As the new toenail grows in, you will see clear, uninfected new nail growth.

The old damaged nail can be gradually cut off as you trim your toenails.

To cure nail fungus for good some lifestyle changes are needed.

This means eating a healthier diet and seeing that you are getting the right vitamins to support healthy growth of your nails.

Also, some preventative measures in the way of spraying the inside of your shoes with an anti fungal spray.

This will keep the fungus away and make your feet and shoes much more pleasant to the nose.

Treating Toenail fungus with Epsom salts

Epsom salts is not exactly salts but a pure mineral found naturally.

The Epsom salt minerals sulphate and magnesium, are readilly absorbed through the skin.

Sulphates help the body absorb nutrients while also flushing toxins.

Magnesium helps regulate enzymes and reduces inflammation.
