Podiatrists all around the world can tell you in detail about fungal nail infections and the difficulties that they bring. They are an incredibly common ailment that often requires further attention from a specialist. Our foot care experts are well versed in effective fungal nail treatment and can help you rid yourself of what can be a painful and embarrassing issue. Below are three facts you need to know about your fungal nail infection.
They May Not Be Treatable ‘Over the Counter’
One of the main issues you can often face when attempting your own fungal nail treatment is the location of the infection. The origin point of the issue can frequently be found under the nail, an area which can be impenetrable with standard fungicide creams, tablets and nail paints. Our nails are designed to be sturdy and durable, but this unfortunately means our toenails provide a secure and shielded environment for the nail fungus to flourish.
Fungus Loves Warmth
The warm, dark and humid conditions that your feet live in when wearing shoes, slippers or even socks, is an ideal habitat for fungus. Much like athlete’s foot, which can evolve into a nail infection, the situation is often made worse through the regular use of protective footwear.
