Thick Toenails, how to get rid of toenail fungus

 

Thick toenails are often assumed to be caused by the growth of fungus under the toenails and in the toenail itself. In many cases, this assumption is correct, however there are other things that will make a toenail thick and distorted – injury to the root of the nail can do it temporarily, while severe or repeated injury can permanently distort a nail. People who engage in sports such as soccer can experience this kind of damage.

Skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema will distort a nail as well if the area around the nail is affected. This is because nails are really made up of dead skin tat have been stacked together very tightly. Just as the skin becomes inflamed and irritated by a skin condition, the tissues around the root of the nail where the nail is produced become inflamed and this can be the cause of thick toenails. And there are several ways of getting rid of toenail fungus.

If the problem is being caused by a fungus, other signs are usually present. Before thick toenails developed, there was probably some yellowish or brownish discoloration of otherwise health looking nail. Toenail Falling Off: The nail may have begun to separate from the bed and the discolorations and separation may have moved gradually from the nail tip toward the root. A fungus, growing in the nail bed and gradually sending out hyphae into the substance of the nail causes these typical signs of fungal infections and is often the cause of thick toenails.

Regardless of what is causing the problem, this problem can be reduced somewhat by careful filing and trimming. A nail file or emery board used against the upper surface of the nail will wear way some f the nail material. This is a good approach  for both cosmetic and health reasons: the nail will look better, feel more comfortable in a shoe, and, if fungus turns out to be the cause of thick nails, it will be easier to treat if the nail is thinner.

 Toenail fungus treatment or fungal infections on nails are often not very effective because they don’t sock into thick toenails very well. The challenge is to get the nail as thin as possible and then apply a preparation that has superior ability to penetrate down through the layers and contact the fungus killing the toenail fungus. Over the counter pharmaceutical preparations often promise cure for toenail fungus but usually are well known to be relatively ineffective when fungus is the cause of toenails falling off of nail fungus, however, some commercially available natural essential oils and other topical products have been found to have better penetration qualities.
These include Tea tree catechins and oil and other essential oils present in Oxyfend Fungus. These and other natural remedies may be the home cures for fungal nails infection.

"Doctors have never been able to caution patients with certainty that toenail fungus or athlete's foot can spread from one family member to another," says researcher Mahmoud Ghannoum, Ph.D., of University Hospitals Case Medical Center, in a news release. "What we can see from the current findings is the value of treating toenail fungus and athlete's foot to try to prevent its spread from person to person."


Not only is toe fungus ugly and embarrassing, it's also easy to catch, as it thrives in wet environments such as nail salons and locker rooms. And people will do just about anything to hide it. Podiatrist Paul Greenberg said he has female patients who say their husbands haven't seen their feet in 25 years.


Take a good look at your feet, especially your toenails. Are they brittle and/or thickened, discolored? Are they foul-smelling? If the answer is yes, there's a chance you might have a fungal infection in your foot.

Fungus breeds in hot, moist areas — and with sandal season in full swing, it's time to talk about the prevention and treatment of foot and toenail fungus.
