Learn How to Control Fungus

The problem with most fungus skin medications is that they work only when applied. As soon as the medication is stopped, the fungus returns to the skin.  Furthermore, most of the medications dry the skin and can cause crackina, peeling and pain.  Finally, they are very strong and can only be used for short periods of time.

Onychomycosis: Causes, Symptoms, and Common Treatments of Nail Fungus

  
  
  
  
  

What is Onychomycosis?

Onychomycosis is a latin term for nail fungus.  It is a common term used by dermatologists and podiatrists to describe nail fungus infections seen in a clinical setting.  Onychomycosis is caused by many underlying causes.  Some of these are listed below.

Causes of Onychomycosis:

Onychomycosis severe nail fungus

  • Sweating
  • Poor hygiene
  • Skin fungus
  • Barefoot in common wet areas (pool, spa, showers)
  • Wearing the same socks multiple days
  • Family History of Fungal Infections

5 Symptoms of Onychomycosis:

Onychomycosis Nail Fungus mild

  1. Yellow brittle changes to the nails
  2. Thickness of the nails
  3. Lifted nail from the nail bed
  4. Possible skin redness
  5. Possible itching and rash of the skin

The underlying cause of onychomycosis or nail fungus is an infection of the nail matrix or nail root.  This causes the nail to grow out with the fungus incorporated in the nail as it grows.  In order to treat the fungus in the nail, the matrix needs to be cleared of the fungus.  Once the matrix is cleared up, the nail begins to grow out clear from the root towards the end of the toe. It is also important to treat the skin for skin fungus, also known as tinea pedis.  This will prevent cross infection of the nail to skin and visa versa.

Common Treatments for Onychomycosis Include:

Fungus nail pill

Fungus nail laser

Fungus nail lacquer

Combination Therapy

Our suggestion is to try and prevent nail fungus with the PediMD Anti-fungal Skin and Nail Treatment System.  If you have fungus of the nail that is mild, try using the PEDIMD nail lacquer to treat the nail and also prevent further infection.

If you have severe fungus, you may want to consider using a combination therapy of nail laser and the PediMD anti-fungal treatment system in order to treat the fungus more aggressively and also prevent the fungus from returning. 

Remember it is essential to continue to treat the fungus and protect the nail after any form of treatment to prevent re-infection.
