Stop Athlete's Foot Fungus From Returning

  
  
  
  
  

40 Million Americans suffer from Athlete's Foot Fungus every year and around half of them will successfully treat the fungal infection, only to have it return within a couple months. 25% of individuals who suffer from Athlete's Foot Fungus have a systematic condition. This means that they must continually protect their feet from fungus breakouts and from Athlete's Foot Fungus From Returning or they will perpetually suffer the effects of fungus such as: peeling skin under toes, itchy feet, and thick, cracking heels. 

Preventing Athlete's Foot and Foot Fungus from returning is an on-going battle.

There are many treatments designed to eliminate Athlete's Foot. The most prominent ones are Anti-Fungal Creams and Sprays. Unlike the treatment of Toenail Fungus, Athlete's Foot Fungus treatments are actually highly effective at eliminating fungus on the skin. 

Systematic foot fungus sufferers need to use an anti-fungal agent at least three times a week in order to stop the Athlete's Foot Fungus From returning. For people who suffer from a systematic condition or are worried about contracting another fungal infection widely distributed creams such as Lamisil and Lotromin can have some adverse side effects. Frequent use of creams such as Lamisil and Lotromin can dry out and even irritate the skin. It is essential that if one were to use these treatments on a regular basis in order to prevent future fungal infections that they pair them with another moisturizing foot cream. 

It is also not recommended to use Lamisil and Lotromin anti-fungal cream's when one does not show any signs of fungus; even if one has had a fungal infection in the past and the feet are still susceptible to contracting another fungal condition. For this very reason PediMD engineered a Moisturizing Foot Cream that has anit-fungal properties and is designed for everyday use.

Toenail Fungus Treatments: Including Sporanox and Lamisil Reviews

  
  
  
  
  

Fungaled toenails, or onychomycosis, can be unsightly and lead to ingrown toenails due to increased nail thickness, cracking and peelng skin. In general, doctors tend to stay away from prescribing  oral anti-fungal medicine, such as Sporanox and lamisil anti-fungal pills, due to their negative side-effects on the liver.

IOnychomycosis2t can take up to a year to notice a considerable difference with any treatment. For those of you willing to undertake the task of attacking toenail fungus, here are your weapons.

What kills fungus?

Air, vinegar, bleach, tea tree oil, and dryness are a few of the weapons we can easily combine to kill fungus. Fungus lives in moist areas such as sweaty socks, shower stalls and shoe linings. Fungus thrives in an anaerobic (oxygen deprived) environment under the nail called the Nail Matrix. Treating the Nail Matrix will eliminate the source of the fungus and eventually allow a new healthy nail to grow out.

Tactics to Eliminate Toenail Fungus

AIR: 

Get as much air under the nails by cutting the nails as short as possible, gently cleaning the debri under the nails, using an emery board weekly to file the top of the nails, and avoiding toe nail polish as much as possible (quickly remove when not needed).

VINEGAR:

Soak your feet in white vinegar 30 minutes twice weekly using a 1 part warm water to 1 part white vinegar ratio. 

BLEACH: 

Disinfect your shower weekly with bleach (ie Lysol).

TEA TREE OIL:

Apply daily tea tree oil twenty minutes before you go to bed to each affected nail. It must dry well before getting under the sheets. 

DRYNESS:

Air out your shoes weekly that you use regularly by removing the shoe inserts, applying foot powder under and on top of any insert, and rubbing at the top of the toebox where you imagine the toenails rub.

PATIENCE:

One problem we have conquering toenail fungus is time. It takes over one year for the toenail to completely grow out twice. There is a general rule that it takes not one, but two of these growth spurts to push the unsightly debri of the killed fungus out from under the nail bed

If you decide to use oral anti-fungal pills, it is recommended to use pulsed Sporanox. It is the safest on the market. The treatment consists of taking Sporanox Pills for 7 days each month for 6 months. You still have to do the topical treatments as mentioned above. At present, the pulsed Sporonox does not need liver testing as part of the treatment, but your prescribing doctor may feel safer doing that. Golden Rule of Foot: Always err on the side of caution.
