Fungal infections are one of the most common causes of nail damage. However, not only fungus can affect nails! With psoriasis, anemia, vitamin deficiency, nail damage can also often be observed. Very often, nails are affected by hair diseases. It is extremely easy to "catch" the fungus - in the shower, swimming pool, sauna, when using someone else's shoes, through manicure accessories, but it is extremely difficult to get rid of it.
Onychomycosis (fungal infection of the nail) most often affects people with weakened immunity and older people. Frequent trauma to the nails, for example, when wearing tight shoes, creates comfortable conditions for the reproduction of the fungus. Most people do not pay attention to onychomycosis and allow it to spread to other nails, from hands to feet and vice versa. It is hard to even imagine how strong this fungus is, which destroys hard nails. And what to think about the rest of the human organs, especially the kidneys, which, filtering the liquid in the body, constantly collect these fungi on themselves? Treatment of onychomycosis is a rather long process. In cases where 1 or 2 nails are affected by onychomycosis, it is necessary to fight it with local drugs (antifungal creams, ointments and modern varnishes).
In severe lesions, treatment should include systemic antifungal tablets. Local and systemic treatment is carried out for at least several months, and in severe onychomycosis, sometimes for several years. For faster recovery of the nail after onychomycosis, the body needs special vitamins that accelerate the growth of a healthy nail. Therefore, it is necessary to start the treatment of onychomycosis in the early stages. In each case, our doctors will prescribe an individual treatment that will include the specifics of your clinical condition.
