That pedicure you shelled out big bucks for may have left you with an unwelcome gift: onychomycosis, otherwise known as nail fungus. Or maybe it's a souvenir from the shared showers at your gym or your barefoot walks around the public pool. And fungus is more likely to appear and persist in your toenails because your tootsies are often confined in the warm, moist environment of your shoes, where these little buggers can thrive. If you see a dermatologist , you'll most likely get a prescription for an antifungal oral medication such as Lamisil or Sporanox, which tend to be expensive, don't always work, and carry side effects ranging from skin rashes to potentially toxic liver damage. There are newer topical treatments, such as Kerydin, but they also require a prescription and can take up to a year to work.
Your weekend pedicure, post-workout shower at the gym, or barefoot walk around the public pool may have left you with an unwelcome gift: onychomycosis, otherwise known as nail fungus. Although it starts innocuously enough as a white or yellow spot underneath your finger or toenail, a fungal infection can cause the area to thicken and even crumble as it penetrates deeper and deeper. The thing is, there are a lot of so-called natural remedies for toenail fungus out there—and not all of them actually work. Here's everything you need to know about how toenail fungus develops, plus the effective treatments that get rid of it ASAP. Toenail fungus happens when tiny microscopic organisms called fungi get underneath your toenails, causing an infection, according the American Academy of Dermatology AAD. Toenail fungus is highly contagious and, if you have a fungal infection on your foot, the fungus can spread to one or more of your nails.
The most noticeable symptom is a white, brown, or yellow discoloration of one or more of your toenails. It may spread and cause the nails to thicken or crack. Luckily there are many treatments you can try. Prescription oral antifungals such as terbinafine Lamisil or fluconazole Diflucan are traditionally used to treat toenail fungus. These treatments are often effective, but they may cause serious side effects ranging from upset stomach and dizziness to severe skin problems and jaundice. This may be why many people try home remedies instead.
Toenail fungus onychomycosis is caused by a group of fungi known as dermophytes. This group thrives on skin and on keratin, the main component of hair and nails. The fungus gets under the nail and begins to grow, damaging the nail so it discolors, becoming white, brown, or yellow. Eventually, the nail might thicken, harden, become brittle, and even fall off. People with underlying health conditions like diabetes, circulatory issues, or immune-deficiency conditions are especially vulnerable, as are elderly people. This condition can be very difficult to cure.
If you have nail fungus but don't want to waste your time on ineffective home remedies, choose home treatments that are supported by research. Although these may take some time to work, you'll actually treat the fungus that's causing the nail infection. You can also ask your doctor about oral or topical medications if you're not seeing results with home remedies. Did You Know? In some cases, the doctor may want to stop the nail from growing back. Ask your doctor about their goals for surgery and recovery so you'll feel comfortable with the outcome. Tip: If you can, avoid wearing tight-fitting hosiery, such as pantyhose, tights, or compression socks, since these can trap moisture near the nails.
