Some of the Tips to Avoid Toenail Fungus: Easy To Catch, Hard To Kill

As mentioned above, many people suffer from nail fungus (especially in toes). The toe nail fungus is easy to notice and it is very hard to get full infection cleaned. Toe nail fungus usually grows in between your toe nails and the skin of your toe. One of the main reasons of nail fungus is humidity and poor hygiene. People who live in humid or moisture regions are more affected by toe nail fungus.

One of the main reasons why it is avoided till it gets to the worse condition is that the toe or the feet in general is not given much attention as the rest of the body. The first stage of toe nail fungus is yellowing or whitening of the fingernail.

In later stages, the toe nail becomes very thick and starts to crumble from the sides. The reason it becomes hard is because the fungus feeds on the keratin. When the keratin levels drop in your toe nail, it loses its nutrition level and as a result, it becomes thick and later starts to crumble from the edges.

It is very important to get a toenail fungus treatment once you notice the initial symptoms. If your toenail starts to hurt, then you should understand that it is a definite sign that your toe nail is infected with fungus. To be on the safer side here are some of the tips that you can follow to avoid toenail fungus. Some of them are mentioned below for your benefit:-

• If you have athlete’s foot, treat it as soon as possible.
• If you are using shared bathrooms, make sure you use shower shoes
• If you see any initial signs, get yourself checked. It is easier to treat a fungus in the earlier stages.
