Apr 29, 2018 Fungal Nail Infection
A fungal nail infection on the toe is easy to hide so we only worry about it when it is sandal season. For most people, a fungal nail infection results in crusty, thick and unsightly nails that are more of an inconvenience than a concern. We seem to think that an infection on our nails is nothing serious and merely an inconvenience. Many of us walk around with yucky toenails without considering the health implications. For many, the fungal nail infection remains the same not getting any worse or better. Some people find the damage to the nail starts to affect their walking and spreads to other nails. Others are not so lucky and the infection spreads to other parts of the body causing athlete's foot or ‘Jock Crotch’. It also infects skin causing cellulitis which causes the skin to swell up and requires antibiotics to treat it. People with diabetes, taking immunosuppressants, psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease or AIDs are more prone to fungal nail infection. Diabetics have to be particularly vigilant because extreme cases may result in gangrene and ultimately amputation. People with these conditions must visit their doctor regularly to monitor their nails.
