Q&A: Funky Fungus 911


What causes fungal infection in nail beds? What can you do if you have an infection?



What is it? 

The nails of our fingers and toes are tremendously effective barriers. This barrier makes it quite difficult for a superficial infection to invade the nail. Once an infection has set up residence, the same barrier that was so effective in protecting us against infection now works against us, making it difficult to treat the infection.

Fungus rarely invades an intact nail. Usually there is some kind of trauma. Prolonged wetness can also allow the barrier to be breached. Sometimes a prolonged athlete's foot condition can even breach an intact nail. Usually it is some combination of these methods. Fungal infections can also be a problem for people wearing acrylic nails. This happens because the fungus becomes trapped next to the natural nail in a warm, dark, moist environment for a prolonged period of time. Long-term bandages over the nails can have the same effect.

Fungal nails usually begin with an opaque white or silvery area at the distal (outside) edge of a nail. The fungus gradually works its way inward. As the fungus grows, the nail thickens and can become quite painful.

Treatment

A promising solution, a natural remedy called Tea Tree Oil. It is a naturally occurring anti-fungal compound that can penetrate the nails. We also suggest Varsari Formula.  This treatment contains Tolnaftate, a highly effective medication that is widely recommended by doctors for the treatment and prevention of fungus and mold.
