Nail mycosis, or onychomycosis, affects the normal life of many people. It is an infection that can manifest itself under the nails of the feet or hands. Untreated, it can be passed on to the rest of the family and other people. But there are solutions to get rid of them and protect yourself against these infections.
Where does this infection come from?
Nail fungus is caused, in most cases, by a particular group of fungi, called dermatophytes. These fungi are microscopic organisms that have the particularity of not needing sunlight to develop, preferring environments that are both warm and humid. Mycosis therefore more frequently affects the toenails than the hands since the toes are often confined to a warm and humid environment.
Fungal infections can be treated in two different ways: locally using creams or varnishes, or oral treatment, in the form of tablets. Your doctor will prescribe the most appropriate treatment depending on the case of mycosis presented.
Toenail fungus doesn’t usually cause serious long-term problems if treated correctly. On the other hand, in people with diabetes or people with a weakened immune system, the infection will be more difficult to fight and complications may occur.
If you notice abnormal changes in your nails, it is very important to consult your doctor as soon as possible, so that a sample can be taken and the mycosis can be taken care of as soon as possible!
