Wellness and health toenails mycosis remedies and cures nails thick and ingiallite.La typical nail disease, especially of the feet, is infection by a fungus (fungus) that attacks one or more of them. It is easily recognized as it is manifested by a yellowish or whitish below the tip of the unghiee spreading, makes them until they thicken then crumble away from the sides. As the infection continues to spread if it is not specifically treated, you should contact your doctor as soon as you notice the small spot below the top of the nails, in order to intervene as soon as possible. Identify the infection and the cause of it, is crucial to decide which is the most effective therapy to your specific case; specialists to consult are the podiatrists and dermatologists.
Be careful then, if you see that your nails become thicker than normal, if they are opaque (not shiny), brittle, fragile and uneven (dark precisely because of the fragments that accumulate below) and if you have deformations, as these are the typical symptoms of the disease.
The cause of mycosis:
The case is precisely the proliferation of fungi (group of dermatophytes, yeasts and molds) that live in warm, moist environments (showers and swimming pools) and can penetrate the skin through small cuts or even, in that there may be slight separation between the ‘ nail and its nail bed. They spread then only if the same nails are continually exposed to heat and humidity: it is for this reason that the foot mycosis occur most often confined in shoes in the dark, hot and humid and with a circulation less than the hands (then the action of the immune system to fight infection and elimination is more difficult).
The disease is therefore also more common in the elderly, who have naturally thicker and nails grow more slowly in men and those who possess certain characteristics such as: excessive sweating, psoriasis, athlete’s foot, other injury or infection to the skin or nails existing diabetes, circulatory problems, problems with immune system or undertake risky behaviors for this purpose (doing work in a damp environment, do not use socks and shoes breathable and non-absorbent sweat, walk barefoot in damp areas).
