Surefire Ways On Toenail Fungus Prevention

By Abel Petalcu

You don’t want to develop toenail fungus. Not only will it make your toenails ugly, it’s also painful. While it’s treatable, it’s better not to get it in the first place. Here is how to prevent this.

First, any fungus including toenail fungus thrives where it is dark, warm, and damp. Toenails get infected with fungus much more often than do fingernails because we so often wear shoes and socks.

When you are wearing a sock, your toenails are in the perfect environment for fungus to grow. Your feet are warm and there is no light, plus your feet will sweat. Toenail fungus is a natural consequence of this setup.

If it turns out that you do have this sort of fungus, there are a few things you can do. First always be sure your feet are kept clean and dry. Cotton socks are best, because they breathe and absorb moisture. This reduces the dampness your toenails are exposed to.

Soaking your feet in vinegar will also help. Pure vinegar is too strong though. Mix the vinegar 1:1 with water, to avoid harming your feet. The acid in the vinegar is strong enough to kill the fungi that attack your toenails. If you do this every day it can help your toenails to recover.

Anti-fungus products are also often very helpful. These products kill fungi; they’re chemically designed to do so. They have active ingredients that fungi hate, and you can even find some made of natural ingredients.

Whenever possible, choose the anti-fungus products that are all natural. These won’t have any side effects. You can avoid side effects if you use the natural formulations.

Try these methods. They are inexpensive and easy. If they don’t work, you can take the next step and consult your physician. A doctor can test you to figure out exactly what is going on, and prescribe the right treatment for you that will be effective and get rid of the problem once and for all.

In addition to personal hygiene, the author also frequently publishes information about how to build closet shelves together with wood closet shelving.
