Ignoring a problem doesn’t make it go away. This is particularly true when it comes to health issues. Dismissing a health problem as minor or just hoping that it resolves itself usually makes things worse. Such can be the case with toenail fungus. If you develop this common condition, don’t just treat it as an unattractive annoyance. If you fail to treat toenail fungus, it can lead to severe infections that can keep you off your feet – or worse.
What is Toenail Fungus?
Toenail fungus is highly contagious and quickly spread. You can get it walking on wet surfaces, at a nail salon, or anywhere your feet come into contact with a surface where the fungus lives. The fungus may make your toenails discolored, thick, brittle, and separated from the nail bed. Since toenail fungus is a living, growing organism, it may take some time between the time you come into contact with the fungus and the time symptoms become visible.
When you do realize that you may have an issue with toenail fungus, there are plenty of over-the-counter anti-fungal ointments and creams that can help resolve the issue. For particularly stubborn or severe cases, JAWSpodiatry offers an advanced, innovative, safe, and effective treatment for toenail fungus called Clearanail sometimes called the “silver bullet” for attacking and curing toenail fungus.
