Toenail Fungus Treatment, Cures & Remedies
Now that you have an understanding of where toenail fungus comes from, its symptoms, and the potential complications that it comes with, you might feel a little anxious about your infection turning into something severe and life-threatening. If so, then let us reassure you that unless you are experiencing severe, debilitating symptoms, there is nothing to worry about. Toenail fungal infections are extremely common and the majority of these cases can be cured at home, without having to resort to surgery or other invasive forms of treatment.
It’s worth noting, however, that there are generally two routes you can take to getting rid of your fungal infection. The first is obviously to visit a doctor. The second, is to choose a topical, over-the-counter treatment that you can do yourself from the comfort of your own home.
We will discuss the pros and cons of each of these options later on in the article, but first let’s take a look at a few remedies and preventative measures that you can easily adopt.
How to Prevent Toenail Fungal Infections
Before we mention any specific measures for preventing toenail fungus infections, it’s worth noting that the best way to cure and prevent any fungal infections in the future is to keep your body in tip-top shape both on the inside and on the outside. This means taking care of your diet, quitting smoking (if you smoke) and exercising more. Having a fit and healthy body strengthens your immune system, which drastically reduces the chance of you getting another infection.
With that being said, general hygiene is probably the easiest way to reduce the chances of your infection getting any worse, or another one developing in the future. Washing your feet regularly with soap is essential. Also, make sure you dry your feet properly, especially between the toes. Trimming your nails to keep them relatively short will reduce the surface area for dirt, bacteria and fungus to be caught.
If you are suffering with a fungus infection, it can be tempting to paint over the effected nail to make it look easier on the eyes. This is a bad idea and we would recommend against doing so. Nail polish will prevent the nail from breathing, ultimately worsening the infection.
When using public showers, swimming pools and saunas, it’s always a good idea to wear your own pair of clean flip flops. This will prevent your feet from making contact with the bacteria and fungus that could be hiding in the cracks between the flooring tiles.
How to Cure Toenail Fungus Effectively
As we previously mentioned, there are usually two main routes for treating your fungal infections: visiting a doctor and treating it yourself at home. Logic would recommend that you visit your doctor, but in most of the cases it is unnecessary. Doctors will either give you one of two forms of treatment – an anti-fungal medication to kill the fungus from the inside, or a topical cream to cure the infection from the outside.
The problem with anti-fungal medication is the fact that the treatment can take up to 12 weeks to complete and comes with a massive list of potential side effects including kidney damage, stomach pain, loss of taste and liver damage. When you consider the fact that anti-fungal treatments are not even guaranteed to work, it’s easy to see why we would recommend against going with this route. The benefits do not outweigh the risks.
The second option is to purchase an external, topical treatment that you can use at home, without ever having to step foot in a doctor’s office. This method of treatment is convenient and simple, but can become expensive over time.
What Toenail Fungus Treatment Do We Recommend
There are two main products that we generally recommend to people who want to cure their fungal infections quickly and from the comfort of their own home. The first is a treatment called Fungavir, which is a topical treatment that you apply directly to the infected nail. Funagvir has been proven to work well, but it’s incredibly expensive and does not treat the root cause of the issue, only the external infection.
The product that we have used, love and recommend to everyone who wants to eradicate their toenail fungal infection permanently is a program called Nail Fungus Revealed. The program promises its users complete elimination of toenail fungus in just 21 days, which is considerably faster than both anti-fungal medication and a topical treatment such as Fungavir.
There are a few reasons why we recommend Nail Fungus Revealed to everyone who is suffering with a fungal infection, and it’s for these reasons why the program is such a popular choice for the thousands of people that have already used and had success with it. We’ll list some below.
- There are no expensive medications required.
- No medication means no harmful side effects. This program can be followed by everyone.
- There is no need to visit a doctor’s office. You can treat your infection from the comfort of your own home.
- You can expect fantastic results in just a few weeks. It’s considerably faster than the second best option.
You are probably thinking that this sounds too good to be true, or that it’s incredibly expensive. The truth is, the program is also the most affordable option when you consider the fact that a doctor’s visit would mean you have to take time out of your schedule, plus all of the expensive medication and follow-up visits.
Nail Fungus Revealed will teach you everything you need to know about nail fungus, where it comes from, how to cure it with ingredients that are currently sat in your home cupboard and refrigerator and most importantly, how to make sure it never comes back.
