Fungus Hack

by Alisa Princy (2020-03-28)

The most extreme form of Fungus Hack Review treatment for nail fungus is to surgically remove the nail. This is usually reserved for patients with very thick toenails who just "don't want to have to deal with it anymore." These patients usually have pain associated with the extreme thickness of their toenail. It is typical for these patients to deal with these nail problems for decades. In our office, when we perform the procedure, we remove the nail permanently. We do this because a temporary procedure that allows the nail to grow back does not insure a "clear" nail will grow in the old nail's place. When you remove a nail, you disrupt the root of the nail, and in essence, cause injury to the root and the nail bed. If you have read the previous articles I've written about nail fungus, you will know that nail injury can mimic the look of nail fungus. So, if we temporarily remove the nail, but damage the nail bed and the root in the process, the new nail that grows back (while it may not be fungal) may be injured and thus "look" fungal. If that is the case you just went through a nail procedure for nothing. Why? Because you still have a fungal looking nail. So, if you choose to go the surgical route, my advice is permanent nail removal. Wear socks. When wearing closed shoes, it is helpful to wear socks for comfort. Our heel has a layer of fat that absorbs a majority of the impact brought about by walking and running. While shoe inserts may help, socks can cushion this. Comfortable socks are all the more important as we grow older because this shock absorbing layer of fat becomes thinner. Also, socks protect the feet from the shoe to prevent blisters, corns, or calluses. In addition to this, socks that are made from natural fibers like wool or cotton absorb sweat. There are socks made from special wicking materials, which are designed to wick away the moisture from the skin. Wash feet. Washing our feet is very essential for our feet's health. This is often taken for granted as we take a shower. Sweat and dirt get trapped in between toes every time we go in and out of the house. To make sure that these areas do not become a breeding ground for bacteria that may cause foot odor; we should soap and rinse these areas thoroughly. It is just as important to dry the feet completely to prevent moisture from getting trapped inside. Foot powder can help in keeping the feet dry all the time.
