There’s a lot of things that can affect your feet, whether it be athlete’s foot, ingrown toenails or foot pain. However, the most annoying (although not always painful) foot problem is by far nail fungus!
Nail fungus is a common condition that begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your fingernail or toenail. As the fungal infection goes deeper, nail fungus may cause your nail to discolor, thicken and crumble at the edge. The condition typically affects toenails.
Over time, it can cause pain and spread to other nails and onto your skin. Even if you cure it successfully, the fungus can come back.
Toenail fungus can be the result of abnormal pH of the skin, continuous exposure to moisture, wearing synthetic socks, sweat build-up in shoes, poor foot hygiene, compromised immune system or poor circulation.
Today, modern medicine treats toenail fungus with topical treatments, oral anti-fungal medicines, and in some cases surgical removal of the nail.
In such cases there might be side effects of these medications, which include trouble breathing, swelling of the mouth or face, loss of appetite, hives, rashes, blisters, headaches, dizziness, nausea, fatigue, liver damage, weight gain, diarrhea, heart problems, fever, and more pain, all that because of a fungus on your toenails.
