There is an answer for toenail fungus …Antifungal Nail Polish!

Anti Toenail Fungus Polish

Nail polish that inhibits fungus growth on the nail. It is also free from harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, Xylene, Toluene, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) among others.

Antifungal polish comes in over 20 colors.

Chip resistent antifungal toenail polish contains Vitamins E & A, and B7 (Biotin). It is undeclyenic acid infused and is not tested on animals.

Regular nail polish traps moisture under the nail plate, creating the perfect growth conditions for fungus- a warm, dark, moist environment. While antifungal nail polish cannot cure an already deeply infected nail, it can protect the progress you can make all winter following our recommendations to beautiful fungus free nails!

Toenail fungus

Best way to cure  fungus toenails:

  1. Have your Podiatrist trim back the damaged nail and file very smooth
  2. Laser to kill fungus living under the nail plate.
  3. Leave uncovered all winter and apply daily applications of topical antifungal medications
  4. You may want to apply Keryflex Nail Restoration- a artificial toenail that doesn’t come off until it grows out.
  5. Apply antifungal nail polish for the summer!

Ingrown Toenail: Topical antifungal Nail Treatments

There are several over-the-counter topical nail products for ingrown toenails available wherever health products are sold. Some of these antifungal treatments contain botanical ingredients such as menthol and tea tree oil designed to decrease your inflammation. Additionally many topical agents will contain a salicylic acid. Salicylic acids relieve pain and soften nails. Do not use over the counter remedies if you have diabetes, AIDS, an infection of the foot or poor circulation.

Make sure to wear shoe that fit well and have enough room for your toes. If your shoes are not well-fitting and roomy, they can apply constant pressure to the nail, causing it to embed into the skin. This helps both ingrown and fungal toenails!

When To Look For Ingrown Toenail?

Generally, you should see your doctor when you first notice your ingrown nail, but maybe you want wait for it to heal on its own. At first ingrown toenail may not sound like a really serious problem, but as it grows older it can start becoming dangerous, and can lead to many problems like pain, infections and amputation if ignored for too long, so if you notice the following symptoms visit your doctor as soon as possible.

  1. If You Feel Continuous Discomfort

At early days of ingrown nail a little pain is normal, but as it grows older then discomfort will start raising and then there will be a point when you will feel continuous pain. If this happens then make sure to see your doctor first, since such symptoms aren’t good for an ingrown toenail at all.

  1. If You Notice Pus From Your Nail

Pus coming out of your ingrown toenail has only one answer, your toenail is infected! The injury caused by your ingrown toenail gave a good way to bacteria and germs to enter your wound and body which caused you infection. If an infection isn’t treated properly then it can lead to dangerous consequences like amputation. Sometimes bacteria may even enter your bloodstream which can lead to infection everywhere in your body.

  1. If You Have Diabetes

One last important thing about ingrown toenail everyone should know is that a diabetic person should never ignore it. Since any kind of wound can be life threating to a diabetic patient as their healing speed is really slow which makes them more susceptible to infections. Many diabetes patients need to lose their legs because of such reasons, so if you are a diabetic person suffering from ingrown nail then make sure to get it’s treatment right away.
