Best Ways To Treat Fungal Infections In Nails

Best Ways To Treat Fungal Infections In Nails

If you are experiencing symptoms such as swelling, inflammation, thickening, yellowing and crumbling of your nails, toenail fungus or onychomycosis is indicated. This is a very common problem, which is usually painless, unless the infection gets spread. The fungus thrives under certain conditions like abnormal levels of pH in the skin, a weak immune system, poor hygiene, diabetes and a continuous exposure to moist or damp environment. If not treated properly, toenail fungus can lead to cracking, splitting or total loss of your toenail. There are various ways of treating fungal infections in the nails. Some of them are as follows:

  1. Tea Tree Oil: Tea tree oil contains antiseptic and antifungal properties, which help in treating toenail fungus. You need to mix some drops of tea tree oil with coconut oil and olive oil. Using a piece of cotton, apply the mixture on your affected nail, keep it for 10 minutes and scrub off the nail with a toothbrush. For ideal results, you must repeat this process more than twice regularly.

  2. Baking Soda: Baking soda is a commonly used remedy for fungal infections in your nails. It also helps in neutralizing foot odor. Add baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and Epsom salt in hot water, add vinegar to the mixture and soak your affected nail in the solution. After this, wash your feet with water. Repeat the procedure twice a day for several weeks.

  3. White Vinegar: This is an ideal ingredient for the treatment of toenail fungus. It helps in restoring the pH balance of the skin and fights against infections. Add one part of white vinegar to warm water and soak your affected toenail in it for about 10 minutes. After this, you must wash it off. Carry out the process twice a day for effective results.

  4. Oil of Pregano: Oil of oregano is considered effective because of its antibacterial, antiviral, analgesic and antiseptic properties. It is an ideal way for treating fungal infections in your nails. Mix oregano oil with olive oil, apply the solution on your nails and leave it for over 30 minutes. Repeat the process thrice a day for good results.

  5. Listerine Mouthwash: Listerine mouthwash is another important home remedy for treating fungal infections in the nails. This mouthwash contains certain compounds along with alcohol, which have very strong antiseptic properties and help in eliminating harmful fungi and bacteria from your nails. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dermatologist and ask a free question.

I'm explaining everything in detail. I have occasional pain in my testis that spreads through scrotum and come to the lower belly. I do not feel pain all the time. It happens 1-2 times in a months for few min ya its rare. I wear underwear rarely. Sometimes I go to cycling without underwear and that testis pain comes again. If I did some activity like running jumping without underwear pain happens. However I do not have dull aches, heaviness or lower back/pain. I do not have any pain while sitting.In past I had several injuries in my testis for not wearing underwear. But all gone. If I wear underwear by scrotum and testis pain never come. I checked my testis today both were firm not hard, no lumps, no pain but however my right testis very very slightly larger than left testis I also felt some things in right side of my scrotum where right testis exists. No lumps but I found some chords and veins like things which was painless but in left side same thing was very inside. I have gynecomastia which freaked me a lot. I heard testis cancer can cause gynecomastia. I had a very less severe grade 1 gynecomastia from 3 years. That breast is same like before not developed more nor shrinked. I'm freaking out is it testis cancer? More details about the presenting complaint: I have no 1.Unexplained fever 2.Unexplained sweating 3.Heaviness or dull aches in scrotum or back. 4.I do not have any lumps or hard or very bigger testis 5.weightless (i'm a skinny guy from childhood and my weight is 50 kg which is pretty fair in my view) 6.lose of appetite 7.Vomiting I do not have any of these. Also I do not have weakness. I have fatigue but that's because i'm lazy. I have no unexplained fatigue. If I have cancer since my gynecomastia I would have shown symptoms? What do you think.

There are almost no chance of you having cancer. The pain is mostly because of not wearing undergarments. And getting injured frequently. You may take homoeopathic medicine. Arnica 200 1 dose. And conium 30 tds for 3 days.

Hello. For the time being, take Biochemic medicine - Mag. Phos. 6x/ after every 2 hrs. for 2 days. But need to know more symptoms and associated problem with it to find out the root cause of your problem. Better visit a nearby doctor. To gain weight: Gaining weight is a slow process which requires patience and dedication! The food what and how you eat, makes the difference! For increasing your weight, concentrate on the below points ( if you don’t have any medical condition) which helps in gaining weight in a right way without harming your body. - Consume more healthy fats. Foods containing healthy fats are full of nutrients and also high in calories, making them a great option for weight gain. Foods containing plant fats should be your first option - this includes items such as nuts, seeds, peanut butter, avocados and olive oil. Foods containing healthy animals fats include lean meats and full fat dairy products - although if you have high cholesterol, you should probably stick to low-fat options. -Eat more protein. Good sources of protein include lean meat, fish and poultry, in addition to eggs, whole grains, dairy products and legumes. -Drink more calories. Try drinking a large glass of orange juice in the mornings (along with your normal breakfast). Drink a glass or two of full-cream milk throughout the day.Protein shakes will help you to gain muscle mass, particularly if you're working out. -Have 6 small and frequent meals in a day. -Gain muscle mass. It's a good idea to continue to exercise while you attempt to gain weight the healthy way. Strength training includes working with weights and performing exercises such as squats, deadlifts, bench presses, bicep curls, crunches, chin-ups and leg curls. Just keep in mind that the more you exercise, the more calories you will need to consume to replace those you lost while working out. This is where protein shakes and bars really come in handy. -Quit smoking. As it suppresses the appetite. -Stay healthy. The most important thing through the entire weight gain process is to stay healthy - eating a balanced diet and continuing to exercise throughout. -Take enough of rest and sleep for rejuvenation of the cells and tissues. -Think Positive which will help you in achieving your target of gaining weight. -Avoid taking unnecessary stress/ tension. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alfaalfa Tonic and Five Phos., both thrice daily ½ an hour before meals for 1month.
