Fungal infections on skin are the most common of all and are effectively treated with homeopathy. I advise you to stop allopathic treatment as it gives temporary results only with lots of side effects, it will recur once you stop medicines and homeopathic treatment cures it from roots without side effects. No chance of recurrence. You can consult me online for homoeopathic treatment without side effects.

Catering Feet And Nails In Diabetes & Managing Corns And Calluses!

Catering Feet And Nails In Diabetes & Managing Corns And Calluses!
Diabetes paves the way for numerous foot problems. They are painful can affect gait and posture. This is why taking care of the feet is essential for anybody, especially diabetic people.

Common Diabetes-Related Foot Problems-

Diabetes can cause foot deformities like hammertoes and bunions. In most cases, the condition is reversible but in some cases the deformity is permanent. Even then, surgery can help.

Common problems of the foot include corns and calluses. Not taking good care of the feet and toenails can lead to an array of bacterial and fungal infections like Athlete s Foot or infections of the nails. Let s look at how we can take care of corns and calluses.

What are Corns and Calluses?

They are apparently similar and often affect a person simultaneously. Calluses are dry, hardened patches of skin, especially underneath the toes. They make it difficult to walk, they can be prickly on the heels. The cracks in the feet easily allow fungal or bacterial infections.

Corns, on the other hand, are more painful. They form on softer parts of the feet. Calluses are limited to the harder parts where the pressure is higher. Unlike calluses, corns cause more pain than numbness. Corns are smaller and can appear even on top of the feet or at the sides.

Both are identified by thickened, hardened skin that is dried and cracked on the outside and painful on the inside.

Problem With Toe Nails in Diabetic People-

The toenails of diabetic people tend to get thicker and more brittle. They also tend to grow inwards if they are not clipped regularly. Ingrown nails are painful. Also, thicker brittle nails make room for infection.

Treatment-

The best idea is to avoid such problems of the foot by maintaining good hygiene. Here s what can be done to reverse corns and calluses and fungal nail problems:

Washing the feet with mild soap in warm water every day to keep them clean and soft.

Using natural or over-the-counter antiseptics to fight the existing fungus and bacteria.

Using over-the-counter oral medication to fight the infections.

Wearing closed shoes with socks to lock in moisture and avoid contact with dirt.

Keeping the feet dry to avoid fungal infection but keeping them moisturized to avoid cracks that allow the infection to enter the body.

Wearing special diabetic footwear to ensure that the feet get the required support. As long as the feet are not sweaty and the airflow is maintained, they won t be a breeding ground for bacteria, virus, and fungi.

Trimming nails every week and keeping them clean.

Treatment of corns, calluses, and ingrown nails is the same as the preventive measures so they must become a part of life. Except for the medication, that is only needed when there is already an infection.

You are using a mixture of strongest steroid plus antibiotics plus antiseptic plus many more unnecessary drugs which have serious & permanent side effects on your skin. First of all stop all the creams you are applying. Show your skin to a dermatologist or if dermatologist is not accessible message in private for detailed history.

Wash the affected skin two to three times a day. Keep the affected area dry. Avoid excess affected skin irritation by wearing 100% cotton underwear. Avoid fabric softeners, bleaches, or harsh laundry detergents. Wash your workout clothes, underwear, socks, and towels after each use. Keep your affected area, inner thighs, and buttocks clean and dry, especially after you exercise and shower. After showering or bathing, dry the irritated affected area by gently patting it with a towel. Be sure to dry your skin thoroughly. Mix two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of warm water. Wash the infected area with this solution and allow it to dry on its own. Another option is to apply a mixture of equal parts of white vinegar and coconut oil on the affected skin. Like hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol can help kill off the fungus that's on the surface level of the skin. You can apply it directly to the affected area listerine: it has antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial properties, which help treat skin problem here are some tips to help you manage the infection:avoid using oily skin products. Reduce your exposure to the sun. Exposure to the sun may trigger or worsen an episode, and a tan makes the rash more visible. Do not wear tight clothing. Wear breathable fabrics, such as cotton, to decrease sweating.
