Fungal Nail Infection - What Causes It?

Fungal Nail Infection - What Causes It?

Fungal infections in nails are caused by an overgrowth of the fungi in your nails. When the growth of fungus happens on the fingernails or toenails, it is known as onychomycosis or tineaunguium. Here are the probable causes of why you might get a fungal nail infection:

Causes

  1. Diabetes
  2. Problems in your circulatory system
  3. Age
  4. Artificial nails
  5. Swim in public pools
  6. Nail injuries
  7. Skin injuries surrounding the nail
  8. Fingers or toes which have been moist for an extended period of time
  9. Immune system problems
  10. Wearing shoes which have toes enclosed

It is also worth note that fungal infections happen much more frequently in your toenail as compared to your fingernail. This is because of two main reasons. The first reason is that fungi can grow very easily on your toenails because of the position. Your shoes are dark, warm and moist and therefore, perfect for the growth of fungi. The second reason for more fungal infections on your toe nails as compared to your fingernails is because toes have less blood flow than fingers, thus making it harder for the immune system to fight off the infection.

Symptoms
Fungal infections in your nails are one of the easier infections to diagnose. This is because there are several symptoms which indicate you have this condition. Here are those symptoms.

  1. Scaling underneath your skin
  2. White or yellow streaks on your nails
  3. Corners of the nail may crumble
  4. Flaky surface of the nail
  5. Yellow spots at the bottom of the nails
  6. Loss of nail
  7. A nail breaking off from the rest of the nails
  8. An odor from the nail
  9. Brittle or thick nails

Fungal Infection (Ringworm): Causes, Symptoms, Cure!

Fungal Infection (Ringworm): Causes, Symptoms, Cure!

Ringworm is one of the common skin infections; the funny part is that, it isn’t a worm at all. Ringworm is called so because of the patchy ring like mark it leaves on the skin.

Ringworm is caused by fungus (Tinea) that lives off keratin and dead skin. A lot of people associate Ringworm with insect bite, because they assume it is a worm, but that is not the case.

Here is a quick overview of causes of Ringworm, its symptom, as well as its treatment options.

How do one get Ringworm in the first place?

  1. Ringworm is highly contagious, so if one person is in physical contact with another person having ringworm, that person will also get Ringworm infection.
  2. Ringworm is a fungus, so it can come from objects like comb, damp clothes, towels and brush. It is important to remember to not use products of any other person.
  3. One might also get ringworm from pets. Make sure to bath them regularly and also to wash hands after touching them.
  4. A person can also contact this fungus through soil; it is important that one doesn’t stands on soil barefooted.

Symptoms of Ringworm

  1. There will be flaky patches all over the scalp. It can also be very painful and itchy. One may also notice significant hair loss, particularly in the infected areas.
  2. When the fungus occurs on skin, it usually leaves patchy red ring like mark. These marks might itch a lot, especially around the ring mark. These ring marks will be reddish and inflamed.
  3. When this occurs in the groin area, one might feel itchiness and a burning sensation. Inflamed ring like patches can be noticed on the inner thighs, which will be painful while walking.

Types of Ringworm

  1. Tinea Corporis: This particular fungus is usually the reason for “Jock Itch” or ring worms in the groin area. These fungi leave a brownish-red mark on the groin and inner thighs. Tinea Corporis is on the body.
  2. Tinea Cruris is in the groin.
  3. Tinea Facei: These fungi generally occur on the face, leaving scaly and inflamed marks around the beard area.
  4. Tinea Mannum and Tinea Pedis: These ringworm types occur on arms and feet; they usually spread through contaminated soil. Tinea Pedis is in the feet.

Treatment of Fungal Infection or Ringworm
Treatment for Ringworm usually involves ointments. These ointments are usually applied on inflamed skin. Some ointments are specifically applied on the foot area that is inflamed because of Tinea pedis fungus. There are also anti-fungal tablets that can be taken. These oral medicines are given when the disease is in its advance stages and when the ointment didn’t work in the first place.

Conclusion
Ringworm is a highly contagious disease, that it is why it is important to be vigilant about the surroundings. And if someone is already suffering from it, steps should be taken to get rid of it as soon as possible.
