2 Of The Easiest Ways To Fight Nail Fungus

feet without nail fungus

You have fungus on the nails of your feet or hands?

Unfortunately this is a common diagnosis. Around 15% of the people in my country (Bulgaria) have it. The nail fungus is very persistent and can very fast spread on the skin which makes the timely treatment very important.

Where do we get infected

Fungus are everywhere in our daily encirclement, but mostly in warm and moisty
places like the sauna or the showers. Usually the healthy nail is not easily infected. There should be certain factors:
  • Wounding on the nail or the skin around it.
  • Active sporting that leads to nail traumas.
  • Usage of unaired, tight shoes or gloves(rubber boots, rubber gloves or sport shoes).
  • Activities in a moisty surrounding.
  • Bad blood circulation, which leads to low blood supplies to the hands and feet.
  • Slow nail growth(for older people).

There are a couple of herbs that can do the trick like Tea tree, garlic, lemongrass and oregano ( see my post about the top 5 herbal nail fungus herbal treatments here )  but the cheapest, fastest and easiest way to remove nail fungus I know is povidone iodine. This is a medicine used to kill microorganisms without harming the human cells.

povidone iodine
this is not the same that I used, but it gives you an idea of what to look for

So how do I use this medicine?

Scratch the surface of your nail with an emery board that you will use only for this purpose, and dab it with the Povidone iodine, then smear some nail polish on it. That's all, do it for 3-4 days and you will see and feel the effect.
