Are you embarrassed of your feet? Specifically, do you struggle with toenail fungus? Many of us do! No need to be embarrassed! Especially now that it is summer, it’s natural to want to show off your feet with sandals or going barefoot at the pool or beach! Now you can!
There are numerous natural treatments for toenail fungus, and if you don’t have success with those, we can help you out at Advanced Aesthetics of Northern Colorado by eradicating toenail fungus with laser treatment!
Toenail fungus is characterized by inflammation, pain, and swelling of the toe, as well as yellowing, thickening, and crumbling of the nail itself. It can result from an abnormal pH of the skin, continuous exposure to moisture, wearing synthetic socks, a compromised immune system, sweat build up in shoes, poor foot hygiene or weak circulation such as that caused by diabetes.
It can be treated with topical treatments, oral anti-fungal medicine, or surgical removal of the nail. Side effects may include trouble breathing, swelling of the mouth or face, hives, rashes, blisters, headaches, dizziness, nausea, loss of appetite, liver damage, weight gain, fatigue, heart problems, fever, diarrhea, and pain.
Another approach to treatment is that of traditional herbal medicine, including natural oils, fruit juices, and dry goods. Most of these have no side effects at all. The top ten remedies include apple cider vinegar (topically, internally, or both), olive leaf extract, tea tree oil, orange oil, corn meal, baking soda and sodium borate, coconut oil, and lavender oil.
