- Diagnosis and Treatment for Brown Toenail Fungus -
Brown toenails are most definitely unsightly for both men and women. However, if you are among those suffering from brown toenail fungus that has caused a noticeable discoloration of one or more nails, take heart as you are certainly not alone as this generally benign condition affects thousands of people every day in all walks of life.
Although you may have plenty of good company when it comes to having
a brown toenail that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to having
discolored nails infected with fungus. But what are the best ways of
treating the stubborn fungus effectively and without compromising your
health in the process?
Identifying Brown Toenail Fungus
A brown nail often indicates the second stage of a fungal infection, leaving you little time to act and treat the problem before it progresses on to the third and final stage where the crumbling and thickening of the brown toe nails have caused them to become disfigured and often painful. Of course, the sooner you treat a bout of brown toenail fungus the better as the condition tends to be immune to many forms of treatment.
Brown toenails are often accompanied by other symptoms such as a flaking
and cracking along with a thickening of the nail, making it noticeably
more difficult to cut and file. The fungus that causes nails to become
brown or yellowish in color may also cause pain while walking or wearing
tight fitting shoes, which will also exacerbate the infection by giving
the organisms a warm, dark place to thrive.
Treating Brown Toenails
When it comes to treating a brown nail, you will find that the vast majority of over-the-counter medicines are known for their ineffectiveness and prescription medications are frowned upon due to their frightening side effects. Treating brown toenails successfully will certainly require patience as well as a bit of trial and error in order to find the method that your fungal infection responds to the best.
Although a quick search of the Internet will yield a number of results touting the efficacy of home remedies, there are very few instances of scientific results backing these claims. Some people swear by the use of regular beer, soaking the feet twice daily ensuring to completely cover the affected nails. White distilled vinegar and apple cider vinegar are also known to have antifungal properties much like beer and reports of using both abound online for treating nail fungus.
During treatment, you will definitely want to avoid places where fungus tends to be present, such as around public pools, saunas, gyms, locker rooms, and showers. Always wear sandals, keep your feet clean and dry and in comfortable fitting shoes while giving them plenty of time to “breathe” each day.
Having a brown toenail is certainly nothing to be ashamed
of and while treating brown toenails does take some time and effort
on your part, learning about all of your various treatment options,
the average success rates of each as well as any potential side effects
will allow you to choose the absolute best method.
