    When you tinker in silt, sand and gravel on a river, pond, or grab onto dirty asphalt road, the skin near the root of the nail is damaged and when the fungus is brought in (from the crushed crumb of bread or dump landfill), it eventually grows from the infected root of the nail through the entire nail to its end - it looks like thickened strips-tubes with a fungus. It is noticeable that the fungus is present on the nails after touching the nails with fresh bread or raw rags - when after 3 (three) days it is already visible on them and the longer, the more noticeable are the colonies of white, dark fungus. He treated the fungus with a two-week course of 100mg per day of Itraconazole - lubricating the surface of the nail and under the raised skin near the roots of the nail Exoderil - there were toli sensations, pressure or pressure on the nail, but after this course of application, the bread stopped to grow mold - like he recovered, now I drink two weeks later not taking another two-week course of 100mg per day for prophylaxis.
