You can become infected with a fungus in a shoe store, if a person with such a disease has tried on a couple before you, in the shower, bath or pool. Due to the wrong time to start treatment, the disease can progress quite quickly.
At the initial stage, many patients are unaware of the problem, since there is no pain and discomfort, and appearance does not say much about it. Therefore, the severe form of mycoses is not such a rarity. Fortunately, she is being treated, you just have to be patient.
It is important to eliminate the cause of severe mycosis. This may be a constant visit to a public bath without your shale or, for example, the use of someone else's shoes at work. Anything that may contribute to infection should be excluded.
You should always remember about hygiene - you need to keep your feet clean and dry, wear clean socks every morning, keep your house clean. Sometimes it seems that all this stuff, but in fact it is hygiene that allows you to avoid infection. After the course of treatment, all shoes must be disinfected .
To maintain immunity, you should drink vitamins, eat healthy foods and give up bad habits.
Finally, the treatment must be continuous. We must not forget to drink pills and apply local preparations, otherwise all the treatment is a waste.
Treatment of the fungus of the nail of the neglected form requires an integrated approach. At this stage it is impossible to cure, using only the drug for external use (ointment or varnish, for example), a complex of medicines is necessary:
System remedies ( tablets for oral administration).
Mechanical removal. This can be a neat cutting / cutting of the damaged part of the nail, a medical pedicure in the hospital, or an appropriate preparation for softening the nail.
Restorative remedies (multivitamins required) and agents that activate the immune system.
Consider specific examples from medical practice:
1. Hit the nail on the big toe. The patient went to the clinic after part of the nail collapsed.
Sample scraping and seeding was carried out. Identified infection with dermatophytes.
Orungal tablets prescribed courses for 1 week, a break between courses of 3 weeks, only 3 courses.
In the first 3 months, Exoderil drops were prescribed, after that a significant improvement came, the damaged part of the nail was removed by the patient independently. This was done with a nail file, gradually, before each application of drops.
After that, the patient was transferred to lacquer Loceril, applied 1 time in 2 weeks. Before each application occurred removing the remnants of the old varnish.
Only six months later, a significant improvement was noticeable (bottom photo). It is recommended to continue applying varnish for another six months, disinfecting shoes and living quarters, a course of multivitamins every 2 months.
2. A similar case, with the exclusion of the pathogen, is a family of yeast-like fungi.
Assigned tablets Lamisil courses for 2 weeks, a break between courses 4 weeks, only 2 courses.
There were several procedures of mechanical processing in the clinic with the application of a special varnish, after which a significant part of the nail was removed. In parallel, the patient applied anti-fungal drops daily.
The second photo was taken after 8 months, noticeably better, not as fast as in the first case, in view of the more solid age of the patient.
It is recommended to apply antifungal varnish and further observation by a doctor.
