If you are one of them see how you can treat your nail mycosis here.

nail mycosis Nail mycosis is mainly caused by a fungus known as dermatophyte but there are also other types of fungi that occasionally attack the nails, such as the well known one that causes candidiasis disease.

Nails are a great place for fungi to proliferate because the nails, especially the toenails, are usually in warm, humid and dark environments such as shoes or socks. As fungi do not like sunlight or dry environments they multiply easily in the toenails.

There are many factors that can contribute to the appearance of fingernail mycosis, the most common being walking barefoot in humid and infected environments (such as changing rooms, near swimming pools and other public places) or in nature (such as in lawn fields) because it is the place where these fungi are usually found.

Age also contributes to the onset of nail mycosis as older people have circulation problems, particularly on the feet, and a weaker immune system and this can contribute to the fungus causing nail mycosis being able to penetrate more easily under the nail and multiply.

People who are prone to sweat easily are also good victims of nail mycosis. Sweating creates the moist conditions that all fungi like. The presence of sores or cuts near the nails that allow the fungus to introduce itself more easily are also responsible for the appearance of nail mycosis symptoms.

Wearing wet or sweaty socks is also a danger as it provides the ideal environment for the nail mycosis fungus to develop. Other diseases such as athlete’s foot, diabetes, AIDS and any disease that affects the immune system can also be the cause of the appearance of nail mycosis symptoms.

The treatment of nail mycosis is also not easy or fast, it can take several months before a new, completely decontaminated nail is born again and the infected one comes out naturally. However, most cases can be treated at home by the person. Fungus in the nails

Regardless of which nail mycosis treatment you choose is prepared to commit to the treatment for a few months until the nails are completely free of the nail mycosis symptoms.
