A fungus is a common microbe that can grow in any part of the body, but when it overgrows, it is referred to as a fungus infection. When a fungus infection affects either your toenails or fingernails, it is known as Onychomycosis or Tinea unguium. Fungal infections in your nails usually develop over a period, and therefore immediate diagnosis is usually not possible. Our fungal nail infection treatment in London starts with a one-on-one consultation to customise the treatment of patients according to their needs.
Our podiatry in London has satisfied over 3000 patients and works with leading podiatrists to fight complicated fungal foot and nail cases.
How Does The Fungus Grow?
The overgrowth of the fungi usually happens in, under or on the nail. Fungus usually grows in a warm, moist and damp environment. Therefore fungal infections are more common in your toenails than the fingernails, as our feet are usually exposed to confined spaces like our shoes. You can also get a fungal infection if you come in contact with someone who already has an infection, like wearing their shoes or using their nail clippers. It is always advisable to enquire about the sanitisation process of the tools at salons before getting a manicure or pedicure, as infections are contagious.
Who Can Get A Nail Infection?
Anyone can get a fungal nail infection; that is why, our podiatry in London provides one-on-one consultations to understand each case better and provide the treatment accordingly. People with multiple health conditions often cannot take all kinds of medicines; therefore, consultation becomes the key. People who are more susceptible to nail infections are:
Have poor blood circulation
Aged over 65 years
Do activities like swimming or gymming that requires them to use public spaces
Have a weak immune system
Wear artificial nails
Have nail or skin injury around the nail
Wear closed-toe shoes
