Fungal diseases of the legs today can be called a disease of civilization.
Fungi or their disputes are everywhere - in the air, in the soil, on the skin of every person. A healthy body is in a symbiosis with fungus. But it is worth changing the conditions, and the fungus immediately violates «neutrality».
Some have learned to perceive the fungi on the legs of philosophically, as a given. It's still not to get rid of it, so why spend power, nerves and money! Others, maybe we would be happy to join, but they give up in advance, after reading that the victory can not be easy and fast. In the end, everything turns into a true thriller, where «the villain» Do not even consider it necessary to hide and originates decent people openly, slowly and painfully.
«Survive» fungus is really not so easy. And only a qualified specialist can solve this problem.
Development of the disease
The impetus for the development of the disease can not serve not only the poorly selected shoes, providing increased temperature and sweating of the legs, but also endocrine diseases of the pancreas and thyroid glands. Loves fungus and body sections with impaired blood supply. An important factor that opens the destruction of the disease is the weakening of the immune system, while the entire flora living on the human body is activated, and usually not causing diseases.
As a rule, the disease begins with the skin of the stop - peeling appears, the skin between the fingers cracks and acquires a white flare. Cracks and outgrowths of coarse leather appear on heels.
Defeat of nail plates
If there is no action during non-taught, then the defeat of nail records arises. Nail plates become yellow and often peeling from the nail bed. Sometimes multicolored spots arise on the nails, they become muddy. However, similar signs may arise with a wide variety of diseases that are not related to fungal infection. Therefore, before appointing treatment, you need to confirm the diagnosis, having studied the affected areas under a microscope or inserted culture.
Most often the fungus is considered as a cosmetic defect. However, the problem is that the affected nails are a permanent tank of fungal infection, which can spread through the body, amazing even internal organs.
Treatment of fungal damage stop
To prevent the appearance of fungal flashes of nails, you need to do as soon as possible to treat fungal damage to stop. Previously, the fungus was treated, treating the affected places with antiseptics, or folk remedies. Now there are many drugs, with the help of which at the initial stage you can get rid of the Mikosa Stop (in the absence of pathology of the internal organs).
Difficulties arise if the disease has already affected the nails, or appeared the foci of hyperkeratose (increased energization) on the skin stop. In this case, treatment must be complex.
It should include the appointment of antifungal drugs - if there are no contraindications to their intended purpose. In this case, if necessary, the patient should receive a highly qualified consultation of the gastroenterologist, or an endocrinologist (according to indications).
The second important stage in the complex treatment of fungal diseases is the mechanical removal of an increased either on the skin or nails. To date, several techniques are applied.
The most common is dissolving special fluids at home the upper layers of the nail, or areas of increased skin erochive. However, it is quite a long and exhausting work, requiring a large amount of time.
Less common recently was the surgical removal of the nail plate. Abroad from this method have long refused. In Russia, it is still applied (although there is a number of complications)
The fastest, safe and painless way of mechanical removal of an increased either skin or nails is a hardware method («Medical pedicure»). This method, with the help of a special apparatus, equipped with a multitude of fixtures, grinding, nail feeding, removal of excessive burdens on the skin, caustic removal and T.D. When grinding, the surface of the nail is aligned and layers affected by fungus are removed.
And if the doctor determined that in your case only local treatment will be sufficient (applying varnishes, creams) - then the thinner will be the affected nail fabric, those contained in the lacquer, or the cream active substances will be better penetrated into the intercellular space of the nail plate.
therefore «Medical pedicure» will save you from long and exhausting work at home. After all, only a qualified specialist can identify that face where it is necessary to stop in order not to injure the nail bed.
Only an integrated approach in solving this problem will allow you to quickly and reliably get rid of fungus.
