common nail conditions and treatments

2023-06-24

Nail conditions are a well-recognized issue that affect half of the population in the United States, per stats from the American Academy of Dermatology. These conditions typically affect women more often and can range from nail fungus to ingrown nails to brittle nails.

Onychomycosis, more commonly known as nail fungus, is much more prevalent in toenails than fingernails. This fungus infiltrates the nails and beds, and can be spread through the use of shared nail clippers or by coming into contact with an infected space like a locker room or a swimming pool. For those afflicted, their nails will likely thicken and yellow, potentially leading to brittleness and pain. Fortunately, both oral antifungal therapies and topical treatments exist for conquering this condition.

When your toenails enter the skin rather than their normal curvature, an ingrown nail has occurred. This is commonly caused by insufficiently trimmed nails or when regularly exposed to dampness. Nothing else is more painful than an ingrown nail and can cause infection if left untreated. To heal an ingrown nail, one must initially immerse the afflicted area in a pleasant warm water bath. By gentle manipulation, the nail should be able to be guided back into its broad curvature. But on the chance the ingrowth is severe, it may necessitate a medical elimination of the nail.

Fragile nails are an unpleasing predicament that people may struggle with. Genetics, age, and coming into contact with certain chemicals are common culprits of weak nails. From preventative to offensive steps, avoiding the use of harmful chemicals and reducing exposure to water are paramount in taking measures against brittle nails. Furthermore, investing in a nail hardener as a part of your daily beauty routine can help fortify weak and brittle nails.
