common nail infections


Nail infections are a nuisance that can befall anyone regardless of age. These infective agents can render fingernails and toenails unsightly, uncomfortable, and significantly reduce self-confidence. Three of the most common are fungal, bacterial, and viral infections.

Nail infections caused by fungi are far and away the most frequent kind of nail infection. These fungi dwell in the dead skin on the nails and the infection infiltrates the nails through minimal cuts or cracks in the skin. Unchecked, these fungi can propagate rapidly turning the nails to thick, brown or yellow hues. Treatment for a fungal infection can be quite complicated and may necessitate administration of antifungal medicines orally.

Bacterial intrusions are a typical kind of nail contamination. These bacteria which call the skin home can find their way into the nails through tiny splits or breaks in the epidermis. With the germs now in the nails, they can make them swell, inflame and bring pain. Antibiotics will treat bacterial infections successfully.

While viral infections are uncommon, they unmanageably invade the nails and become a problem. Once viruses are able to slip in through tiny openings in the skin, they nestle into the nails causing them to turn a hostile red, become swollen and become painfully tender. Unfortunately, these infections are difficult to overcome and require prescription oral medicine to treat.

Experiencing a nail infection can be an embarrassing and uncomfortable occurrence. Fortunately, such a situation can often be remedied by seeking the advice of a medical professional and receiving the right treatment.
