THE NUM­BER OF CANA­DI­ANS WHO FEEL TOENAIL FUNGUS IN­FEC­TIONS ARE A “TURNOFF.”

Best Health - - WELLNESS NEWS -

Af­fect­ing nearly 2.5 mil­lion Cana­di­ans, ony­chomy­co­sis (aka nail fungus) is more than just a cos­metic is­sue; it’s a chronic in­fec­tion that, left un­treated, can lead to se­ri­ous is­sues. For mild cases, ap­ply a drop or two of teatree oil (a nat­u­ral an­ti­sep­tic) to the nail. To fight mod­er­ate cases, talk to your phar­ma­cist about top­i­cal an­ti­fun­gal treat­ments on the mar­ket. Use them af­ter you shower, when your skin is soft­est.

Oral an­ti­fun­gal meds are an op­tion but typ­i­cally re­served for se­ri­ous in­fec­tions.
