6 Fun­gal nail fury

Cosmopolitan (India) - - BEAUTY -

“I’ve got a fun­gal nail in­fec­tion”. Not the kind of thing you an­nounce on a first date! An in­fected nail of­ten looks thick and dis­coloured, with in­flamed skin sur­round­ing it. Although th­ese in­fec­tions can oc­cur out of the blue, lec­turer in po­di­a­try Michael Har­ri­son-Blount be­lieves nails dam­aged by a trau­matic event are most likely to be­come in­fected. “For mild to moderate in­fec­tions, it’s worth try­ing an over-the­counter nail-paint treat­ment first,” he ad­vises. “If your in­fec­tion is se­vere, oral med­i­ca­tion may be needed.” Keep nails cut short, but al­ways cut the in­fected nail last.
