Keep nail fun­gus at bay

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

NAIL fun­gus can be a real night­mare and quite an em­bar­rass­ment.

What does nail fun­gus look like? When a nail is at­tacked by fun­gus, it be­comes brit­tle and splits eas­ily. Fun­gus dis­colours the nails, caus­ing them to be de­formed.

Fun­gal nail in­fec­tion is caused by var­i­ous fungi which abound in the en­vi­ron­ment. Not ev­ery­body may be aware of the con­di­tion, but those who have suf­fered from it know how se­vere it can get. It also takes pa­tience to wait un­til it is com­pletely cured.

Nail fun­gus is more likely to de­velop in warm, moist con­di­tions, such as showers and sweaty shoes.

Ini­tially, der­mato­phytes grow and feed on the nail un­til fun­gus sets in. The fun­gus will even­tu­ally at­tack the nail root. When the nail grows, it will thicken and be­come de­formed.

In most cases, fun­gus at­tacks the big toe. It can get un­com­fort­able wear­ing shoes when one has a fun­gal nail in­fec­tion.

Worse still, nail fun­gus can af­fect the skin area around the nail to give off a foul odour and ul­ti­mately re­sult in the loss of the nail in its ad­vanced stage.

Wear­ing shoes with an in­fected nail will worsen the con­di­tion.

You can pick up a fun­gal in­fec­tion while walk­ing bare­foot around a swim­ming pool, in a gym locker room or shower, or even when hav­ing a pedi­cure un­der less-than-san­i­tary con­di­tions. Sus­cep­ti­bil­ity may be height­ened among those who have di­a­betes, an im­mune-de­fi­ciency con­di­tion, a his­tory of ath­lete’s foot or those prone to ex­ces­sive per­spi­ra­tion.

Foot fun­gus usu­ally trav­els through an open­ing in the skin or sep­a­ra­tion in the nail bed and if con­tin­u­ally ex­posed to warm and moist en­vi­ron­ments, it will grow in abun­dance.

Say good­bye to nail fun­gus

Ex­cilor Treat­ment for Fun­gal Nail in­fec­tion is a clin­i­cally proven rem­edy that treats fun­gal in­fec­tions on nails, helps re­duce and elim­i­nate the vis­i­ble signs of in­fec­tion and dis­coloura­tion and pro­motes the ap­pear­ance of healthy nails.

A study has shown that 81% of pa­tients see im­prove­ment in 42 days.

Ex­cilor ef­fec­tively treats fun­gal in­fec­tions at the root. The most im­por­tant con­stituent of toe­nails and fin­ger­nails is ker­atin, which most anti-fun­gal prepa­ra­tions are un­able to pen­e­trate.

In most cases, fungi grow un­der­neath the nail, which makes it dif­fi­cult to treat.

Ex­cilor is spe­cially for­mu­lated to ef­fec­tively pen­e­trate be­low the sur­face of nails to treat in­fec­tions from the root. It con­trols the mi­cro-en­vi­ron­ment of the nail by acid­i­fy­ing the nail bed.

Ex­cilor im­me­di­ate low­ers the pH of the nail, creat­ing an en­vi­ron­ment that is hos­tile to fun­gal growth. Once a new nail grows, the in­fec­tion should be elim­i­nated.

Ex­cilor comes with a pen­shaped ap­pli­ca­tor, mak­ing it quick and easy to use. It is avail­able at all lead­ing phar­ma­cies na­tion­wide.
