Nail the causes
TOENAIL fungus is a common fungal infection that makes up 50% of nail disorders. With the condition affecting the everyday lives of so many individuals, it’s important to know its causes and ways to avoid it. If you think you or someone close to you has this condition, take a moment to educate yourself about the top 10 causes below: 1. Damage to the toenail such as cracking or separation from the nail bed, which even though tiny, allows microscopic spores in the environment to enter and start the infection that leads to toenail fungus. 2. Living or working in hot, humid conditions provide the ideal environment for fungus to grow. 3. Poor foot hygiene like not washing your feet every day, going barefoot in public places, or not drying your feet completely after showering are common causes of toenail fungus. 4. A weakened immune system caused sometimes by certain diseases or their treatments. 5. The type of footwear you choose each day can help or hinder the growth of toenail fungus. Shoes or boots that are fully enclosed don’t allow the feet to breath and can promote the growth of fungus by providing a moist environment. 6. Genetics can cause you to be more vulnerable to attracting toenail fungus if one of your parents has had it. 7. Wearing the same shoes every day without airing them traps sweat and heat and doesn’t allow your feet to breathe. 8. Activities that cause wear and tear such as running or other sports are often causes of toenail fungus because they could lead to a ruptured nail plate. Since these types of activities cause your feet to perspire, the moisture gets trapped in the nail cracks, inviting fungus in. 9. Poor circulation is a contributing factor of toenail fungus because restriction in blood flow causes the nail to lose valuable nutrition, making it weak and susceptible. 10. Practices that cause cross contamination at nail salons are causes of toenail fungus because of unsterilised equipment or unsanitary practices such as using the same tools on multiple customers or not properly cleaning the pedicure basin.
