Some Helpful – Hints & Tips
Nail fungus is more common than you think
The NHS estimates that around three in every 100 people in the U.K. suffers from a fungal nail infection. It’s about four times more common in toenails than fingernails.
Prevention is better than cure
There a few things you can do to maintain healthy feet. Don’t go barefoot in public facilities- nail fungus is highly contagious and so it pays to wear protective slippers or shoes in public facilities like at the gym, in shower rooms, and locker rooms. Dry feet thoroughly after washing, and change shoes and socks regularly.
Stop infections spreading
It sounds simple, but after applying medication or touching any infections, wash hands with a medicated soap. It keeps the infection area isolated and will help avoid breakouts elsewhere. Nail fungus is incredibly infectious.
