Black Toenail Fungus

It looks rather unattractive, it makes you want to keep your feet covered even during summer when you'd like to wear your sandals and it can lower your self esteem, making you self conscious. All this from a black toenail fungus infection, it seems so small and insignificant!

But now that you know what it is, what can you do about it and how can you stop it coming back? Well first things first, a black toenail might not always be a fungal infection. No, it could well be blood that is sitting underneath the toenail - think back to whether you have stubbed you toe recently, had it stamped on during sports or dropped something heavy on it at home or work. If you suspect that this is the case you will need to go to the doctors and have a simple procedure to release the blood from under the toenail.

Now that we have that out of the way and you are fairly certain that you have black toenail fungus, let's look at the possible causes and treatments.

Since the fungus is infectious, it is more likely for people who expose their feet a lot to catch it and this includes those who wear sandals or those who use public changing rooms maybe at the local pool or gym.

Hot, sweaty feet can also cause bacteria to build up under the toe and lead to an infection. So if you are a keen athlete or sportperson you must wash your feet thoroughly after building up a sweat.

Now, to treat black toenail fungus you should take a holistic approach that combines both a spray or gel for the nail itself and some form of oral remedy too in order to help the body fight the infection from the inside out. Right now there is a limited time offer on Claripro nail fungus treatment and you can get a free trial pack with just the cost of P&P required. Since it barely costs you anything it is worth trying out this effective treatment for black toenail fungus.

In the rare case that you do not see any improvement after using Claripro for a month you should see the advice of your Doctor. He or she will likely prescribe you much more harsh chemical treatments which is why you are better off trying the more natural remedy that is Claripro.

It can help cure the flaky appearance of the nail, the bad smell and keratin debris along with the black spots on the bed of the nail.
