Fungal infections in feet

Fungal infections such as athletes foot can lead to intense itching and cracked, blistered or peeling areas of the skin.

If left untreated it can spread to the toenails causing thickening and yellowing of the nail. Fungal infections are highly contagious so avoid handling and do not use the same towel for your feet as the rest of your body. You can buy over-the-counter remedies but nail infections do not often respond to topical treatments so you may need oral medication. See a podiatrist if your infection persists.

Fungal nails can be reduced and then covered with a false nail while it is growing out using a technique call Wilde Pedique
