Soften Toenails

If you have soften toenails, chances are that you are that you have toenail fungus.

How to Prevent and Treat Soften Toenails

According to recent statistics released by a University in California, there are approximately 20% of Americans suffering from soften toenails. Whilst this number may seem quite trivial to some people, unknown to them is that roughly 5% of those infected go about their daily business without seeking any kind of treatment. This in turn increases the risks of spreading the infection. As such, if you would like to learn more about how to prevent and cure soften toenails, you will find the information provided herein quite interesting.

But, before looking at the different types of treatment to eliminate this type of foot fungus, let’s first of all look at some of the causes of softened toenail and why most people find the infection stubborn.

What causes softened toenail?

Toenail soft can be caused by one of the following factors:

  • Walking barefoot in public areas, for example, gym and pool side.
  • Sharing personal sanitation items such as towels with an infected person.
  • Wearing shoes for prolonged period of time.
  • Putting on tight-fitting shoes.
  • Not drying your feet properly before putting on shoes.

Whilst there are several forms of home remedies for softened toenail foot fungus as well as over-the-counter medications, most people still find it hard to get rid of toenail soft fungus infection. This is because they provide the fungus with a favorable condition to thrive in. Consequently, to avoid contracting this infection, you need to avoid the above instances.

How to treat softened toenail fungus

The good news is that getting rid of soft toenail foot fungus infection is not that difficult. You can find medications from virtually any shop you walk into. However, you need to first of all see a general practitioner (GP) who will then determine whether the infection is soft toenails fungus infection or an ingrown toenail fungus. Whilst using home remedies to treat softened toenail fungus, do not expect instant results. It may take some time before you start noticing the results. You need to exercise patience and stick to the treatment as prescribed.

Home remedies for softened toenail fungus

Soak your feet in vinegar footbath for at least 20 minutes on daily basis. Thereafter, wipe the toenails properly and clip off the borders of the infected nails using nail clippers. Whereas doctors discourage people suffering from toenail fungus infection from using nail polish, you can use anti-fungus nail polish to treat the soften nails.
