Toenail decay cure

Well, I would say that you doctor is partially right. As long as your nail bed is healthy, you do not have cause to worry. However, when your nail starts to pull away from the nail bed, moisture gathers between your nail and nail bed. This increases your chances of getting a fungal or yeast infection. Make sure that you trim the affected nails. Make sure that your nails are cut short or else the slightest bum will cause your nil to lift up further, which will only aggravate your condition. . It is important that you keep your nails as square as possible and just a little rounded at the edges. Do not cut your nails too deeply on the sides as this can lead to extremely painful ingrowths and will leave your nails vulnerable to fungus and yeasts.

Soak your feet in a tub of water to which a few pinches of Epsom salts have been added. This will help to prevent fungal infections. Use a soft brush to gently clean your toenails. If your problem is caused by tight shoes or trauma to the nail itself, you can use a band aid and a dab of an anti-fungal cream to protect it as well as give your nail the time to grow out quickly and painlessly.
