All fungal infections are combined into one group of diseases - mycoses. They can vary in symptoms and the infection routes, but, and treatment of nail fungus on his feet, and the fight against fungal skin lesions are conducted according to a single plan diagnosis. His every step is aimed at stopping the multiplication of Candida and Trichophyton that devour the healthy tissue of the nail plate and the cells of the epidermis.
Past medical studies identified the disease as onychomycosis, since the bulk of its localization - toenails. Infection is omnipresent and penetrates the healthy nail through tiny lesions. For social reasons, playing the role of the entrance gate to fungi include: Wearing general shoes; Active baths, pools, saunas; Pedicure salons; Holidays in summer camps.
The symptoms of the disease, doctors have resorted to sharing features in the forms of onychomycosis. At present, there are four main types of the disease:
1.Distal - the most common. Called red trihofitonom, Candida, and, in rare cases, mold fungi. Under him the nail plate thickens, acquires a yellowish color, moving away from the bed and exposed to bacterial contamination, change in color to a dirty-brown or greenish.
2.White superficial view of leaves on the nail plate of white spots, which gradually merge. The nails become thinner, crumble, painted in gray or brown. However, the infection does not go on the skin and does not affect the nail bed.
3.Proximal subungual form is rare. It is characterized by an active detachment of the nail plate.
4.Total dystrophic form follows from complications of the distal onychomycosis. When it comes complete nail loss, leading to irreversible destruction of the nail plate tissue throughout the area.
Scientific studies have shown that the fungus toenails is inextricably linked to skin infections such as psoriasis, red shingles, eczema. Their presence should serve as a signal for monitoring the nail feet.
In the construction of the treatment plan experts rely on several factors: the general condition of the patient, the type of agent, the vastness of the destruction of human and financial capacity.
