When talking about bad fungus infections, I always refer to the time when my brother came home from an outreach program complaining that his nails were feeling strange. Being a nurse, he was often sent to poverty-stricken areas to offer assistance to those in need. Those areas were not the cleanest places to work in. At that time, we didn't give his complaint much thought, thinking that as he was in the medical field, someone at work should be able to help him out. That proved to be a mistake.
By the next week, he had no nails.
This is often the situation when dealing with fungus infections, especially those in the nails. Since they are easy to hide and deny, people often do just that. The thing is, small problems often lead to bigger problems, and problems, once big enough, turn out to be very difficult to deny and solve. This is also true of full-blown fungus infections.
Fungi are live organisms that feed on organic materials. We see them often as mushrooms when we walk around parks, and one would notice that these tend to grow in dark and damp areas. This is especially true, and since they feed on organic matter, they can also live and grow on the skin and nails. It becomes difficult to treat though as some of the prescribed treatments can also affect the healthy tissue of the patient, causing discomfort and lengthening the healing process.
It was a good thing that a friend recommended Nail-Rx by Native Remedies. My brother didn't even want to try it at first even when he was given a free bottle, to begin with, but with him losing what else was remaining of his nails, we decided to give it a shot. Applying the medicine three times a day directly to the area, we waited for the effects.
Effects don't come overnight, and additional applications do not speed up the healing process. Some relief was experienced upon application, but effects were noticeable in the middle of the second week. The tissue on the nail bed looked healthier, and my brother wasn't as irritable as he was before then. Things eventually normalized, and now he's back to his regular self, healthy nails and all.
It really isn't pleasant when one experiences bad fungus infections, but its something that most people go through. Ignoring the situation wouldn't let the whole thing go away though. Seek medical help, and faithfully do what needs to be done. The sooner a problem is addressed, the sooner things will get back to normal, and that is just what we need in our life.
