Hi Everyone! Aisling back again continuing on with my blog series exploring everything there is to do with fungal nail infection. It might not seem like the most glamorous of topics to explore but ensuring that us ladies and gentlemen never have to experience the invading yellow thickening brittle monster that is fungal nail and retaining healthy baby pink glossy nails is kind of glamorous, don’t you think?
Today I’m looking at possibly the most important information there is to know on preventing fungal nail and that is it’s causes. As always, all of the information I’ve sourced to write this blog and every other blog on my site has been sourced from an established laser and skin clinic. For this blog, I took to Havana Skin Clinic Let’s have a look at the facts!
Fungal Nail Infection & What Causes It
Dermatophytes, Candida (yeast) and non-dermatophyte moulds are the fungal organisms that cause onychomycosis (fungal nail infection). Patients typically get the disease in warm, damp and moist places like the gym shower and swimming pools. Borrowing shoes or socks from a person with nail fungus may also cause the disease.
I don’t know about you but what I’m taking from this is that wearing flip flops in the gym shower is a must!
