You looked at your toes and toenails today while running though your daily routine and noticed something unusual. They don’t look as fresh as they usually do and you decide to take a closer look. Upon closer inspection you notice that they are dingy and off color and one in particular is turning color. You know for sure that you haven’t injured your nails and you certainly did not notice it after your last visit too the nail salon, so what exactly are you seeing?
Welcome to the toenail fungus world. Like millions of Americans, you have just joined the ranks of the masses. When I say masses, I am talking about 6 million Americans who are affected with this disease, approximately 30 million worldwide.
Toenail discoloration is the first sign of toenail fungus. Possibly you have one or more nails affected and it gets worst. It spreads from human to human like the plague. It invades your nail beds, discolors the nails and can turn very nasty. So nasty in fact that the nail can eventually root off your feet. It can distort, twist and cause ingrown toenails and its out of sight ugly to look at.
Toenail discoloration – What color is ugly?
Toenail fungus comes in all colors. The most popular is yellow, green, brown and even white.
It starts at the nail bed then works itself down the nail until the entire nail is an ugly color. It can look spotted, white on green or any combination of other colors could emerge. Advanced cases look white or completely white in color and show signs of a serious deformation of the nail. Splitting, cracking, bumpy, lumpy, scaly, thick and even total loss of the nail best describes this condition.
What can I do about toenail discoloration?
Early signs of toenail discoloration should be attended too immediately. The longer you wait the worst it gets so please don’t wait for it too get better because it wont get better on its own. Its a disease of the nail which harbors bacteria (spores) and can be transmitted to others so be very careful.
You should seek an immediate solution, one that treats the condition naturally. There are quite a few products on the market that can be purchased without having to visit a doctor. These include natural ingredients but be sure to choose a product that includes something like Tree Tee Oil, Lemon grass extra and Vitamin E oils, to name a few. Usually you will find a fast cure using an over the counter product instead of reverting to a prescription ( not recommended), that could harm you.
Do yourself a favor! Take control of your discolored toenails before it take control of you. I cannot stress this enough. Being an ex toenail fungus sufferer for 2yrs I can tell you that this is no laughing matter. You heard it from June Holland a real person who finally got rid of it.
