Halloween might be coming soon, but that doesn’t mean you can scare everyone away with your toenail fungus! Taking good care of your feet is crucial to staying free of an infection, but it can happen to the best of us. Before you start considering surgery and other invasive treatment options, try these at-home tricks and treats.

If you notice that your nails are becoming crumbly, thickened, or discolored (yellow or white spots) you may be dealing with nail fungus. The first thing you can try is a mixture of tea tree and orange oils. Always dilute this with olive oil or witch hazel to avoid sensitivity. These oils have antibacterial properties and have shown success with fighting infection. You can also soak your toes in vinegar and baking soda. The baking soda will help prevent the fungus from spreading, while the vinegar will kill the fungus. Coconut oil can also be applied to relieve the symptoms of a fungal infection. If these home treatments don’t do the trick, it may be time to visit Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists.

Toenail fungus is not fun to deal with. It can be embarrassing and even painful if left untreated. These microorganisms love an environment that is warm, damp, and dark. This makes your shoes an ideal location. If your feet aren’t in pristine condition, you may end up with an infection. For future prevention, you should remember to let your shoes dry out between wears, change your socks throughout the day if they get sweaty, wear water shoes in public showers, and keep all grooming tools sanitized.

For more information about treating a fungal infection, call Dr. Marco Vargas at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment at Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in Sugar Land, TX.
