The plaster superseding nail enamels and ointments has been discovered
It is not a secret, fungal toenail infection is a source of discomfort for many people. And it is precisely when this fungus nestles in our nails that we realize the importance of having our feet neat and well cared for.
Summer is the season par excellence of flip-flops and sandals, but even in the coldest periods we often find ourselves barefoot: at the swimming-pool or in the gym’s locker room, or during yoga or pilates classes – one thing is certain, toenails imperfections convey a deep sense of embarrassment.
You have to know that mycosis affects almost 5% of the world population. Being a very widespread problem, you can easily guess that there are certainly several solutions to help you solve it.
The most common methods for treating fungal toenail infections
First of all it is worth ascertaining that the foot has actually come into contact with the fungus. The fungal nail infection (or onychomycosis) is generally identified by a yellowing of the nail. Another symptom is the thickening of the surface that sometimes involves a detachment of the nail at the ends.
The best solution to have a reliable diagnosis is however to ask for advice from your pharmacist or to perform a mycological examination.
Once it has been verified that it is really a matter of fungal toenail infections, it is possible to choose among different treatment methods.
So, are there any alternatives to nail enamel and ointments to treat fungal toenail infections?
The good news is that there is a new method that allows you to manage the situation in a very convenient and fast way. As a matter of fact, the great inventions are precisely those that can provide the solution to a problem, simplifying the life of the people facing it.
We are talking about Micomed®, a small disc-shaped patch, which contains “Urea”, a chemical substance present in the organism of human beings and in that of several animals.
The compound present in the patch, once placed in contact with the nail, weakens the sick part, resulting in the following selective detachment of the area that shall then be removed by cutting.
If you want to quickly treat fungal toenail infections with Micomed®, then follow these simple procedures:
- Have the affected part take a bath in warm water for about 10 minutes.
- Dry the foot with care.
- Remove a disc from its transparent support and apply it directly on the nail.
- If the disc is larger than the mycotic nail, reduce it to the right size so as to cover only the surface to be treated. The disc can be easily cut out.
- Use the occlusive plaster to fix and protect the disc.
Please note that it is advisable to replace the disc and the plaster every day for a treatment ranging from 1 to 3 weeks and in any case until the mycosis is completely removed.
