Nail fungus. I hope you never get it. It’s nasty. If you come to the nail salon with a fungus, you will be turned away if the salon has any sanitary standards at all. At LA Nails 1 we do turn anyone away with a nail fungus and ask them to have it treated before coming back.
A nail fungus can be stubborn and often difficult to treat. It can be painful, cause order and discoloration, and even cause the nail to completely fall off. You can get a nail fungus from someone else that has it. That’s why it’s important that your salon uses clean sanitized equipment on each client.
To get rid of nail fungus you have two choices. You can see a doctor or you can treat it yourself. Obviously seeing a doctor is perhaps the smartest choice. Some people however want their own cure for whatever reason. Perhaps you don’t like doctors. Perhaps you don’t wish to spend the money. Maybe you don’t have insurance that will cover treatment. If you are going to “do it yourself” seek out good advice first. Google is a good resource, but take medical advise you find online skeptically. Treatments you find online may or may not be valid and may or may not harm you. The experience of someone else who has successfully solved their nail fungus is a clue, but it doesn’t take into consideration your skin type, your nail type, your allergies, or the severity and exact condition of your nails.
Don’t fool with it. Getting treatment early is vital. The fungus can spread to other nails and to other members of your family.
