Fungal infections under your nails are difficult to get rid of. They cause your nails to thicken discolour and flake, especially your toe nails, and most fungal creams don’t work. Some doctors will take a nail clipping and send it to a lab and may put you on tablets for up to 6 months to clear up the infection. Generally, fungal infections under the nails are harmless, even though they don’t look too good.
Psoriasis- for some people, psoriasis does not appear as red patches on the skin, but as joint pain or pits in the nails. Get your doctor to check it out.
White spots on the nails are not a sign of calcium deficiency my friends, but usually a sign of them been bumped and bashed around. If you are a keen gardener, or do a large amount of manual work, the only thing you can do is to try and protect your nails under some thick gloves.
Ingrown toe nails- we have discussed this in detail before, but it is often how they get cut that is causing the problem. Don’t cut the side, so try to cut them relatively straight, and make sure your toes are knocking against the front of your shoes. If you struggle to cut your toenails, treat yourself to a good pedicure once a month, and this should help to sort them out.
At my last Fabulosity Party, which I host monthly, introducing friends to Fabulous people, products and services, I gave away loads of Link Pharmacy supplements, including their “Hair Skin and Nails” Supplement, and I have had endless compliments. My friends are telling me about their nails growing out thicker and faster, and even their eyelashes growing….which is fabulous feedback! All the Link supplements are available at Link Pharmacies nationwide.
