Artificial Nails and Preventing Nail Fungus and its cure
Nail fungus is generally called onychomycosis It occurs more frequently in toenails.
When finger nails are overlaid with the plastic of artificial nails, a barrier is made to the normal air flow. Fungus always grows in dark and moist places. Artificial nails can get loosened from the nail they are pasted to and an air hole can be created between both nails, that allows water to get entrapped. This gives a great breeding ground for the nail fungus to grow.
The worst problem with nail fungus infections is that they are really hard to cure and may also repeat again easily.
Nail fungus mostly grows at the tip of the nail where it touches the skin.
Nail fungus can seem as discolored, thickened, ragged or brittle at the ends of the nail.
