Everything you need to know about toenail fungus
People have suffered from nail fungus for many years due to a lack of information or just because they didn’t find effective products that can truly restore a good nail condition. Information about foot care has always been very generic and wouldn’t go any further than ‘wear sandals in public shower areas’ or ‘make sure to dry your feet after showering’… but nail fungus is a serious problem and goes beyond that.
The first thing is how to recognize if you have nail fungus. A foot infection usually occurs when you can see/feel changes in your toenails:
– Pain on one or both sides of the toenail
– Redness around the toenail
– Pain when standing
– Changes in nail color
– The nail becomes thicker, among other things
If it is not treated, it will not go away
These symptoms may become worse over time because of uncomfortable footwear, physical activity, and improper trimming of the nails. But also, untreated conditions will persist and can spread to unaffected, healthy nails.
At this point, you may be wondering if nail fungus is contagious? The answer is it depends on the treatment as well as personal hygiene. For instance, changing your socks if your feet get sweaty (moisture facilitates the spread of infections to other nails). It is recommended to wash your socks at 60°C (140°F) and disinfect your shoes when using them without socks.
We usually believe that nail fungus is something temporary and is not serious at all, but a fungal nail infection (onychomycosis) is a mycotic infection caused by fungal invasion of the nail structure and the damage can eventually affect nail growth, shape, size, and, consequently, predispose the nail to infection.
At Imperial Feet we have a complete line of foot care products formulated to treat the infection and prevent its spread, offering guaranteed results.

You might be thinking about prevention or possible situations, like:

Discover our Shoe and Sock Spray, an excellent protective barrier with glycerin anti-drying effects.
– If I have toenail fungus can I get a pedicure?
The answer is: Yes!
But you must apply a nail polish that allows the nail to breathe so the healing process will not be disrupted. This can be achieved with our line of nail polish with oxygen available in different colors: nude, pink, purple, or red according to your occasion.
– What can I do if the fungus has returned?
Prevention is the Key!
Fungal nail infections often return after treatment. Consider these self-care strategies to avoid re-infection:
1. Before going to bed, wash and dry your feet carefully.
2.Wear sandals or open-toed shoes made of materials that allow moisture to escape.
3. Allow shoes to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing them again.
4. Wear socks. Change them if your feet get sweaty.
5. Do not share nail files or clippers, socks, towels, or any other personal items.
6. And the #1 rule!: Wear flip-flops or shower shoes in wet public places, such as locker rooms or showers.
Don’t worry, you are not alone in this and the good news is that now you are aware of how and where the fungal nail infection starts, and which fungal nail treatment is the best, the fungal nail infection will definitely go away!
