Polishing Fungal Nails? Please Don’t!

Comments (0)

Have you ever found yourself in this situation? Your toenail is looking a bit strange; you think it might be fungus but aren’t positive. You keep telling yourself, “I will go to the doctor when I have the chance.” However, time passes quickly and you never end up seeing a physician. What is your thought to hide your scary looking toenail? Nail polish!

Although nail polish might seem like a quick fix, it is actually quite harmful to your fungal nail. The main ingredient in most nail polish is formaldehyde. Formaldehyde actually acts like food for the fungus, so it is very bad to polish fungal nails.

In essence, if you put most polishes on fungal nails, you are just ensuring the fungus sticks around even longer! While shopping for nail polishes, I recommend going all natural. Nail polishes like Dr.'s Remedy's doesn't contain toxic ingredients and is enriched with natural occurring elements like tea-tree oil, garlic bulb extract, wheat protein, and Vitamins C and E. These enriching ingredients strengthen and protect your nails against fungus, discoloration, cracking, and brittleness. Another great advantage is that they come in fun and flirty colors for every occasion.

So the next time your nails are looking discolored and brittle, stay away from the typical nail polishes. If you are going to maintain healthy nails, stick to natural products like the Dr.'s Remedy’s brand.
