[quote=“MJB”]Tash, may we ask what you are doing to combat the problem?[/quote]Different tactics, mostly I just wear camouflage clothing. It’s not that difficult, especially now that it’s trendy and you can buy it everywhere.
Yeah, ok… seriously… I only figured it out recently, around NY’s, although I probably caught it during last summer. I went to a doctor both in Holland and here. They both gave me cremes and ointments and said that I could try that, but it’s difficult to treat, you have to be extremely consistent with it, applying twice a day to your nails and applying fungicide powder to your socks and shoes all the time, too. Do it for about 6-8 months and then hope for the best.
If it doesn’t work, there’s this oral medication that is very efficient and the treatment is short, but it’s so heavy on the liver and kidneys that you want to avoid it if at all possible.
I think I’m going to go for the meds because after treating it with the other stuff, even the new part of the nail now seems infected, so…
I hope this helps someone.
Wear slippers, folks!
Oh, and that chlorine water in pools is not for nothing so don’t be silly and try to skip over it, it’s not a rain puddle, ok?
