Affordable and easy to use
Those who are suffering from first time or recurring loose nails and nails damaged due to a nail fungus infection knows how embarrassing and irritating it can be. People suffering from these nail conditions sometimes go to desperate measures to try and get rid of it.
Our product, Fix-4-Nails®, offers the perfect solution and the best toenail fungus treatment! What differentiates this nail fungus treatment from others on the market, is that it targets the problem directly under the nail, ensuring that the under-nail conditions are favourable for the re-growth of healthy and beautiful looking nails.
Fix-4-Nails® is affordable and easy to use. Clients simply have to apply it in the morning and evening as directed. A drop of our toenail fungus medication is administered under the detached nail onto the nail bed. The product is suited for use on both toe- and finger nails and clients can expect to see visible changes to their nails within 3-4 weeks of starting the treatment.
Talking about nail disorders can refer to any of ±80 documented conditions. To assist our clients in treating two of these embarrassing nail conditions, fungal damaged nails and/or loose nails, we manufacture a trusted formula known as Fix-4-Nails®.
A nail is loose when the nail plate becomes separated from the nail bed, which then becomes dry. This results in the growing nail plate simply overshooting the dry nail bed. Separation usually starts at the front, outer or loose edge of the nail and progresses inwards, with the sides of the nail remaining attached to the nail bed.
Toenail fungus is more common than fungus under the fingernails. The reason being that warm, sweaty feet in shoes are unable to breathe and this creates the perfect breeding place for fungi. Nail fungus infection is very contagious and will eventually infect both finger and toenails.
Along with other toenail fungus symptoms, the nail’s deterioration is the inevitable consequence of neglecting loose and/or fungal infected nails. Onychomycosis, nail fungus infection, is mostly caused by Trichophyton rubrum, a contagious fungal infection of the nail; if not stopped it destroys the nail.
Symptoms of Nail Fungus
Loose and or fungal damaged nails look very much the same and appear as a yellowish, white, or black discoloration of the nail. The technical term for loose nails is ‘onycholysis’ and that of nail fungus is ‘onychomycosis’. In the latter case, the nail may also appear thickened or brittle. In severe cases, the nail may break or completely disintegrate.
Toenails are more affected than fingernails often due to the pressure of footwear and the closed and sweaty environment which encourages fungal growth. Finding a cure is tiresome and nail fungus can spread to other areas of the hands and feet if left untreated. Effects can be cosmetic or can cause severe pain and low self-esteem.
Causes of Nail Fungus
The fungus enters through an opening on or under an injured nail. A loose nail can therefore very easily be the forerunner of fungal infection. The cavity under the loose nail, besides perhaps getting fungally infected, “may cause the nail-bed to form a granular layer of abnormal cells on its surface. After six months of detachment, this layer is likely to prevent the adhesion of any new nail tissue, possibly leading to permanent deformity.” Nail Magazine, 1 Dec 1997 Richard K Scherr
Fungal spores can remain viable in certain conditions for months and can be contracted in several ways such as wearing infected shoes, wearing wet socks, wearing ill-fitting shoes, and through an injury to the toenail that presents easy entry for the fungus.
Just killing the fungus doesn’t fix your nail!
A loose nail without a fungus and a fungus-damaged nail ‘with a ‘DEAD’ fungus is almost the same thing. The only way to repair the damage is by natural re-growth of the nail!
