To date, fungal diseases (or mycosis) are quite common. Modern pharmacology offers a fairly large number of drugs to help fight this unpleasant disease. Many choose Iodinol to cure fungi. How effective is this remedy?
Nail fungus: causes and symptoms
Fungal diseases are caused by disease-causing fungi affecting the skin and nails. Infection occurs, as a rule, by contact of a sick person with a healthy one, for example, through common shoes (slippers), towels, etc.
High risk of picking up fungal skin lesions in public places such as a bath, sauna, swimming pool, gym.
Symptoms of a fungal nail infection are:
- thickening of the nail plate;
- nail color change;
- nail destruction, crumbling and stratification.
A natural question arises: how to speed up recovery and find an inexpensive but effective way to fight mycosis? An alternative to modern ointments and solutions can be iodinol, as well as treatment by folk methods, which is available to everyone.
Iodinol from nail fungus: reviews and recommendations
Iodinol is a solution that has antiseptic properties and is used for topical external use.
There are practically no specific contraindications to the use of iodinol, as it is well tolerated by patients. This drug is contraindicated only to people suffering from thyroid abnormalities - hyperthyroidism (iodine in the body is produced in excess in this disease), as well as in case of personal intolerance to ethyl alcohol. In the latter case, it is recommended to use alcohol-free iodine solutions.
For each disease has its own ways of using Iodinol: lotions, rinsing, washing, compresses. In order to obtain the best result, it is recommended to start treatment with Iodinol in the early stages of the development of the disease and carry it out regularly.
Methods of using Iodinol in the treatment of fungus
As mentioned above, Iodinol is an effective medicine to fight the fungal infections of the nail plates on the legs and arms. For this purpose, it is most often used as a lotion.
Lotions with Yodinol
- Iodinol solution;
- cotton wool or cotton pad;
- food film and plaster.
Mode of application:
- Take a piece of fleece or cotton pad and moisten it abundantly in Yodinol.
- Apply cotton wool to the sick nail and wrap with cling film or package. The film is fixed on the foot with adhesive tape.
- We change lotions twice a day: early in the morning and before bedtime.
Note that the duration of treatment with Iodinol should not last more than five days. Such compresses soften the nail well and facilitate easy removal. After 5 days you need to take a break and apply a cotton wool dipped in oil (preferably olive oil) for 2-3 days to the nail. If the disease has not been started, then during this time the nail damaged by the fungus comes off and in its place a healthy one begins to grow.
Most people who have tried this treatment on themselves leave only positive feedback on the healing properties of Iodinol.
Iodinol in folk recipes
It is clear that the treatment of fungal infections should be comprehensive and regular. There are many recipes of traditional medicine that help in the fight against mycosis. They are recommended to be used in combination with the main treatment, that is, in combination with medicines.
Recipe ointment from celandine with iodinol against fungus
- Iodinol solution;
- celandine (dry powder).
Mode of application:
- Mix celandine with Yodinol until gruel is formed.
- Attach the resulting gruel on the nail and wrap a film.
It is better to do such compresses daily for 5-6 days. During this time, old nails should get off without serious consequences, and in their place new ones will begin to grow.
In order to speed up the healing process, in parallel with compresses, it is recommended to use soap and soda baths for the feet 2 times a week and lubricate the nails with antifungal ointment.
It is rather difficult to get rid of the fungus: its spores withstand both low temperatures and high temperatures equally well. In order to avoid long-term treatment, it is better to take care of your health in advance and take the following preventive measures:
- never take someone else's shoes;
- do not use other people's pedicure accessories;
- regularly change socks, tights;
- use only your own towel;
- try not to allow the creation of a "greenhouse effect" in the shoes, the skin must breathe;
- when visiting a bath, sauna or swimming pool you need to have your own slippers.
Finally, I would like to say that you should not carelessly treat such a disease as nail fungus. By itself, it will not be cured, and the more neglected the process of nail damage is, the more difficult it will be to fight. In addition, the nails affected by the fungus do not look quite aesthetically pleasing and will not add to your attractiveness. Therefore, when detecting the first signs of a fungus, you must immediately begin treatment.
