Hello Ridang Ayu,
Nail fungus or onychomycosis is a disorder that occurs in the nails due to a fungal infection. Fungal infections are different from viral and bacterial infections, because they are more difficult to develop and take longer. Symptoms of onychomycosis are:
Nail discoloration becomes yellowish white, gray Nails become brittle. Thickening of the nail layer The purpose of pulling out the nails is so that the ointment used can touch the bottom of the nail and the nail bed properly. Pulling your nails doesn't get rid of the yeast infection right away, as the fungus may have gotten into the surrounding skin. In your case, the doctor has given you oral anti-fungal drugs that will work to eradicate the fungal infection systemically (whole body) and antibiotic ointments (treat secondary infections that may occur in the wound where the nail is removed). The use of anti-fungal ointments alone for severe cases of onychomycosis is of little use. Mushroom treatment is generally longer, 10-14 days, or more. We recommend that you follow the instructions to take the medicine from the doctor who gives it. Do not just stop the anti-fungal medication when the symptoms on the nails are somewhat better, you should keep taking it until it runs out according to the instructions.
To avoid onychomycosis, several things can be done, including:
Clipper nails regularly, as much as possible do not exchange nail clippers Dry your feet before using socks or shoes Use clean footwear, change your socks regularly Wash your feet regularly Use an anti-fungal spray or powder Avoid going barefoot in public. may be useful.
