As you may have heard by now, there are countless ways to become infected with nail fungus. Even though some people think otherwise, anyone can become infected, It does not matter how old or healthy you are. That said, health often does play a part in whether you are more likely to become infected or not. This may seem like common sense, but the healthier you are, the less likely you are to become infected with nail fungus. And when it comes to health, injuries play a role as well.
When your nails get injured they will no longer be as healthy as they should be. Whether the injury is terrible or seemingly non-existent, it could still lead to fungus. If you get your foot crushed by a bowling ball you are obviously going to a have much greater chance at becoming infected than someone who just scrapes one of their toes, but either way you have increased your chances of becoming infected with nail fungus.
People don’t like injuries, whether they are to the finger or toe. But these injuries tend to go away on their own. Nail fungal infections will not. They always require treatment, no matter how much you will wish that they just disappear. As a result, it is very important for you to be extremely cautious when you think you may have a greater chance of becoming injured. If you do end up becoming injured, do everything you can to heal that injury before it begins to get worse and potentially results in a nail fungus infection.
