  3. Arthritic or weak hands makes holding clippers difficult.

Why should i get my feet checked?

I believe we should all get regular foot checks even if its just once a year with your locally Foot Health Practitioner.

You can often diagnose yourself if you have a corn or callus, wart or nail fungus infection.

but what you may not know is if your feet are showing symptoms,

for conditions including diabetes, poor circulation conditions or arthritis.

Worst Factors about Kohm Toenail Clippers For Seniors
  • They do not have a safety latch to keep blades closed when not in use.
  • Rubber handles could be thicker.

I believe the poor comments out way the excellent reviews.

Pretty much the overall feedback from patients who have purchased the Kohm CP- 900 clippers say

“they are the best clippers they have brought and they do an excellent safe job”

Choosing the right tool for any job is always my top priority and i can be sure you will not be disappointed when you buy a pair too.

Alternative Nippers worth considering are the World No.1 Extra Large Toenail Clippers by 777.

toenail clippers for handicappedIf you prefer to use square ended nippers rather then scissor like clippers,

then choose these, they are a excellent quality solid made pair of precision nippers that cut smoothly and will defiantly trim thick nails easily.

Also they are extra large so they make them top on my list for toenail clippers for seniors.

Holding them is comfortable and they have a non slip easy grip design so it makes life simple to reach your feet.

And if you have weak or arthritic hands they are light to hold and not too much pressure is needed for the actual cut.

That will keep your nails trim and smooth.

How do you fix yellow toenails using over the counter solutions

Im not going to rant here but…..

Do not waste your time on expensive solutions like,

Curanail, dr scholls, Excilor

Sorry but in over 15 years working in the foot industry i have never seen a patient cure their fungal nails with these products!

Products i have used successfully with patients for nail fungus include.

Nail Fungus Treatment by Amoils

Gehwol Nail & Skin Cream

Daktarin Antibacterial Cream

Tea Tree Oil

Loceryl Topical Solution

How do you fix yellow toenails using laser treatment

A new treatment for yellow and fungal nails,

Its pretty pricey to have done as only podiatry clinics offer this service.

The laser is positioned over the infected nails and the laser emits high doses of light which focuses on the bacteria within the nails and destroys the nail fungus.

Several treatments are necessary.

Do not use antibiotics to fix your toenail fungus

Antibiotics cures yellow white thick toenails,

But at the expense of your gut and kidneys!

Every patient i have met who has gone down this route has had to take medication from the Doctor for at least 6 months.

And when you stop the pills the fungus just returns.

So i believe this is not a serious option to heal yellow nails caused by fungus.

Which ever yellow nail treatment you choose to fix your nails with,

I hope you get the results you want asap!

7 Most Effective Shoe Deodorizer Sprays That Will Destroy Odour

7 Most Effective Shoe Deodorizer Sprays That Will Destroy Odour

Do you suffer from stinky hot sweaty feet feet?

Are you sick to death of people complaining about your stinky shoes and want to seriously cure yourself of this embarrassment.

This post well not only explain what products are the most effective shoe deodorizer you should use for your feet,

Doing a few simple changes to your daily foot hygiene habits can eliminate stinky feet and prevent any embarrassing moments for you!

And prevent your shoes needing deodorising in the first place!.

Why do your feet and shoes smell in the first place?

Foot odour can create an unpleasant smell, which is caused and produced by bacteria on your skin.

The bacteria on the skin is broken down by our acids in your sweat.

The result Bromhidrosis = Sweaty feet

If you suffer from excessive sweating you may have a condition called Hyperhidrosis.

This conditions makes you sweat more than your bodies natural temperature needs too.

If you suffer from excessive sweating you most likely will have smelly feet too.

Why do my shoes smell?

When you sweat especially excessively your shoes and socks will absorb your sweat,

The sweat than attracts bacteria and then the bacteria releases the unpleasant smell.

7 BEST remedies to STOP excessive sweating & Smells

most effective shoe deodorizer

 

  1. Washing your armpits daily with a antibacterial soap.
  2. Having a warm bath or shower every day to wash away your bacteria.
  3. Wear Clothes with natural fibres like silk, cotton, wool allow your skin to breath, this will allow the bacteria break down quicker.
  4. Apply a body deodorant or antiperspirant after washing.
  5. Shaving your legs and armpits so the sweat can evaporate easier.
  6. Wear clean fresh clothes everyday , including pants and bras.
  7. Reduce your spicy food in take, inc. garlic, also eating red meat produces more body odour.

Surgery for sweaty feet?

It may also be possible for the sweat glands to be drawn out from the deeper skin layers using liposuction

– a technique that’s often used to remove unwanted body fat.

Another option is a type of surgery called endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy (ETS),

which uses keyhole surgery to destroy the nerves that control sweating.

During ETS, the surgeon makes two or three small incisions under each arm.

A tiny camera (endoscope) is inserted through one of the incisions so the surgeon can see the inside of your armpit on a monitor.

The surgeon will insert small surgical tools through the other incisions, allowing them to cut the nerves.

Alternatively, a thin electrode that emits an electrical current will be used to destroy the nerves.

Risks associated with ETS include damage to nearby arteries or nerves,

and compensatory sweating (increased sweating from other areas of the body).

You should fully discuss the risks of the procedure with your surgeon beforehand. *

Toenail Fungus Pictures Early Stage Best Treatment Plan…

Question of the day #askthefootpainreliefexpert 

what does toenail fungus look like

What does toenail fungus look like?
Toenail Fungus Pictures Early Stage ….

Some of the most common questions i get asked as a Foot Health Practitioner is,

what does toenail fungus look like and how did i get toenail fungus,

I usually show them these Toenail Fungus Pictures Early Stage s online.

Onychomychosis – Fungus of the nails

Is a bacterial infection that originated in our nail beds and you can get fungal toe and finger nails

What It Looks Like With Toenail Fungus Pictures Early Stage

what does toenail fungus look like

  • Nails become very thick especially on the nail tips
  • Discoloured in appearance
    (White lines and spots)
    (Black/ Brown Lines and spots)
    (Yellow)
    (Large white patches)
  • Toenails become flaky and heavily calloused
  • White stuff under the toenails
  • Ridged and growth is upwards rather then outwards

Risk factors

  • Toenails become very thick and hard to cut with regular clippers
  • Thickness of nails may cause pressure and pain on your nail bed
  • A Foul Odour or Smell is caused by the bacteriatoenails smells like cheese
  • Toenail Fungus can spread to other toenails
  • Toenail may fall off from soft mushy dead fungus growth
  • Further infections to the skin and blood supply

Diabetics should seek immediate advice from a Foot Health Professional or Doctor to prevent infections to the foot.

Causes 

The causative pathogens of onychomycosis are all in the fungus kingdom and include dermatophytes, Candida (yeasts), and nondermatophytic molds.

Dermatophytes are the fungi most commonly responsible for onychomycosis in the temperate western countries;

while Candida and nondermatophytic molds are more frequently involved in the tropics and subtropics with a hot and humid climate.
Resource wikipedia

The 3 most common reason for toenail fungus i believe are:

  1. Poor footwear that is made of plastics or non breathable material
  2. Sweaty feet and athletes foot infections
  3. Nail Varnish

Diagnosis

It is possible to have a microscopic biopsy using scrapping of your toenails but a visual diagnoses is the most common.

And this is what i do.

Also to be honest if your toenail shows the signs and symptoms as listed above,

I would say you most likely one of the 10% of the population that have toenail fungus.

 Toenail Fungus Pictures Early Stage to Late Stages

  1. white stuff under my toenail
    The nail appears to have white/ yellow stains on the nail. Often the colour starts at the base of the nail upwards.

 

what does toenail fungus look like
The Nail may split in large sections and a new soft flaky nail in found growing underneath

 

white stuff under toenail
Toenails become thick and hard to cut
what does toenail fungus look like
Yellow patches appear as the fungus on the nail bed gets worse, the nail will soon split and begin to SMELL.

What now?

So you have toenail fungus infection what can you do today to solve and treat the problem.

I would suggest you take immediate action and this is my personal treatment options i give to my patients.

But I would always recommend you talk to a health professional if you have any long term illness or conditions such as diabetes.

Cure nail fungus naturallyYou should use a topical solution such as the Amoils Nail Fungus Treatment.

I like this treatment option because it is non aggressive and contains a strong powerful mixture of natural ingredients that will penetrate deep in the toenail bed and kill off the fungus from the root.

As the toenail is treated your nail may either fall off if the nail has lots of soft fungus underneath  it or you will notice as the new nail grows a pink healthy one coming from the cuticle.

You apply the oil 2 times a day and quickly the discolouration goes.

Other options to treat toenail fungus include using Vicks Vapour rub !

Yes apply to the toenails daily for 3 weeks and see a visible difference, the only problem this may cause the nail to lift off as it softens the bed quickly.

A new nail will grow if this happens.  Oh and it stinks of Viks!

Also if you just have a mild case of toenail fungus i like to try my patients on a bacterial cream like Daktarin or Mycota these are for Athletes foot conditions.

Ignore the instructions as such! rub the cream into the nails and around the skin of the toe. Max 10 days.

This is a good treatment when you have toenail fungus caused by acrylic nails and toenail varnish.

It draws out the discolouration fast.

Always read the instructions before applying.

Read Reviews And Testimonials Here Amoils Nail Fungus 

Final point

Another tip which you should do when you are treating your toenail fungus is too keep your nails short.

This will help them grow the fungus out fast and encourage the nails to grow quicker.

Be patient fungus toenails are not cured overnight.

Please don’t expect miracles fungus takes many months to grow before you start to notice it on your nails.

It may take weeks and even months to totally heal so be patient.

So choose a product and plan that is easy to apply to your daily routine and one that will not only kill the fungus but protect you from the fungus returning.
