Nail Fungus question?

1303481532 21 Nail Fungus question?

Did any of you mothers develop some type of nail fungus after you had your baby? i got mine on my thumb, doesnt hurt or anything. I saw my dr already and he prescribed me lamisil and an ointment for the skin on my thumb. I was wondering how common this is…thanks.

not me, never heard of it. i'd be interested to know if anyone else has. i know yeast can over grow in some pregnant women, fungus is fungus, i guess it's possible.
gosh i hope the stuff works to get rid of it for you.

have you been going to a nail shop? I hear those places or fungus breeders. if you do you must bring your own utensils or make sure they really sterilize things. I had this issue and it was because i had gone to a terrible nail salon.

i am a nail tech ans and all my years of doing nails (17 yrs) i have never heard of pregnancy causing nail fungus. be careful taking oral medications for this, they have many side affects. keep your nail cut short and clean. i have had many older clientd with fungus on toe nails ans they have put vicks vapor rub on the nail everyday and after a while it started to go any.

It's unrelated to pregnancy.
Now do you suck your thumb? Ask as often excessive moisture and humidity create an environment prospicious for fungal infections.
