Diet antiacne

The diet you follow plays an important role in the health of the organization and for the good condition of the skin. When the body functioning properly then the skin internally, performs its functions in order to be healthy, glowing and vibrant. We have mentioned many times that the emergence and worsening of acne plays a role and poor diet with fat, fried foods, fast food and the minimum consumption of vegetables and fruits, which are rich sources of components necessary for the proper functioning of the body.

Acne is a dermatological disease which until a few years mostly afflicting teenagers, but lately has come to occupy up to 85% of adults, mostly women, particularly in the western world.

How to diagnose fungal nail disease?

According to statistics, half of nail diseases - it's just a fungus. And among all diagnoses, which puts a dermatologist, the share of the fungus is necessary to a good quarter. It's hard to make a mistake, is not it?

Traditional diagnosis of onychomycosis - fungal nail diseases - reduced to a simple detection of the fungus under a microscope. It is the only test that is performed in 99% of domestic dermatological centers. However, it does not detect the causative agent in at least 20% of the cases how long to treat onychomycosis and, in any case - can not determine what kind of a fungus. There are many species of fungi, nor are they capable of causing disease. Moreover, not all of them are contagious.

The next stage of the diagnosis - inoculation of a nutrient medium and recovering the culture of the fungus with the definition of its kind. However, the low quality of these environments in the majority of laboratories allows the fungus to allocate no more than 20-30% of crops. In addition, not all technicians versed in mycology - the science of fungi - and are able to distinguish one species from another (and there are hundreds).

In our clinic, the study is performed in a specialized laboratory mycological, experienced specialists, mycologists. The success cultivating more than 60% - is the highest in Russia and one of the highest in Europe. We use culture diagnostics for the diagnosis of fungal skin lesions (foot, groin, skin folds and so forth.)

One of the world's leading dental companies Galderma offers antifungal drug Loceryl that meets all these requirements. Loceryl - a new word in the treatment of nail fungus. It is available as a varnish, which, unlike other drugs can be applied once a week. This is due to the fact that the therapeutic concentration of the active substance in the tissue of the affected nail fungus persists for 7-10 days after the first application. Active substance Zetaclear - amorolfine (5%) has a broad spectrum of antifungal activity. It is proven effective for most species of pathogenic fungi. However, even long-term use of the drug is not accompanied by systemic side effects.
