A friend of mine uses CBD oil at bedtime and says it helps control the anxious thoughts that used to keep her awake at night. I have a similar problem and want to try it, but I am nervous because it comes from marijuana. I would appreciate your opinion on this.
Oral antifungal drugs may also be indicated, and in severe cases, the infected nails may need to be surgically removed. Laser therapy is another option, although study results of its efficacy are mixed. I suggest you first try the DMSO nail solution, compounded by Physicians Preference Pharmacy . Talk to your doctor (it require a prescription) or call the pharmacy at 281-828-9088 to learn more. Let me how it works for you.

That’s why I want to tell you about a specially compounded nail solution that many of our guests have had good success with. It contains the two most effective topical antifungal medications plus tea tree oil, a traditional remedy for fungal infections, and biotin, which helps with healthy nail growth. The “magic” of this solution is DMSO, which acts as a carrier to penetrate the nail and deliver the active ingredients deep into the nail where they are needed.
Fungal infections of the nails, officially called onychomycosis, are extremely common and notoriously hard to cure. Over-the-counter products that you apply to the nails are often ineffective, as you have experienced. Prescription topical antifungals work better but do not always eradicate the problem.
The most common types of fungal skin infections are:
The best way to prevent fungal infections but a wide range of skin conditions is to maintain proper and regular hygiene to keep your body clean.
Make sure your moist and warm areas of the body are always clean to avoid fungal infections.
Maintain proper and regular hygiene!
Nowadays, topical formulations based on cannabinoids contain GLA or gamma-linolenic acid, a proven compound for restoring proper skin moisturization. If you have a skin inflammation problem, applying a topical CBD solution might help provide relief.
When all three cannabinoids team up with terpenes, the CBD compounds travel faster through your bloodstream, providing a full range of benefits for your skin. Apply your CBD oil topically on regions with a fungal infection. If your condition is more severe, you can also consider taking CBD oil both orally and topically for more bioavailability and faster results.
Use mild hygienic products!
Since there is an array of powerful CBD oil products for treating skin conditions, it’s time to tap into the many benefits that these products can offer.
CBD has both antibacterial and antifungal properties that can be amazingly medicinal, effective, and therapeutic. Hemp-derived terpenes are lipophilic – a property that makes them highly effective antifungals.
