Muscle cramps occur when there is an involuntary and sudden contraction of a couple of muscles. Anytime you are caught in that sudden contraction, it becomes clearer to you that the pains can be severe. It is not considered a fatal bout of pain but it leads to a momentary inability to move the part of the body affected.
Onychomycosis, best known as toenail fungus, is a condition caused by an abnormal pH level of the skin. It can also result from the build-up of sweat in shoes, bad foot hygiene, wearing synthetic socks, and a weak immune system. The condition is characterized by inflammation, yellowing of the toenail, abnormal pains of the toe and toenail, swelling, thickening, and crumbling.
An abscess is pus that collects in pockets in many different places around the outside of the body. It is usually a thick fluid that contains lots of white blood cells, dead tissue, and bacteria. The pus may be yellow or green, have a bad smell, or appear to be thick. It is usually the result of a small infection, which causes the immune system to set off white blood cells and other antibodies to combat the infection. Sometimes, this causes tissue to die, which forms a cavity. The cavity becomes larger and larger and sometimes the pus from the infection cannot escape.
Epsom salt is a type of healthy bath salt. It is made up of the two minerals sulfate and magnesium. It often looks like chunky bits of sea salt, but the two are not the same thing. By using Epsom salts, our body takes in some of the minerals it offers. Humans are often lacking in magnesium sulfate, which is part of the reason why Epsom salts can be so helpful.
