What is the ion charge of alkali earth metals?
What is the term for an element in Group IA 1?
Group 1A (or IA) of the periodic table are the alkali metals: hydrogen (H), lithium (Li), sodium (Na), potassium (K), rubidium (Rb), cesium (Cs), and francium (Fr). The name comes from the fact that when these metals or their oxides are dissolved in water, a basic (alkaline) solution results.
Do you need to see a doctor for nail fungus?
Anytime you think you have a fungal nail infection, or any nail problem, and treating it at home doesn’t help, see your doctor or podiatrist (foot doctor). The sooner you go, the sooner your doctor can help. Fungal nail infections can get worse over time.

Should you wear socks with toenail fungus?
