I had toe fungus for probably about three days and I was looking for someway to get rid of it! then I saw someone saying you can put bleach on it. so just today was sitting on the couch and was looking at my nail and I completely removed it with no pain at all. under it was like a black green color which was the fungus. then I remembered the comment I read about the bleach and how it kills the fungus. so I got a small bowl of bleach dipped a Cotten ball and put it just on the fungus and repeated several times. very quickly I did notice positive results. afterwards I thought just to be safe I should use nail clippers and cut off the dead fungus. (doing this also had no pain) there is a little bit o blood when you cut it off so have something to clean that up. so now I’m hoping when my nail grows back it will be heathy again! Hope this helps someone!!
Toenail fungus is an unsightly condition caused by yeast and other types of fungi. When a fungus infects the toenail, the result is yellowing and thickening of the nail. Eventually, the nail may begin to crumble, and the area beneath it may emit a foul smell. Doctors often prescribe oral medications for treating toenail fungus, but some people prefer home remedies, such as those that use bleach to kill the fungi.
Like athletes foot, you can work towards preventing enail fungus by keeping feet clean and, most importantly, dry. Don’t re-wear socks, and stick to open toed shoes if possible. It takes time and patience to get rid of toenail fungus, and for the nail to grow back healthy and normal again. Be diligent about applying your treatments (I can’t stress that enough, it’s really the key to getting these to work the best they can) and don’t overlook preventative methods to keep the fungus from coming back.
2. Apple cider vinegar also works well as a treatment. It is mildly acidic and can help prevent toenail fungus from spreading. It also has antibacterial properties, allowing it to kill fungus while restoring the skin’s pH levels. Remember, toenail fungus could be caused by abnormal pH levels of the skin. The vinegar is also beneficial since its mildly acidic nature not only kills bacteria and fungus, but also prevents it from spreading and causing further problems. Mix equal parts of apple cider vinegar with water. Then soak your toenail in the solution for about 30 minutes as a daily treatment. After this time, dry your toenail thoroughly. Continue this treatment for a few weeks or until the fungus is resolved.

I think she means put as much salt under the actual nail (as these infections tend to lift the nail) also place on top of nail especially where the cuticle is. Try that. Salt water also kills the bacteria that causes eczema to become infected. Salt is a good all rounder for many things! But you must use a pure salt. Celtic salt or himilayan salt which looks pink in colour. You will find it at most health shops.
Topical antifungal creams, oral antifungal prescriptions, and, in severe cases, removal of the nail. However, these medications and procedures can have serious side effects including pain, fever, diarrhea, fatigue, swelling, difficulty breathing, weight gain, liver damage, heart problems, and more. Hoping to avoid health consequences, more and more patients are looking for ways to treat their nail fungus naturally at home.
I contracted a nail fungus on my big toe from a pedicure 2 years ago and tried different otc products with no luck My nail detached about 3/4 of the way down and grew thick and discolored. It was nasty. Finally I tried apple cider vinegar and it worked! First I cut my nail back as low down to the quick as I could which basically was almost my whole nail, I took a file and filed the top of what was left of my nail down until it was nearly smooth and even with my skin, it did hurt a little but not unbearable. Then every night I soaked a small ball of cotton with the vinegar, placed it on my toe and wrapped it with a bandaid and slept with it on. In the morning I would shower and be sure to really clean my toe and let it breath. I did this for over a month and finally one morning I was checking it out and my toe looked pink and healthy at the base and began to grow back. Now, it’s nearly grown back after 3 months. Now I just wear the cotton ball bandaid about twice a week to keep it from coming back. When it is fully grown back I will discontinue it. This works! It’s cheap and effective and it takes patience but it DOES work!
