I couldn’t afford the expense of the stuff my Dr. prescribed. I got to thinking, I use “CLOVE OIL” for pimples! IT WORKS!!! We use whole cloves in ham to kill the bacteria….. it kills the bacteria that causes pimples (acne)…. So why not try it on my nail fungus? IT WORKED!!!!!!! That was last summer. I’ve just noticed that it looks like it may be trying to come back. It stained the nails a bit, but that goes away pretty quick! But so did the fungus! FAR OUT! : )
Undecylenoyl glycine is a natural substance derived from sunflower and oat proteins. This is added to Fungus Fix for two reasons: this is a natural antibacterial which can help control any bacterial infections that may be commensal with the fungus; undecylenoyl glycine also helps to support the natural acidity of the skin, making it more difficult for secondary bacterial infections to begin.
Hematomas under the nail bed are large red, brownish, or black spots that occur after a trauma such as slamming a toe in a door or hitting a finger with a hammer. Caused by burst blood vessels under the nail, hematomas will grow out with the nail. However, if a red or black spot occurs under the nail without trauma, it is important to have it checked out by a doctor as it may be melanoma.
I can tell you my own mother struggled with toenail fungus on her big toe for over 10 years, and the reason why she originally got it and then continued to struggle with this fungus was the chemotherapy she went through when diagnosed with breast cancer years ago. After going through chemo, she had systemic yeast and candida issues and then developed the toenail fungus. The exact treatment I detail below is what we used with her to successfully erase her fungus.

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.
Baking soda is not fungicidal-that is, it does not kill the fungus. It is, however, fungistatic, which means it can prevent fungus from growing and spreading. The reason it acts like this is because it is alkaline-the opposite of acidic-and fungus is able to flourish when its environment is more acidic. It seems counter-intuitive then, that using vinegar to kill nail fungus would be a good idea, but vinegar is a fairly weak acid, and will help kill off the fungus without altering the Ph. of the environment in a harmful way.
One of the biggest problems with this product is that it is not presently being manufactured, so the supply online is finite. Another problem is that it seems not to be effective for everyone who uses it, although the same could be said for any product. There is no information on the OPI website about Fungus Fix, either, as it is no longer being made.

I work with pools all spring/summer/fall every year (installing/removing/cleaning/maintaining), and am a plumber all year around, My feet are almost ALWAYS wet or in water daily, while I’ve been fortunate to have never had any fungal issue (yet), they got like how you described your feet, dry and cracked from constantly being wet and dry, What worked great for ME was to scrub my feet thoroughly with a good stiff foot scrubber brush and “Sloughing” creme (my wife got the brush and creme through her Avon makeup lady for less than $10) twice per day and than wash them off in very hot soapy water, than towel dried and powdered my feet with Johnson’s baby powder and heavily powdered my socks and shoes. That worked great for my very dry, cracked feet. they quickly became nice and smooth and soft again! No oils, meds or lotions helped. Now I just make sure that I wash, dry and powder my feet as soon as possible once they get wet or sweaty to keep them nice, and I also keep my shoes clean and dry. Good Luck!

Kelly, I am worried about the prescription, and I know which one you are talking about. There are serious concerns about liver damage. I would never take it, ever. Also, the 85% success rate is highly exaggerated. Tea tree oil and coconut oil mixed together will absolutely cure it but there is one huge catch: you have to apply it every single day without fail, and you have to try to keep your feet dry and uncovered as much as possible. It is very simple but takes your best effort to stick to it. Look up ‘nail fungus diary’ and you’ll see how bad my nails were and how much better they’ve gotten. Toenail fungus can be cured safely and naturally. I also used something called Kerasal Nail which isn’t all natural but I think you’d be just fine without it.
For Fungi Nail to work optimally, you should apply to clean, recently washed, dry feet twice each day. Apply with the included dual-angle brush to the nail and skin and wear a well-ventilated shoe. This ointment can also work on athlete's foot or ringworm and helps moisturize skin while it reduces dryness and kills fungus. Fungi Nail treats the symptoms as well as the cause.
Food intolerances — Some yeast infections are due to food allergies. Try to avoid foods that cause negative reactions of any kind and pay attention to symptoms you experience when eating things like dairy, eggs, certain nuts, wheat-containing foods and grains. If you think you have a food allergy or sensitivity, try an elimination diet to figure out what foods are causing intolerance and work on removing those foods.
What is the best treatment for toenail fungus? Options include topical creams, oral medication, laser treatment, and surgical nail removal (avulsion). Of these, avulsion is the most effective, but needs to be done by a doctor. Creams and gels are the easiest and most convenient home treatment for nail fungus, provided that the formula can penetrate the nail.
