I cured a toenail in two weeks using a 50/50 mixture of borax and baking soda. Borax is a kind of salt… I mixed it together with a touch of water to make a paste (I mixed up a small container full all at once so I didn’t need to mix it every time I used it). I cut the infected nail back as far as I comfortably coud and cleaned in well with soap and water. Then I scrubbed the borax/baking soda mixture into the nail getting as much as I could under the nail. I wash it off then repeat but this time I leave it coating the toenail. I did this twice a day for two weeks and my infection is completely gone. I’ve tried every over the counter remedy, prescription strenth polish, teatree oil, etc. This really works well.
I have a terrible fungus under my right big toe. Now I have a patch of rough skin that itches all the time just above the bend of the foot on my shin bone. It seems to be working down the top of my foot. My dermatologist told me this was as a result of the fungus and could go all the way to my knee. I am very skeptical about this. I have never tried any of your remedies but plan to in the near future. Thank you for your ideas.

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.
Once it takes hold, the bacteria and yeast thrive off of sugar molecules entering the digestive tract through the foods you eat. That’s exactly why you need to eliminate the underlying cause, which is likely stemming from your diet (and possibly also your lifestyle to some degree). This will help ultimately restore your body’s pH balance, improve your immune function and boost the presence of good bacteria in your gut.

Buy yourself a big bag of epsom salts at the drugstore some tea tree oil. Fill a foot basin with enough water to cover your feet up to your ankles. Add about half a cup of the epsomm salts and a cap full of tea tree oil to the water. Soak your feet for 15 to 30 minutes. Then use a pumice stone after soaking to scrub the soles of your feet. Do this everyday and the foot soak will soften your feet and the pumice stone will remove all the dead skin. I had bad cracked dry rough feet and now they are supple and smooth. This works and heals athletes foot and helps to speed uo nail fungus cure while also using topical treatments on nails like tea tree oil, coconut oil, over the counter nail fungus ointments, grape seed oil, oregano oil, vicks, and vinegar to name a few. Pick whatever you would like to use in conjunction with the footbath and your feet and nail fungus will heal. The trick is doing it religiously everyday. It is a battle and you have to fight the fungus and see it as the enemy. It is dramatic but so is nail fungus.
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.
I have had nail fungus for about 10 years. I half-heartedly tried to cure it a couple of times and of course it didn’t work. Now I am determined to get rid of it this time. For 2 months now I have been using tea tree oil mixed with coconut oil, and Kerasal Nail at night. It is working. I am taking pictures of my toes once a week and you can see them at nailfungusdiary.com. Good luck!
Use it daily for at least two weeks. You may see and feel improvements in the health of your infected skin after the first week, but treat the infected foot for an additional week or two after it improves to ensure that all of the fungus has been killed. I used the vinegar soak method morning and night daily on a persistent foot fungus infection and it disappeared completely after two weeks.
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.
The first step in treating toenail fungus is using one of the most effective and natural ways to fight candida. In other words, you’ll likely need to make some changes in your diet and adopt a candida diet. The most crucial tactic for treating candida overgrowth is to eliminate what feeds the yeast and candida virus living in your digestive tract in the first place: sugars and conventional grain products.
3. Lemon juice can be used to successfully treat toenail fungus. It to has antiseptic and anti fungal properties to eliminate the fungus. As mentioned in other treatments, it is not just important to kill the bacteria and fungus present on the toenail, but you will also want to stop it from spreading. Lemon juice can stop the fungus from spreading since it contains citric acid. First, apply fresh lemon juice onto the infected nail. Leave this on for about 30 minutes. After this time, rinse the lemon juice off thoroughly with warm water. You can use this treatment a couple of times a day until you obtain the positive results you are looking for. You can also try mixing equal parts lemon juice and olive oil, massaging the mixture onto the infected toe. Leave this on for a couple of hours and then rinse it off thoroughly. The olive oil will provide the added benefits of softening the skin and treating the nail, while the lemon juice controls the fungus. Again this can be done a couple of times a day.
The much-touted ability of ozonated oils, such as olive oil or sunflower oil, to render fungus, yeast, and bacteria inactive has been common knowledge for centuries. These oils are produced by reacting ozone (O3) with oil, and they contain compounds with significant medicinal effects that are responsible for their success against toenail fungus.(5)(6)
