Have the toe nail fungus with in grown nails I must dig out. Nothing worked for fungus or infections from in grown toes . I then started wetting the tops of my socks with tea tree oil and most has cleared up in my work boots where it used to get worse. The dead nail is not sore any more too. Just pink and healthy. Infections do not stand a chance that’s a big bonus.

Also, the Gimme-Five blogger says he treated his nail fungus by putting vinegar (or Nonyx gel) at the base of his nail twice or three times daily. If you leave a little space around the base of your nail bed where you don’t polish, which looks better anyway, this particular treatment might be affective, as it would reach the nail where it needs to, which still allowing your nails to be polished.
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.

If you’ve tried a lot of toenail fungus treatments and you’re sick of the messy ointments, polishes, and gels, it may be time for a balm. Unlike these other solutions, a balm is a clean and comforting option to help soothe your pain and cure your fungal problem. FineVine Super Balm is one of the best antifungal balms on the market today and one that remains popular with its customers.


Vicks Vapor Rub can do more than help you breathe easier when you have a cold – it can also eliminate nail fungus! The thymol, or oil of thyme, in Vicks Vapor Rub, has natural anti-fungal properties. Spreading it on affected areas can help disrupt the cell membranes of the fungus. While thyme oil has the same properties, Vicks is much easier to find in stores; in fact, you probably already have some in your medicine cabinet!
I just wanted to add that I had good results with cornmeal. I fill a tub with dry cornmeal and cover my toes in it. It feels like putting your toes in a sandy beach. I let them set in the dry mixture for about 30 min. to an hour. I try to do this about twice a week. Suffocates and dries out the fungus. I also sprinkle dry cornmeal in my shoes. I will follow up with the coconut oil, I think that will be wonderful.
Candida albicans is a common yeast that grows inside the human body. In healthy people, other bacteria and immune cells keep this yeast under control so it doesn’t cause any problems, but in some people candida can become overgrown and cause infections in various areas. One of the ways candida shows up is through the skin where it can cause noticeable reactions or infections. Other ways are on the mouth, vagina and anus.

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.


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.
REPLACE: Simply switching to a natural diet of healthy, whole, unprocessed and fresh foods can go a long way toward restoring your gut health. Repair the health of your digestive system with lots of green leafy lettuces and plenty of fresh veggies. Balance your macronutrients with added healthy fats and healthy proteins. The natural fiber found in fresh veggies will help to strengthen the health of the digestive system and restore bacterial balance. The benefits of fats and proteins are too numerous to mention, but when it comes to yeast infections, these macronutrients help to reduce cravings for sugar and keep you feeling fuller for longer periods.

Hi Claire I’m wondering if you can help advise me, I have had a fungal problem now that started a year ago on my right thumb nail. Doctors have been unhelpful with treatments to the point I have been sent to see a dermatologist. My doctors never took sample before prescribing treatments. I have spent a lot of money on raw coconut oil. I have found that it causes the skin around my thumb to harder and cause more pain. My problem is that over the last few weeks 8 of my toes have turned fungal. I found a recipe using Baking soda and a few drops of tea tree and lavender to make an anti fungal drying foot powder, it’s complete aggravated my situation and I too had been using foot soaks as you describe above. Obviously I can’t type everything here that I have tried but I have been persistant, when I showed my doctor my toes yesterday, he looked puzzled that could be so bad when my feet look so healthy otherwise. To get to my point I have been saying to them that the source of this is internal. But they say its not showing in blood test.
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! : )
