Hi, I have been treating my toenail fungus with distilled vinegar. It helped for a while but seems like it’s back. To avoid the hassle of gloves and soaks, I put some in a small spray bottle from the dollar store and sprayed my toenail twice a day. Then put the socks on. Now I think I will crush some salt and mix with coconut oil. And will use q-tip for applying to make things easier. Anyone tried mixing before?
1. Tea tree oil can be helpful when treating toenail fungus. It is an antiseptic in addition to having anti fungal properties. This means it can be quite beneficial for toenail fungus specifically. The oil is also used to treat other kinds of skin infections. Tea tree oil is beneficial as a treatment since it is able to penetrate deep into thick nails to kill all underlying fungus. As well, it can strengthen the immune system to prevent fungal infection and heals the fungus, bringing back the nails smoothness, shine and clarity. Mix a few drops of the oil in one teaspoon of either olive oil or coconut oil. Use a cotton ball to apply the mixture on to the affected toenail and leave it on for 10 minutes. Use a toothbrush or other brush to gently scrub the affected nail. You can do they a couple of times a day until the fungus has cleared and you are happy with the results.
Nail fungus; be it on your toenails or your fingernails is an unpleasant business to have to deal with. Officially known as onychomcosis, it is most often caused by moisture trapped in a warm dark place (because of shoes, this is why it more commonly effects toenails) which is the environment fungus thrives in. In some cases it can be caused by mold, or yeast, but it’s still collectively called nail fungus-nail mold or nail yeast just doesn’t have quite the same ring to it.
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!!
I’ve read about good results from various methods. I’m just beginning a regime, but am wondering would it help or hinder to try two methods at the same time, such as the vinegar/water soak and Vicks? It seems if there are multiple types of fungus and some remedies work on one type but not another, I wondered if this might speed up the results. I just realized I had toe fungus on multiple toes after thinking they were just damaged due to hiking. It’s been over three years and I am ready to have my normal toes back!
To use Funginix, apply the viscous solution to the nail with a brush applicator and wipe away the excess with a cotton swab. Keep your feet dry while using Funginix for maximum effect. The solution will absorb in about five minutes and starts working quickly. For the best results, use Funginix consistently. Customers love this one-of-a-kind toenail fungus solution and post about its success in product reviews.
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.
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.
