Don’t be ashamed! We all have stuff like this going on. There are two trains of thought with nail polish and nail fungus. One is that it does absolutely nothing harmful, the other is that it prevents any treatment from reaching the nail with the utmost efficiency. I am inclined to say that the treatments would work their best without polish, however I also don’t think they would be rendered ineffective if you did choose to use it. If you feel more comfortable with the polish, keep it. If you find you aren’t having success, try it without. And don’t fret over what your husband will think, he chose to marry you, and a little toenail fungus isn’t going to change anything 😉
One of the more attractive things about Fungus Fix is that it will be easy on your wallet; it is a relatively inexpensive compound. It does seem to work for some people, too. The top of the bottle has an applicator brush so applying the solution to the nails will not present any difficulties. Although it is not mentioned, it might be a good idea to wash off the brush with soap and water, and then dry it, before returning it to the bottle to prevent contaminating the remaining liquid with the fungus.

First, mix 1 cup of your chosen vinegar with enough water to soak your feet in. Soak for 15 minutes, and then pat dry with paper towels. Follow this by adding several tablespoons of baking soda to enough water to soak your feet in, and soak for 15 minutes. Pat feet completely dry with paper towels. Do this twice a day. The idea is that the vinegar will kill off the fungus, while the baking soda will then inhibit the growth of more.


My husband has been suffering from awful toe fungus on both of his feet for years. We have searched high and low for something that would get rid of this naturally and after years, someone recommended we look at Neem. Skeptical at first, we did some research and found that the top Neem benefit is that it is anti fungal. We found that Neem Oil is great this way we can kill the fungus and moisturize at the same time.
Thank you for sharing your home cure. I too got an injury on my big toe at the nail and now for the last year and a half I have been suffering from terrible toe nail fungus. I have tried everything under the sun topical and internal to rid my toe of this problem. I’m embarrassed to wear sandals in the summer and so I have been having to wear socks and tennis shoes all year around even though I’m sure air would be much better for my problem. I’m sooo glad I came across your message it gives me hope that maybe I can rid myself of this painful problem once and for all.
I read your article about natural remedies for nail fungus. I got fungus under my big toenail after I fell off my bike and the nail got a small hole in it. I don’t take any medications and I tried EVERY natural remedy known, including the ones you list. (probably 100′s…) After a year, it had gotten so much worse that the nail was only attached by the skin around it and I was certain I would lose the nail. And then I stumbled on a phrase in an article about something else: fungus can’t grow on salt. Here is what finally worked for me: Scrub with baking soda and warm water to get the crusty stuff out from under the nail, dry it and pack it with himilayan pink salt and dab some coconut oil on the nail/skin to keep it soft and to work more of the salt as deep into the gap as possible. It stings a little at first, but it works. Within a week, the nail was growing back at the root pink and healthy! I was so desperate and discouraged and this really worked. And of course I don’t tell anyone because who wants to talk about their nail fungus! I have never seen it written anywhere before or since – pretty sure I invented this cure. Haha.

Medications prescribed for toenail fungus provide mixed results. And, they’re not without side effects. Your liver (as your body’s detox organ) takes the brunt of the chemicals found in all medications. If the liver is compromised in any way, medications add to the burden and can result in further damage or impaired function. Also, other significant health risks exist for those with autoimmune conditions.[1]
