I had a fingernail fungus on four of my fingernails and I applied Vicks everyday for about a month. The Vicks works!!!!

I developed fingernail fungus after having to go through a very stressful period in my life. Needless to say, toenail fungus looks bad but on your hands, it looks worse and having to go to work is causing me grief. Someone told me about bee propolis. Having tried many unsuccessful remedies, I thought I would give this a try.
Warning: it does stain your nail but lo and behold after using the bee stuff and the tea tree oil, a new nail seems to be growing with no fungus....make certain you sterilyse all instruments used on the affected nail. I wish you luck with this nasty bug.

I have had my infection for about 1 year, on ever nail, fingers and toes. I have tried mostly all of these and more. Last week I tried PENETAN MEDICATED CREAM. IT WORKS GREAT, IT GOT RID OF 2 REALLY BAD SPOTS THAT HAVE BEEN ACCUMULATING FOR 1 YEAR NOW, NOW THAT THEY HAVE GONE ALL THE ACCUMULATION IS ABE TO COME OUT. I HOPE SOMEONE TRIES THIS AAND GET RELIEF. MAKE SURE IT IS THE MEDIATED KIND, THE REGULAR DOES NOT WORK.

I had fungus peel back in both my thumb nails for over 30 years - very ugly and sometimes would turn green, yuk! - tried all the expensive chemist products to no avail BUT my nails are finally cured after once a day at bedtime putting equal parts listerine and cider vinegar under the nails with a dropper then rubbing vicks vapor rub into top of nail & covering with a bandaid (you can remove the bandaid in the morning if you want)- it took 5 months of perseverance for the nails to grow out perfectly healthy - it definitely works!

Apple Cider Vinegar (Organic)
Put 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar and 1 cup water in a spray bottle. Shake and spray on and under toenails each night and morning. It made my toenails clear and pretty!!!
Good Health Always!

I have tried over and over to rid my nails of this ugly fungus. It wasn't until my my good friend saw my nails and offered a simple cure that has cleared the problem totally.

Table salt and olive oil yes right from your kitchen. Mix the two ingredients til olive oil is consumed by the salt. Dab a little on each infected nail twice a day and let the healing begin.

I tried a product called Zerofungus which seemed to work initially but since my nail fungus was so bad it could only go so far.

My nails were yellow and down right manky! I had to move onto something a bit stronger. I eventually found a nail fungus treatment called Fungusil which is working really well for me. The nails are slowly getting clearer and the yellowness is going away thank goodness

I had gotten toenail fungus one day, and while using my nail clippers to trim my toenails, I forgot to clean my nail clippers. Well, needless to say, I used those same uncleaned nail clippers to trim my finger nails, and so my fingers ended up with the fungus in it. I have tried other remedies from reading what others have posted, but none seemed to get rid of it.

One day, I brought my fingers to my nose and sniffed it. There was an aweful odor coming from my fingers. The fungus had gotten so bad that I had to do something.

I have tried using Listerine twice daily but it did nothing to take it away. One day, a thought formed in my head of a remedy and I took the initiative and went for it.

I took one quarter cap of Clorax Bleach and put it into a small bowl, and then added 6 to 8 ounces of luke warm water to it. I soaked my fingers in that solution for 3 to 5 minutes being extra careful not to splash bleach water onto my clothing. After that, I washed my fingers and hands thoroughly, then disposed of the bleach water down the drain. Since that first soak, it has not come back.

You may have to soak a second time if you see signs, but I doubt you will. Give it a try, but just be careful that you are not allergic to bleach, and that you use a minimal amount. Bleach is used in some hospitals as a cleaning agent to disinfect hospital rooms, beds, and furniture after a patient is discharge to home. So I figured why not give it a try. After that first soak, I have gotten rid of it, so far.

Good luck to all of you. Hope it works for you...and if it does, leave me a comment. Thanks.
