After TEN YEARS of fighting the toenail fugus I finally WON!!

TREATMENT BENEFITS
* No oral drugs or injections
* Easy
* Application of treatment takes very little time (especially compared to the other treatments I've read)

WHAT WORKED
Decolorized Iodine (also known as clear iodine - non staining).

WHAT YOU NEED - GENERALLY
You need an antiseptic. The infection is on the skin under the nail. There are a lot of antispectics out there but they have to be 'thin' enough to get through the nail (liquid surface tension, viscosity).

WHY DECOLORIZED IODINE WORKS
Iodine absorbs in the nail in SECONDS. It also leaves NO staining - completely clear.

Other antiseptics - Bleach(chlorine), Peroxide (including Hydrogen and urine), Chlorhexidine Gluconate (hospital skin cleaner) are too thick even if you soak your toes in them (although chlorine can make a little difference)

WHERE TO GET IT
Not widely available. I found it at CVS for $5, but it was not at Walgreens or Walmart for me. Mine came in a brown bottle even though the liquid is clear and dries clear.

TREATMENT
A treatment consisted dipping a q-tip in the bottle and painting your infected nails and the skin that is close to the nail. Repeat (double dipping's ok!) until all infected nails are saturated (it can take ten times). Then leave to dry (takes less than a minute).

THAT'S IT! In less than a half an hour you might feel the skin under your nails tingling. You know it's working!!

If it hurts at anytime while applying, you have hit a pocket of infection. Stop and wait the next day to try again.

I STRONGLY recommend that you do this in the bathtub. Until the iodine is absorbed, it smells like cat urine; but that's only for a few seconds. But if you spill the bottle you want easy clean up.

MY STORY
What I did was apply it 3 times a day for 4 days, then once a week for 4 weeks, then once a month for 3 months. I don't know if more would be faster or if less is fine. In 6 weeks I was amazed at the change in my toes and nails.

Change in 6 weeks
* My toe skin looked healthier
* Light pink nail was growing out the bottom
* My right big toe left side of the nail had (before treatment) began to detact completely making another toe nail! After 6 weeks it began to reattach a full 1/8 inch!!!

Now (5 months later)
They look great. The only sign left is a major ridge that you can't see (but use to see) but I can feel it with my finger. My right toe nail has completely reattached.


INCOURAGEMENT
I would like to say that when you get rid of this infection, your body will fight other infections faster and you'll feel healthier too.

So don't let anyone, nurse or doctor tell you it can't be done!!

I have pictures but I guess I'll had to describe them instead.

IF IT WORKS FOR YOU PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WILL!!

(IT'S OBVIOUS TO ME THAT THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY IS NOT INTRESTED IN HELPING.)

Yeah, my toenails got thicker every year. So thick I had trouble cutting them - had to soak them before hand.

The nails do return to normal size!

Mark.

I'm teary eyed reading the comments because I'm so excited about trying this. I know you feel my pain and how embarrassing it is not to be able to get pedicures with your friends or family because you don't want others to see your nasty toenails. I've fought this for 16 years. I will give updates. Fingers crossed. And thanks so much for sharing :)

I started last Sunday!!! I really hope it works! I only have to treat one toenail, right big toe. I've this problem for a couple of yrs now. Not really sure when and how it all started. I might do an extra day this week than Mark did and then go to once a week. Thanks!!

I just started the pricess today. I can't wait to see some results. I have had it my whole life. I've tried many things with little success. My Dr. told me I should just learn to live with it.. Well that is unacceptable to me, so on that note my search began and ended here... lookinf forward to being something I never was...Barefoot....

Stacy, Don't cry be excited! Go get that pedicure believe me if it was not for them, I could not wear flip flops. They have seen toes worse then ours trust me.I use to feel like you, but a friend finally talk me into it. Because I was in so much pain over a ingrown toenail on top of the fungus. My husband would clip them, but nothing like what they do at the shop. Believe me I just started this today and I am taking pictures every week. If it works like so many of the post say. Then we will have the proof to show that Mark knows what he is talking about. I will be back in a few weeks to post how everything is going.

I can't believe the encouragement felt by reading these posts...Mark YOU ARE THE MAN!!! I had spoken with my doctor years ago, and was told 'not to worry about it', so I didn't, and now I have pretty much all my toes at different stages of infection. A few days ago I was informed by a friend that it was a fungus and to get it looked at, so I started doing my research and found this post this morning. Off I go to pick up my product and start immediately. I also will take pictures. Thanks again Mark!

So glad I found this! Just bought a bottle yesterday and I've started using it today. I have a question though: can I still wear nail polish on the nails with fungus? Because that's how I've been trying to hide the gross-looking nails...
