I tried most of the remedies, and they worked for a while, but the condition always returned. Most fungicides are made with copper salts, so I made a copper toe ring. I wear it all the time and have been symptom free for 20 years, except the time I lost it once and the itching came back. The ring has to fit very closely, so it has to be custom made.

The best way I have found to make one is to tie a small copper wire (14 to 24 ga) snugly around the toe with a simple overhand knot. Slip it off carefully trying not to stretch it much larger and solder the ring together. Cut and file off the excess, then work the ring back on. It will not be easy to get it on, but once you do you can forget it.

If your toe turns green, then you really needed to wear some copper because your body chemistry was deficient in copper too.

This is one of the most uneducated things you could have said.Copper compounds and impregnated clothing have an antimicrobial effect but turning your skin green is basic childhood science. Its normal for un-coated copper to turn skin green if it remains in direct contact with skin oils and salt, its called oxidation. Remember oxidation? Everyone in modern countries that arent ruled by religion or voodoo-like medical science are taught it every year of basic schooling from age 10 until they graduate.

Thats almost as bone-headed as those scam detox pads.


Do you have a better remedy, Miller, since you've given your doctoral dissertation on a home remedy site?
