Toenail Fungus Home Remedy Comments

13 Comments for the Toenail Fungus Home Remedy


Several years ago, I had 4 toenails infected with nail fungus- the large toenail (infected 12+ years), the second smallest (infected 15+ year), the middle toe (infected 3 years), and the baby toe (infected less than one year).

The big toenail and the second smallest were VERY thick- like almost 1/4' thick and yellow/crusty. Really nasty.

After doing a lot of research, I came upon the remedy that made the most logical sense to me:

1-2 drops of white vinegar at the base of each nail twice per day

Here is the reasoning for this remedy:

1. Excess moisture is what fungus grows in, so doing extended soaking of the nails is NOT going to help, its going to make it worse. Applying 2 drops twice a day does not create excess moisture around the nail bed.

2. Fresh, healthy nail cells grow out from the base. So the substance needs to just soak in at the very base as these new cells are formed. Clip off the infected nail as it grows out.

3. Vinegar- safe substance, does not harm the body in any way. Cheap. Clear, does not stain, is not greasy.

4. Toenail fungus can only go away as fast as your new nails grow in. So be patient!!!

Two of my small nails have completely cleared due to this process described above.

My two very thick nails, which were infected for more than a decade each, have gradually thinned down. The large toenail started growing in thinner and thinner until one day, the 1/4' thick piece just peeled off completely. The base of that nail is clear and pink. Since my toenails grow in very slowly, I would say that by next summer, I will have a totally clear, healthy big toe nail.

The second smallest is still thick, but the base is clear and pink. That nail was infected for over 15 years, so I think that its just taking longer for it grow out completely clear.

Anyway, just thought I would share. I am very happy with the results and the ease of this treatment. I apply my two drops AM and PM when I brush my teeth.
