Stop soaking your feet or foot in a vinegar solution. Clean your feet in an anti-bacterial soap every day and dry with a dry, clean towel each time you dry off. Make sure it's not the same towel every time you dry your feet. Make sure all of the foot is dry, even between the toes and between the nail beds. Use an eye dropper or a syringe without the needle you can get from a pharmacy (just ask the pharmacist and they will give you one for free, tell them you want one you give meds to children for oral meds) filled with pure vinegar, either white or apple cider, I prefer the white because it does not leave a smell. Drop the vinegar over the entire nail and under the nail as many times a day as you can and allow it to dry (as soon as you dry your feet when you get out of the shower or tub and before you get in the bed or put socks or shoes on. The fungus will begin to die faster than you can imagine. Use an orange stick to clean out the dead skin and dead fungus from under the nail bed and begin to cut back the dead nail bed to expose the new nail bed. This will allow easy access for more vinegar to penetrate the fungus that is remaining. The fungus cannot live in an acidic environment. The more acidic the environment is, the fungus will die quicker. So do NOT dilute the vinegar. You will see white dead skin and scummy matter removed each time (approximately every 4 days) when you clean under your nail with the orange stick. Throw away the orange stick every time you use one. Every time you use your nail clippers, make sure you disinfect them with soap and water, alcohol, vinegar, or a solution you can buy from a health and beauty supply store for disinfecting pedicure equipment. After about three months throw away the clippers and buy another pair. These things are cheap and it's worth it in order to get rid of the fungus. Wash your hands thoroughly each time you touch your feet. Make sure you get as much air to the affected area as possible. Each time you remove the dead skin and dead fungus, cut back the dead toenail and expose the new area and keep applying the pure vinegar from the dropper or syringe. Keep this process going and each time file the end of the toenail that is left and the top of the toenail on the nail bed so it is rough and enough layer is taken enough for the vinegar to keep penetrating the nail bed. The nail will whiten with every application with the vinegar but will pinken back up after the vinegar dries. It may take about 8 months to get the fungus killed and for a new nail to grow back, but it is better than taking the oral medication which I took only to have the fungus return at exactly one year later. My physician would not give me another prescription for the oral med because I have GERD and advised me of this method because I had told her I was soaking my foot in a vinegar solution. She has checked my feet since I began this method and has told me to make sure that since the fungus returned after the oral med round, after this fungus is cured to make sure I keep the vinegar drops on my toes at least once a day because I live in the South in humid conditions and it may be the climate that allows the fungus to thrive. I hope this helps you get rid of your condition without removing your nail.

i have recently got a fungus, and it is really ugly. went from pretty feet to uglies. i am trying tree oil at this time and also trying a solution of tetrabinafine 1%/ibuprofene 2% and dms 99%. the nail bed looks like it may not have spread there. i am sure i caught this from a public indoor pool where i take water therapy. in any event, it is driving me nuts. one thing for certain keep them dry, use the blow dryer everytime you shower and put anything on the toenails to completely dry them and between the toes. i will tell you how i make out after at least 3 months. this is a slow process.

The vinegar is workn. thats y tha nail turns white. killn that fungus on contact! i cant wait to wear scandals without second guessin.

ALMOST fungus FREE!!

THIS WORKS!! I have had toe nail fungus for 7 years! starting in january 2012 I bought a spray bottle from wherever and filled it up with white vinegar and every time I get out the shower I spray all my toes until they are soaked! then I wait til they air dry and with a dropper apply tea tree oil or iodine every other day.

to get rid of this fungus you need to be CONSISTENT and COMMITED! spraying your toe nails after getting out of the shower doesn't take long just do it!

Hope this helps!! I am half way to being fungus free!! YAY!
