My problem started 4 years ago when I hurt my fingernail trying to help a neighbor. Consequently I then ended up getting the dreaded ' Nail Fungus ', in my exposed area. I am really not sure where it came from as I was still in denial about it being in my big toes already..and If I really think about I might have gotten that from a nail salon.
I am a guy and twice a year or so I would go to the local nail salon for apedicure. That is when I first noticed it , a month or so later in my toes...And still being in denial, I never really did anything about it,,,think it would go away..Oh, I tried to use some paint on stuff and maybe a week or 2 of some other weak ass cream...And it continued to grow..)))
Finally a few years ago I started realizing I had a real problem and no medical insurance to even get help..That is when I started reading these blogs. My first understanding was that Lamisil ( what the doctor prescribes that will possibly hurt your liver ) also comes in a much smaller %,,,1% instead of 10% like the doctor prescribed...
This is found in Creams sold for Athletes Foot.,,But being super broke because of the economy and having few resources..I went to the Dollar Store and found the 1% cream there for guess what,,,a $1...That is when I finally found a cure for my nail fungus,,The amount is so small if wont hurt your liver ( ask a doctor, which I am not ) but will kill the nail fungus also,,,problem it takes forever,,,
You have to apply it multiple times a day for maybe year,,,maybe a little longer...You keep covering the nail for what seems like an eternity and eventually the half moon will return and your nail will be beautiful again,,,But during this time yiou need to be using an emery board helping the nail stay this as not get all crusty,,,,Yuck and so it will absorb..But trust me it does work..I stil have a problem in both thumbs but it was my fault for not bombarding the nail with applications.. Now it is looking great,,and my finger is perfect..
But now lets get back to my feet,,,I kept thinking the fungus was gone but it was not,,,my nails were not there pink healthy shape...but slightly cloudy and even had spots in the big toes...Horrific!!! I am from the beach and live in Flip Flops even in the winter indoors,,But last Summer I had a meltdown,,,my feet for the first time got ' Athletes Foot '...In weeks my nails were turning to jello, feet swollen, toes bleeding...I was in shock and this is what I did..
1) Clean everywhere that your AF has
touched with either bleach or Apple
Cider Vinegar..
2) Soak your clean feet with Apple
Cider Vinegar 2 times a day for a
1/2 hour each time
3) After soak use the Dollar
Store Lamisil'''' and cover your
nails and toes,,,repeat till all
signs are gone, then do it for
another1-2 weeks,,,
** For me the problem was nail fungus and athletes foot,,,The Apple Cider Vinegar and Lamisil worked for both,,But you must practice good hygiene,,,
Sorry it was so long,,,I wanted people to know how bad I had it and all is well,,,But only if you are relentless,,even 3-4 times a day it wont hurt you....KILL that fungi

DO NOT mix bleach with anything, especially vinegar (white or cider) even a tiny bit will cause a toxic reaction. It is also a know carcinogen (cancer causing) so if you can avoid using it stick with vinegar, other cleansers, and teatime can help as well.


thanks for the info much nedded

I've had Athelets feet for a while now, like 3 years and nothing I've use over the conter has worked. So needless to say I'm looking for something that will help. I've perchased my apple cider viniger and will begin my home remedy tomorrow. Just one question though, will the viniger help the itching right away?
I will be sure to let you know if this helped me or not. I really hope it does!!!!
