5 Comments for the Toenail Fungus Home Remedy

Kali Sandison

I've culled some of the information from this site and put together this treatment. I've only been using it for two weeks but I'm already starting to see results. I treat at breakfast, lunch dinner and bed time. First thing in the morning when my toes are already clean, I disinfect them with decolored iodine. Then I liberally dab on Tea Tree Oil. At lunch and dinner I use more tea tree oil. Before bed I smother them with Vick's VapoRub and wrap them in band-aids so the salve stays on the toes and off my sheets. Also during the day I use a laser pointer for about 10 minutes on each nail. Once a week, I use a coarse nail file to keep the nails filed down to a more normal thickness so that everything penetrates more easily. One nail (the one that has been infected the shortest time) has flaked off about half way back. The other is starting to show signs it's about to start flaking. I spend as much time as possible barefoot but right now, it's too cold to be going barefoot for extended periods of time. As the weather warms up, I'll stay out of my slippers more.

How do you have time for anything else in your life?

Rude! The person is investing on getting better.

You can drop the laserpointer because it is a cold laser and won't do anything but light up your toe in a pretty glow. Medical lasers actually heat the required area. You'll be able to save some time here. For the rest of it I think you are on the right track, Miltons solution (sodium hyperchlorite) will also work as would ascerbine. Changing the nail's PH to something the fungus cannot thrive in is what it is about.

I have way better results with blue star ointment than with the results vicks gave me. andAlsi I wondered about the light thing myself only I was thinking more along the lines of the blue light that helps you bleach your teeth... more like ultraviolet rays because the bacteria doesn't like sunshine. I've been thinking about t.hat for a while

I've found with using topical treatments soaked in a cottonball, that a finger cot rolled over top, keeps the treatment in place comfortably.
