Two or three years ago my daughter got toe fungus. It looked like the top of her toe was been eaten away. It was pretty nasty so I did some on-line research to figure out what it was. To be sure, I took her to a doctor who confirmed toe fungus. He of course prescribed a medication. I can't remember what it was called but I do remember it was just under two hundred dollars and had some severe side effects that to me was not worth the risk. I came to this site and spent hours and hours scouring through the posts. This is what we did for her and 3 years later, she has not had a recurrence and it cost me all but $30.00 CDN.

I bought 2 small storage boxes the perfect size for soaking feet. I got a big tub of apple cider vinegar, a big package of brand new cotton socks and a toe fungus ointment cream with the highest concentration of undecylenic acid I cold find.I found it in the same isle that has products for athlete foot. I tried to find undecylenic acid in local health food stores but never found it so I took a gamble on the toe fungus cream.

Several times a day I made her soak her feet for 10-20 minutes in warm water and apple cider vinegar. After the soak, she applied the ointment and put on fresh socks every single time. She did this several times a day for about 2 weeks until no evidence of the fungus could be seen. After the fungus started clearing we could see it had eaten away most of her big toe nail and we were worried she would loose the nail but it grew back to normal and three years later, she remains fungus free. It has never returned.

Why am I posting now? I've been a sufferer of cold sores since childhood and once again my search for natural remedies brings me to this site. I thought I would add my experience since it appeared to be very successful for my daughter.I strongly encourage people to try natural anti fungals before paying for any pharmaceutical.

can reuse the socks or should we throw them away?


Thanks for sharing.
Im 40 now and since I remember I was getting cold sores.
I quit drinking all drinks that have caffien, coffee, cola and all black soft drinks and I changed my toothpaste to a natural one that does not have fluoride.
After a few weeks my skin and lips healed and did not get a cold sore for 5 years untill I started drinking coffee again.
Hope this helps :)


For cold sores, fever blisters, and canker sores in the mouth I was given advice by a naturalist/homeopath to take L-lysine, which is an amino acid available from any on line vitamin supplier. I used to get them monthly. I have been taking one a day for years and have had no lip or mouth sores of any kind. I don't know the reason,,. nor could I find any side effects nor have I had any, but it worked.


first of all, thank you for your post about the apple cider vinegar; the tips of my toes are yellowing for no apparent reason so I'll try your treatment.
I also get cold sores and I did find a solution for those too: earwax. It sounds gross but it works as well if not better than prescription creams I get for that. As soons as you feel one coming up, just dig out what you have in your ears and apply on the affected lip area. I sounds really stange but it works...


When anyone in my family gets a cold sore or fever blister, we take about 1000mg of L-lysine and we put tea tree oil on it several times a day. The sore usually clears up within 3-4 days.


What is your ratio of ACV to water?


Cold sore duration can be reduced by increasing your intake of yogurt (live cultures). Works with Herpes II also.

just curious but why the socks?


A very natural and effective way to cure nail fungus is the use of Zederna Insoles made from original cedarwood. Easy to use and very, very effective.
The natural antibacterial antibodies of the cedarwood decompose microorganisms and prevent the unpleasant smell formation and the emergence of fungal nail.


Take one L-lysin a day or If you don't like taking pills everyday if I feel one coming I take two pills in the morning and two at night till it is gone it does shorten the time you have one.
