I dropped a steel drum(barrel) on my left big toe while in my teens (59 now). Oh yeah, it hurt, was the worst pain in my life. Over time I lost my toenail and another started growing, but it grew smaller and thicker. I actually did not know there could be a cure for my toe fungus until one day a couple of weeks ago I got tired of hearing people poke at my 'funny toe'. So I looked on the web, trimmed my toe as much as I could and tried the apple cider vinegar and vicks thing for about a week. All I noticed was it got softer. Then I gave it some more attention (I know now that a week wouldn't be long enough), so I began reading this forum. With all the 'sure thing's' here, I couldn't decide what to tryed first using ketaconizole, clorimeride, and lamisil, all on subsequent days since I have no idea which will work, surely one should show some affect wouldn't you think ? I also use an old oral B electric toothbrush and scrub my toe with alcohol first, then hydrogen perocide, dry it, then apply one of the above solutions all on alternate days. I also have an enlarged prostrate which keeps me urinating at night about every 2 hours. Well, oddly, last night I only pee'd one time, this IS a big deal for me as I slept great. Hasn't happened for years. What happened? Could one of the topical creams be helping my night pee'ing too. How is that possible? Can't wait to see how tonight goes, and I'll post it here again. Anyway, aside from my pee problem, does anyone have any comments on my method of trying to cure my toe fungus ? As I sit here, I'm looking at my left big toe covered in Lotrimin, hoping it works. I've only been doing this method for about a week now, so I will give it more time and see if it works. I really appreciate all of the other comments you all have made, and I didnt know if it would help if I added my 2-cents worth. Incidentally, I didn't just go out and buy all of this stuff, my wife and I had it in our medicine chest already. Thanks all!
