I am so happy to report to the internet my toenail fungus home remedy success story. I hope many of you can find it works for you as well. In April 2014 I noticed, after removing toenail polish that had been on for about a month, what looked like a bruise under my right big toenail. Turned out to be fungus. I was mortified. I tried Lamisil prescribed by my Dr., but it made me feel weird: headaches, loss of taste, gas, etc. I did not want 3 months of that very strong drug, who knows what it was doing to other cells in my body. So I started trying all the internet suggestions: apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, etc. After a few weeks of this with uncertain results, I soaked my toe in vinegar, clipped the nail down really short, and used a toothpick soaked in tea tree oil to DIG OUT THE FUNGUS from under the nail. Totally gross, and it takes a strong stomach, but a healthy nail is almost completely grown back (3 months later). I still put tea tree oil under the part of the nail that has not grown back, to keep it clean, etc., but I am so glad I just went ahead and took control of the situation. I was very gentle, and didn't break skin, it didn't hurt one bit. I used a headlamp. There was a gap in between where the nail and the healthy nail bed is, with fungus in between. Dig the fungus out! I hope this helps some people out there! good luck.
