I never thought I'd live the day to see my toenail healthy again...Yes it happened! After struggling for over 12 years I used turpentine on a daily basis, twice a day, rub on the cleaned nail (you remove all dead, buff and polish, etc) I had about 30\\% loss of my nail - I never let it go really bad but I never managed to fix it either. So turpentine will not make your nail yellow like tea tree oil does and I found it more potent as well. I less than 8 months I was able to wear sandals and be happy with my toes. YAY for TURPENTINE! I recommend pure gum spirits only, not the chemical from the hardware stores. Diamond G is the brand I used, they seem to have the best quality. Try it! Cheap and effective just be consistent with cleaning and applying... Good luck!

Don’t worry friend, you can easily get rid of this toe nail infection problem as there are so many natural ways to cure it. I want to share the most effective one i.e Foot soak: Make a mixture of one part vinegar and one part water. Make sure the water is warm but not too hot. Soak feet at least 30 minutes once per day. Not only will this treat the nail fungus, it will also get rid of athlete foot. Follow up by massaging the foot with tea tree oil which is another powerful antifungal agent.

Tried every home remedy to treat my toenail fungus, with no help.

Hi. This is John, the guy who posted earlier about the nail fungus diary I made. It worked, I cured my nail fungus. It took about 8 months. One change though, I got rid of the Kerasal Nail and replaced it with oregano oil. I took lots of pictures. Nailfungusdiary.com. Tea tree oil, coconut oil and oregano oil is all you need, no silly miracle products or liver-eating drugs necessary!
Has anyone every tried Nail 17? It is a collection of essential oils and they have a study and patent and everything. Just checking to see if anyone has used it in the past and had any luck. It seems to be a new product though.
Had fungus on right ring fingernail and baby fingernail at age 22 from a sponge that my whole bank branch used to wet our fingers with...before counting the equally filthy money. I didn't realize nail fungus existed before then. Horrified. Got so bad the moon was the only thing left on each nail. Used fake nails to cover and then tried dipping a q-tip in bleach and dabbing daily after removing fake nails daily. Small progress. Then tried soaking nails in full bleach once a week for as long as I could stand the smell. Eventually went away(!!) after YEARS of infection and treatment after I went on a low carb diet and kept bleaching. The week after they were cured completely at age 25, left pointer finger tingled, got hot, and got fully eaten overnight. Devastating, as I have always worked with the public and they tend to stare at your hands while you write. Ugh. Defeated again. Tried Penlac, vinegar, bleach. Doctor refused Lamisil stating it was 'just cosmetic' and i would just have to live with it. I disagree so wholeheartedly. I've never had a manicure or pedicure due to this fear of fungus and fear of showing people my condition! I avoided social situations and even refused a proposal due to my fear that my germophobe boyfriend would be horrified at my nails when I peeled off the fake ones to bleach them. Became very depressed, and tried everything, with no results. The nails would grow back and then be full of fungus again in a monthly cycle. Contracted it in my left thumb and full loss of nail overnight, (I mean de-attached from the nail bed, they didn't fall off). Sigh. Fast forward to age 38 after 12 years of intense emotional suffering and finally decided to attack in a big way. Didn't care how awful my hands looked in the process-- age makes you care a little less, bless God!! Cut fungus filled nails down all the way to the base of the nail that was healthy and then filed them down to paper thinness on top. I then began soaking in bleach nightly until I got what seemed to be chemical burns. Then I stopped bleaching due to the pain and filed down the nail bed every night with a fresh file and then discarded the file. (Dollar store files, the best!!) I then soaked in white vinegar and grapefruit oil (NOW brand) for 10min a night. Soaked in bleach one night per week and then a week of nightly vinegar and grapefruit oil soaks --for 5 months straight. The nails took forever to grow down --6 months?-- because I was aggressively filing them down every night and soaking in vinegar. I didn't stop even when I saw the nails were growing without that yellow tint and grungy stuff under them. I was diligent about cutting and filing down any soft, yellow or flimsy nail that began to grow. Only attached parts that were pink were allowed so my nails looked truly deformed for 6 months until the strong parts came in. I then had to stop soaking nightly due to a house move. They seemed to be growing attached!!
I also ordered Oil of Oregano from Greece (Zane Hellas brand) from EBay to give it a final punch. Smells awful but I applied it about twice per week to my new little half nails. It has been one year now since I started and the nails are still pink and attached after about 5 months of full growth and attachment . I am holding my breath and applying oil of Oregano weekly and just praying this sticks!!
One other finger started looking suspicious (argh!!!) and the Oil of Oregano seems to have halted the progress and I treat that weekly as well. SO IMPORTANT to never use tools on your healthy nails that you use on the infected ones. I am cautiously hopeful but I think I may have won!!!! I pray each and every one of you may be cured and I am posting my story in the hope that my method may help you too!!
Acidophilus & Stout Darkest Beer Possible: mix a satchel or tablets of acidophilus with 1/4 of beer and soak entire fungal infested nail submerged in mixture for 20-30 minutes three to four times a day for 1-3 months until grows clean, store mixture in covered container in fridgerator between uses and each day exchange 1/4 of mixture with fresh beer and 1-2 acidophilus tablets. This cured my 20+ years of other failed cures finally eliminating thick fungal diseasediscolored big toe nail
I am finally attacking my nail fungus using Kerasal Nail and tea tree oil. I’m taking pictures of my toes every week for everyone to see (gross but hopefully helpful). It is at nailfungusdiary.com. Whether it works or not is yet to be seen but one way or another I hope it will help people make a decision about how to treat their nail fungus.
