Cure Toenail Fungus

I am a natural herbal remedy enthusiast, but I also love great home remedies. I share the best remedies I can find from different ancient cultural traditions to the new and modern internet additions. I came across a great home remedy that can cure toenail fungus. It is very easy to do and is an extremely quick application. Traditional methods typically call for lengthy foot baths and messy oils. Well this method does not involve either. Just a quick application of the treatment and a little Vick's Vap-O-Rub a few times a day and you are fungus free in no time.

The treatment consists of vinegar, Listerine and Vick's. The vinegar is acidic and fungus cannot live in an acidic environment. Listerine provides the antiseptic properties to help clean the area and promote the hostile environment for the invading fungus. Simply mix equal parts of the vinegar and Listerine in a small container, and use a eye dropper to apply a few drops to the infected toenails. If your feet are sweaty or unclean, give them a rinse prior to the application. This will clean off any contaminants from the site. Dry your wet feet thoroughly. The dryer you keep your feet the better because fungus grow more effectively in damp areas. Change to a new dry clean pair of socks regularly.

After you have applied the solution to your toenails, you will want to let them dry for a minute or two. When they are dry apply a little Vap-O-Rub to them. This will speed up the healing process. Vick's does a great job of helping the whole process. You can leave off the Vick's if you want to, but it has helped the recovery time in a number of people suffering from toenail fungus.

It is a good idea to bring a few clean pairs of socks with you to work or where ever you are going if you will be there for a while, and , of course, the mixture too. You will want to change to a clean pair of socks and re-apply the treatment often. If you are at home, then do not where closed face shoes. The closed face shoes can create the warm wet atmosphere that the fungus love.

You can use the vinegar and Listerine as a foot bath if you like or have the time. It works well that way, but that is totally optional because the dropper method is completely sufficient. You should bath your foot for at least ten to fifteen minutes to allow it to soak in properly. You can air dry your feet, and if you are going out of the house, you can put on clean socks.

The main thing to remember when you are trying to cure toenail fungus is to keep the area clean and dry. You should try to consistently apply the mixture to make the process as effective and short as possible. This is a great home remedy for toenail fungus, but it is not considered a natural remedy. Natural remedies use herbs and materials you can make yourself.

Love home remedies, thank you. One of the best things around when it comes to treat headlice is Listerin. Drench your hair in it, put on a showercap, leave for a few hours or over night, wash your hair and they are gone :).

Thanks Anna. I agree that home remedies are great. I love the idea that I can drink a natural herbal tea to cure most of common issues that come up in my life. Like you said, simple way to rid yourself of lice....Listerine, which also has many other things it is good for too.
