I used tea tree oil and had really great results. It wasn't fast, but after using it for a month or so, I saw such a difference! I used it in the morning and at night. I got the tea tree oil from Amazon.com. It would probably be cheaper at the health food store. I was happy with the results.

It seems we have a large variety of natural remedies. I will keep them handy for future reference. For now, I use coconut oil after soaking and/or cleaning my feet. I apply liberally, then put on a pair of socks. Coconut oil is an antibacterial, anti-fungal so it's worked like what my podiatrist prescribed but which I couldn't afford.

As to how much time? I never kept track, I did notice that within a week my feet quit itching if that helps. I do the coconut oil once a day now as a preventative. It also helps by keeping moisture out from between the toes due to the oil being there instead. I think that makes a difference besides keeping my feet soft too.

I used good old Vick's vapor rub. Put Vick's on toenail every morning wrap with a band aid, at nite wash it off. I got rid of mine.

I'm willing to try all of these remedies. But no one said how long you need to do it before you see results. A little more info please :) Thank you kindly.

My podiatrist cut off all the bad part of the nails. He sold me a bottle of Formula 3 to paint on like nail polish. It was $45 a 1/ 2 oz bottle but it lasted for months. You brush it on and rub it into the nail or nails until the bad part of the nail grows out. I used it for a couple of years.

The lable on the bottle recommends it for athlete's foot or ringworm. It contains several different natural oils. vitamin E and other ingredients. It healed 3 nails but 1 toe still has fungus.

I just bought tea tree oil, 1 fl. oz for $12.99 at GNC. It was recommended in Thrifty fun news different times for nail fungus. I will clean a nail polish brush and use it to paint it on and rub it in as a preventative.

In the past I tried vinegar and also Vicks and they did not help me get rid of the fungus.

My DH soaks his feet in vinegar water at least 3 times a week, he keeps the nails trimmed back as much as he can often...vinegar 1 cup to about 1/2 gallon water. Then he puts on Vicks vaporub every night using a pair of socks to cover them.

He does this faithfully (with my reminders). His nails are growing out looking normal. It sure looks like this is working for him.

I just saw on TV on "The Doctors" show that they used a laser type thing on a guy's toenails. I have no idea what the cost would be but it might be worth checking into. I think it is a fairly new procedure so not sure if every doctor would practice it.
