Treating Toenail Fungus Takes Time

As ugly as the nail fungus looks, that isn't what you're curing. Any "cure" you use is getting at the root of the problem and that's the fungus itself. It lives under and around the nail, it gets stuck inside the nail, staining the nail! Every time you think it's gone, it will come back if that nail has not grown 100% out.


All the cures, Vicks, vinegar, OTC products, and doctor's scripts do one thing by killing the virus while the nail grows completely out. It is kind of like if you bruise a nail. That bruise won't go away, until it grows out too.

You have to apply this stuff "every" day, for months and months. Don't apply it to the nail, apply it around the nail and under the nail, being careful to get down deep into the crevices.

Keep cutting the nail until it's all new nail!

If you have slow growing nails, this could take up to a year. And don't buy the stuff at Sally's. It is for topical fungus, like a mold. And it's not the same thing!

Right on! And if one remedy doesn't work, try another until your nail starts staining black.


There is more than one type of nail fungus, and what works for one may not work for another.

Go to Sally's Beauty Supply. Pay 15$ for a bottle of nail fungus cure and apply it until the original growth grows off. This is what is used when fungus gets under acrylic nails. It works.

My dad had this problem, to treat it simply soak the infected foot or feet in vinegar. It don't smell to great but it does the trick. Just 100%vinegar.
