I have gone my whole life without nail fungus, but developed it in my one foot, on three toes. When I saw a podiatrist, he told me that the over the counter stuff really doesn't work and the prescription stuff is too dangerous as it could cause liver damage. He thought fungus was a better alternative to liver damage. So do I.
However, he said, there is a home remedy that works... Ok...what is it?
He said that you can apply Vicks Vaporub to your fungus nails. Somehow the Vicks makes an inhospitable home for the fungus. I was intrigued, and so I googled it, and sure enough, loads of people were curing their fungus with Vicks.
So I got some. On Wednesday, it will be two full weeks since I began the Vicks cure... I just take a glob on my finger and put some on each nail every morning after my shower. I do take a bath brush to my toes in the shower to remove old Vicks. When I apply the new stuff, I don't rub it in or anything.
I have to say that on the scale of: Is it getting better? Is it getting worse? Is it staying the same? I have to say it's getting better. On my big toe, I would say the fungus has been reduced about 40%. One of the online reports I read said that in three weeks her fungus was almost gone. Stay tuned.
