If you suspect you suffer from toe nail fungus there is no reason to panic. The key to getting rid of it is consistency. Some physicians still argue that there are only prescription medicines that will heal it. They claim natural remedies waste time and money but in truth their are many natural treatments that do yield results if continually used in a medicinal way. Below is a collection of different ways that you can rid yourself of the nasty fungus and get your nails back to looking the best they’ve ever been in years.
Vicks Vapor Rub and Plastic Wrap
This toe nail fungus treatment is an unusual approach to healing but many claim it’s legit. To do this you will need Vicks Vapor Rub, plastic wrap, and rubber gloves if you don’t want to risk the transfer of the fungus to your fingernails. Every night apply a thin amount of Vicks Vapor Rub to your infected nails. Wrap each nail that is infected with the plastic wrap. Leave it undisurbed as you sleep. Keep your feet clean. Wash them each day and remember to also change your socks daily. Repeat until it is gone.
Tea Tree Oil
This all natural toe nail fungus medication will work as long as you use it two times a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Be sure to keep your feet out of socks as much as possible. Fungus loves to breed in moist places so it’s important to keep your feet as dry as possible.
Another thing to add about this toe nail fungus treatment is the quality of the tea tree oil itself. Look and see who manufactures it. Anything that is processed will be of lesser quality. You need to apply the most potent dose of this to see results.
Lamasil has been on the market for some time. It does work for some and others it actually has been linked to death in some. Big Pharma won’t advertise it obviously, but if you happen to be type 2 Diabetic, don’t take it. Type 2 Diabetics have a severely compromised immune system and the side effects from the drug are less than desireable. It takes months of continual use and should only be attempted if all other avenues have failed.
If you feel your immune system needs a boost, you can also take Vitamin C supplements every day. Adding fresh (the key here is fresh) minced garlic to your salad each day or eating it raw from a spoon will help too. Garlic is a natural anti-fungal. Don’t overdo it though. It acts as a blood thinner so you may want to check with your physician if you are on any sort of medications to be sure there won’t be any negative interactions.
The important thing to remember about any toenail fungus treatment is consistency! It can take months to get rid of nail fungus. New nail has to be allowed to grow. Nail fungus can come back and if the treatment is inconsistent, the fungus will only return. So, the best advice is to be patient. In time, all of your efforts will pay off and you will have your feet and nails looking perfectly healthy again.
