Toenail Fungus Remedies?

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all, I picked up the a nasty toenail fungus about 10 years ago. Its remained on my big toe for about 9 years, this past year it has spread to 3 other toes. It actually started on the top of the nail with tiny white speckles. Over the years it has moved to underneath the nail, and if i dont remove it, a horrible smelling waxy type yeast grows underneath whilst the nail crumbles. (horrible image i know)

Things ive tried:

- Cutting the infected parts off and applying daktarin cream twice per day

Saw minor results, but seems like the fungus adapted to it and kept growing

- Applying vics vaporub twice a day

Saw immediate results but then it stopped working a few months. fungus overcame it.

- Tablets

These worked but i must have stopped taking them too early so it all came back

- Tea tree oil (Im currently applying this twice  a day)

- Dipping foot in apple cider vinegar (Im currently doing this once a day for 20 mins)

I'm starting to run out of ideas now. It's so resilient I believe this thing has a brain! I worked in a hot country for one month and never wore shoes, funnily enough it started to go. But this is impossible to do in my current job.

Are any of you seeing any results with anything?
