    I had fungus on sole of foot tried vinegar, tea tree oil, oregano oil and two lots of prescription medicines. eventually got rid of it, with twice daily soaks of warm water, bleach, salt and antiseptic . Also rubbed in some anti fungal cream before going to bed. Took 5 months trial of everything before the bleach baths worked,? this was the only thing that cleared it up

    I have had a ToeNail fungus (onychomycosis) for over 10 years. I have been prescribed a bunch of prescription cremes and have tried EVERY natural remedy you can think of. Additionally I have been told by most foot doctors that I will not get rid of it without the help of the oral medication which I never wanted to try.

    I have finally started to see my toenail fungus completely gone after 11 months. My toenail was 70% yellow and discolored. Now there is a tiny amount left at the tip of nail as the new nail has been pushing the old nail out..... but the results are amazing.

    What did I do differently this time around?? I wore no socks or shoes for the majority of my working day. The pandemic forced me to work from home which allowed me the luxury of letting my feet breath all day after applying the cream which I believe led to my success. I also added a twice week daily epsom salt with warm water foot soak for 15 minutes. I was also using a prescribed solution of Ciclopirox,Fluconazole,Terbinafine until it ran out and then started using a econazole cream I had left over from a few years earlier. I hope this finds someone who is need of help.

    To all toenail fungus patients. This is precious info.

    I suffered from toenail fungus for 10 years. I didn't even get treatment for a long time because I tried a few oils and creams and none of them worked. It spread from my pinky toe on my left foot to all the other toes on that foot. Strangely, it didn't spread to my other foot.

    Anyways, I finally went to the doctor because my toes were getting uncomfortable in my shoes because of the toenails which grew larger and were difficult to cut. He prescribed Lamisil pills (two tablets once daily, forgot dosage). Also gave me Jublia toe fungus solution, which you apply once daily. I'm not lying, this combination took care of my fungus in 9 months. You use both at the same time.

    You have to try it, and don't wait like I did because mine probably took longer than a case which hasn't been around for 10 years!!

    Good luck y'all!!

    I have suffered from toe nail fungus for two years and have lost one big toe nail twice. I have spent a lot of time and money on pharmacy treatments and natural ones with little or no benefit. I had to call on a chiropodist to help at one point. He recommended Vicks Vaporub. I looked into this and found that the antimicrobial in Vicks is thymol oil.

    Thymol oil is an essential oil produced from the Thyme plant. The oil is too powerful to be applied by itself and has to be diluted in a carrier oil. I bought the thymol oil and grapeseed oil to dilute it in online from an aromatherapy site (Quinessence Aromatherapy) adding 2.5ml of thymol to 100ml of grapeseed oil - so a 2.5% solution.

    The oil is able to get behind and under the affected nails. I have found gently using a tooth pick behind the nail helps the oil get down to the problem areas.

    The thymol treatment is proving really successful for me and I would suggest that anyone suffering from persistent toe nail fungus should consider its use.

    Hi, I am also fighting long term toenail fungus. Has anyone tried any biotics products such as Nail Biotics +Plus? If so, what kind of results have you had? Is it dangerous to the liver?

    Apple cider vinegar is a popular remedy for toenail fungus due to its antifungal properties. If you want to treat your fungus using ACV, you can soak your feet in a mixture of warm water and the vinegar for about 15 minutes, twice a day.
