Re: help needed...nail fungus..

Have you tried the two home remedies: lemon juice or Vick's Vaporub? I've had luck with the lemon juice and know people who swear by the Vick's.

Re: help needed...nail fungus..

You just apply to the nail...twice a day. But don't do both at the same time!
Just one or the other.

Re: help needed...nail fungus..

I've also heard of the Vicks cure.

I used to have a fungus problem on my big toe too. Then, last spring, I jammed the toe really bad, and the nail turned black and fell off. It is just about fully grown back, and it is completely free of fungus. Problem solved. (I suggest trying the Vicks cure first. The way I did it hurts like crazy!!)

Cool Re: help needed...nail fungus..


Hi David614
Oh my gosh, that must have hurt like heck..
That would be one way of getting rid of the fungus, but I think I will pass......do not like pain...so will give the vicks a try....
thanks for your reply...

Re: help needed...nail fungus..

I also have it just on one toe. I'm assuming the Vicks or lemon juice simply dry up the area? As far as the lemon juice, can it be that stuff in the bottle from the store, or only fresh squeezed? And apply to the top of the nail? The fungus seems to be between the nail & the skin. And how long til any changes were noticed with the lemon juice?

Sorry for all the questions, I'd just like to get this problem cleared up soon. If lemon juice doesn't do it, I'm gonna try Vicks. Thanks
