Another remedy that works is tea tree oil, apply it directly or diluted with vitamin E , it only took 2 weeks to heal my(2 yr old) sons' thumb.
: : : : : : : It's called Vicks VapoRub... Really. You all remember when you were little and had a cold, your mom would rub this on your chest at night. I know it sounds crazy but I just started using this on my toenail a few weeks ago, I do this twice a day, once in the mourning and again at night. It's truly working. I think it's the camphor that's in it. But the normal color of my nail is coming back, and the nail is healing. So to anyone who has givin up (I know I did), try this. You can buy it in any drug store, and it's alot cheaper than the prescriptions your doctor will write out for you. I hope this helps...

: : : : : : Rita, how long did it take before you started to see an improvement?
: : : : : Devion, I have been using Vicks for two weeks now and I saw improvement in the first week. And now after only two weeks, I just can't tell you how happy :-) I am with the results. Like I said in my post, the nail color is back to normal and the nail is healing. I'm not going to stop using the Vicks. I'll keep doing my daily routine day and night until the jar is empty, then I'll go back to the doctor I'll tell him what I've been doing, and we will take it from there....

: : : : Rita, Did your doctor tell you to use this, and did you have it a long time?
: : : No, my doctor has no idea that I'm using the Vicks, and I have had this problem for about five years on just one toe.. He (my doctor) wanted me to start using Lotrimin, but I did not like the idea that a pill that may help cure toenail fungus can cause liver damage... Listen guys, This is working for me, I can't really say it will work for everyone. But I have tried almost everything else and this seems to be working just fine. I would really like to hear from anyone who starts using Vicks to see if they have the same results that I have had. Good luck!!!

: : I stumbled across this web site looking for help for my husband. We saw the article about Vicks. My husband started the program last Friday and this
: is Wednesday, and I can not make you believe how much better his fungus is. Thank you very much.
: Sue, I'm so happy that the Vicks has starting working for your husband, and I am also happy to be sharing this info to anyone with the same problem that I have had for the past few years. Keep up the good work!! :-)
: Please keep me posted.
