    Toenail Fungus

    I know someone who has toenail fungus. Does anyone know how to get rid of it besides going to a podiatrist and getting a prescription or having it lasered? I wonder if soaking your feet in water with white vinegar in it would get rid of it. I know it will kill bacteria but don't know about fungus. Thanks for your help.

    My doctor did not want me to take Lamisil, which is generally prescribed but can cause liver damage. Instead, she told me to try Vick's Vapor Rub. And when that didn't work for me, she said to try Tea Tree Oil, and it took 6 months, but it worked for me.
