  • research PEROXIDE...I heard that if you soak your feet in peroxide every day that will kill ANY type of fungus on your feet and help your nails!

  • First go to the doctor to make sure you don't have Diabetes. You can soak your feet in Tea, for two weeks and it will get rid of it. The toxin in the tea will heal fungus problems.
