  • How do you use it? Just rub it on? How often? I'm definitely going to try it. Sounds way better than the Rx meds with all their side effects.

  • - Soak your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toe nails looking healthy. Mouthwash contains several compounds and alcohols like salicylate thymol and euchalyptol which combine to form a strong toenail fungus treatment.

    - Put equal amount of tea tree oil and lavender oil on a cotton ball or swab. Dab it under the top edge of the toe nail and surrounding area 2 or 3 times a day. Tea tree oil is natural antibiotic and lavender will help fight the infection and prevent skin irritation, as it has antiseptic properties.

  • For a natural cure put 4 tsp. of sol-u-Mel in hot water and soak for 20-30 minutes, morning and night for one week. After soaking, apply Dermatin Antifungal Cream as directed. It will kill fungus and bacteria. T36-C5, followed by Renew Intensive Skin Therapy or MelaGel could also be used each morning and night. If there is no improvement after one week, descontinue us and consult your health care provider if you haven't already. Be sure to wear clean white cotton (if possible) socks daily. These should be washed only using EcoSense Laundry System . Don't use store-bought laundry products because too often they contain harmful chemicals. Each time you change socks, dribble a few draps of T36-C5 on the clean soks. Rub them together before putting them on. You might even spray the inside of your shoes with a mxture of one-half ounce of Sol-U-Mel with four ounces of water.
