  • You may need to wear sandals to let your feet air out. Fungus LOVES dark moist places. Also soak you feet in vinegar and put you shoes in the freezer for a day or two if you can.  I wraped my shes in a walmart sack do no shoe can in contact with food.  These things work.

  • soak your feet in apple cider vinegar..the acid in the vinegar will break down the fungus...
    cider vinegar is also good for dieting,diabetes,acne,ring worms,doin floors..

  • Use Listerine on your toe nails, soak a cotton ball in it and dab your toe nails on top and underneath.

  • Try washing the affected area with Antibacterial Liquid Soap. Soak for 15 minutes in 1 quart of warm water and 1 ounce Sol-U-Mel. Pat dry. Apply T36-C5 (Melaleuca oil) to the toenail morning and night, and then follow with Triple Antibiotic Ointment or MelaGel. Cover the area with a loose bandage. Chronic infections may require repeated applications for several months. - also drink Melaleuca Herbal tea 2 to 4 times each day. I hope this helps - if you have any questions please contact me.
