How to Treat Toenail Fungus In 60 Days or Less…

Toenail fungus is embarrassing and uncomfortable. Unfortunately, toenail fungus can also be difficult to treat. Conventional treatments are expensive and may lead to adverse side effects. Often, people turn to home remedies to treat the symptoms of toenail fungus. With effort, home remedies will eliminate the symptoms of toenail fungus. Some treatments will revere the physical effects of a fungal infection within 60 days.

However, these treatments must be used consistently or the fungus may reappear when the treatment is discontinued. Toenails may take as long as six months to grow out. Continuing treatment until the toe has completely grown out is the best way to prevent reinfection. Here are three popular home remedies to treat toenail fungus.

1. Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is one of the common substances used to treat toenail fungus at home. Tea tree oil is a well known toenail fungus treatment and is easy to find and relatively inexpensive. Tea tree oil should only be applied topically. It can be toxic if ingested. To treat an infected toe with tea tree oil, it is helpful to first file thickened nails down so only a thin layer of nail covers the toe. Fungal infections originate at the cuticle and under the nail, so it is important that any treatment penetrate these areas. Coat a clean cotton ball or swab with the tea tree oil. Apply the oil over the nail, making sure the oil reaches underneath the nail. Continue the treatment twice a day until the fungus is eliminated.

2. Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is another natural toenail fungus treatment. Oil of oregano is reputed to be more effective than tea tree oil, but it is more difficult to find and more expensive than tea tree oil. Unlike tea tree oil, oil of oregano can be ingested in small amounts. Apply to toes in the same method as with the tea tree oil. Additionally, oil of oregano may be taken orally. For fungal infections, 1-3 drops should be taken three times a day. Be aware that the use of oil of oregano often produces a strong pizza-like odor that may be unpleasant to some.

3. Vapor rub

Another readily available toenail fungus treatment is mentholated vapor rub. Apply the vapor rub on the nail and also around the toes. This treatment is most effective when used in conjunction with tea tree oil. The treatments can be alternated or vapor rub can be applied after the tea tree oil.

Don't get me wrong, the above cures that I just listed work. The only negative is they can take quite awhile to work. Some have reported using the above treatments for over 6 months before it cleared.
