Every second person out there suffers from toenail fungus. It’s really painful and ugly.
I know women who have made a couple of surgeries to remove it and ended up without a nail or having the same problem again.
Even going “under the knife” is dangerous and could come out useless.
Here is what can cause toenail fungus:
- Athlete’s foot.
- Hyperhidrosis (a disorder that makes you sweat a lot).
- Nail injury.
- Poor blood circulation due to peripheral vascular disease.
- The weakened immune system, such as from an autoimmune disorder or HIV.
When your toenails get infected, your nail will become thickened and change its color.
If you avoid this without toenail fungus treatment, hoping it will cure by itself, the skin beneath and around your nail will become inflamed and really painful.
This brings the question, what treats toenail fungus naturally? Moreover, how to know if toenail fungus is dying?
I have to say, it’s really hard to treat it once it occurs, but these natural remedies really proved themselves as the right choices for doing the procedure.
Here we go:
Apple Cider Vinegar and Hydrogen Peroxide
Treating your toenails with apple cider vinegar is very popular. Just soak up your feet in vinegar and water for at least 30 minutes. You should repeat this twice a day to kill the fungus.
It’s the acidity of the vinegar that restores the pH balance in your nails and helps you soothe the thing that caused this infection in the first place.
If this doesn’t give you the results you were looking for, try mixing Apple Cider Vinegar with hydrogen peroxide. This will form even better solution in wiping out bacteria and viruses.
Use a 50-50 mixture of 3% hydrogen peroxide every day. The fungus will be long gone.
Tea Tree Essential Oil
People started using 100% Tea Tree Essential Oil to maximize their results. After few months of treatment, doctors have concluded that this oil works even better than the regular antifungal treatments.
Just paint the oil on the affected nails twice a day for the next 2 months. You will notice a new nail growing. It should grow out completely so the fungus will be eradicated.
Baking soda is an alkaline ingredient that will bring your pH level to balance. It will make it really hard for the bacteria to grow.
- Mix two parts of baking soda to one part of water to make a paste
- Take a cotton swab and apply the paste to the nail
- Leave it for 10 minutes
- Rinse the paste off and pat the nail dry.
- Repeat this procedure 2 times a day
There you go, friends. I hope this helps.
