And make that adults with a strong tolerance for unpleasant conversation. With the disclaimer out of the way, has anyone found a home cure for toenail fungus? I was clear of the dreaded nail deformation fungus till in my second career, I spend many hours a day in wet leather boots while routing pipelines and working with survey crews as the survey coordinator for the now near death Chesapeake Energy Company.

I pretty much ignored the creeping fungus for many years, then about a year ago I started using Vick's Salve daily. It seem to have slowed or halted the fungus, but can't really claim its a cure. The medical solution is a pretty drastic oral medication that my Doc didn't recommend due to potential side effects.

I'm thinking perhaps combine a Hydrogen Peroxide soak?

Anyone have any successful DIY cures?

Thanks,
RonR

I don't know how it would work on toenail fungus but many moon ago as a kid I developed a severe case of athlete's foot. The doctor had me soak the affected foot in a Clorox & water solution for several minutes a couple of times a day. I don't remember the proportions of Clorox to water. Since both are fungus it might work for you.

I bought a little bottle of something at Wally World--their generic brand "Equate" Anti-Fungal liquid. Has a little brush applicator attached to the cap. Seems to do a decent job of keeping it in check.

FWIW, I did the peroxide thing and it seems to be working. Between keeping the nail trimmed and cleaned out, and soaking with peroxide, it's just about gone now. Wasn't over night, though.

Thanks all! I've added H2O2 to the regiment. In a few months I'll know how it's working.

You all may thank me (yet again ... laalaa) for *not* enabling images here in the Greasy Spoon.

You're welcome.

I think I will have to wipe my mouse and right hand with alcohol?

"Rubbing alcohol can be effective in killing the fungus that causes toenail infections and athlete's foot. However, it will usually only eliminate surface-level bacteria in the earliest stages of an infection."

Well, I certainly wouldn't have put images up even if it were possible. But, If someone had I'd have likely looked, then tried to unlook! I do second Martin and "Thank You John"!!
