Anyone who has developed the problem of their toenails turning thick and brown because of a fungal infection will want to learn how to destroy the toenail fungus. Toenails that have a fungal infection look very unattractive and in some cases can lead to medical complications. For this reason, it is important to learn how to kill toenail fungus effectively.
How to Kill Toenail Fungus
Here are some great ways to treat toenail fungus. However, it should be noted that these methods are merely for treating the problem and may not eradicate the source of the fungi. The simple truth about many of these home remedies is that they may offer temporary relief but, can’t offer a permanent cure. Such a result can only be achieved through the application of laser treatment of the effected area.
Many people who have tried the Vick’s Vaporub treatment say that this remedy has worked for them. Simply apply a thick coating of the Vaporub ointment to the affected nail at night when you are about to go to bed. Cover the foot with a sock in order to protect it. Keep doing this every night for several months. You should see results in a few months. Many people have reported that the new nail that grew in was free of the fungal infection.
Listerine Mouthwash Treatment for Toenail Fungus
File down the toenail so it is not as thick and the Listerine solution can penetrate it more easily. Each night soak the foot in Listerine mouthwash for at least fifteen minutes. Many people say this remedy has worked for them after using it for several months.
Apple Cider Vinegar
File down the toenail and without soaking the foot in water, soak it directly in a strong solution of apple cider vinegar. Let the feet soak for at least half an hour each day in this solution. Afterwards, dry the feet and toes thoroughly.
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil has a reputation for killing bacteria and viruses. Apply several drops of tea tree oil to the affected nail every night before bed. The tea tree oil will kill the fungus if it can make contact with it. It will take several months to have an effect.
Laser Therapy for Killing Toenail Fungus
All these remedies listed above have worked for some people. However, until recently it was difficult to find a remedy that was extremely effective and very quick. Now there is a remedy that will destroy toenail fungus quickly and completely in as little as twenty minutes. There is no longer any need to try a home remedy for several months to see if it will work for you.
This extremely effective toenail fungus treatment is done with lasers. The laser uses a short blast of very powerful energy to destroy the fungus in the toenail. Very often, one treatment is all that is required in order to eliminate the problem. In some cases, one or two follow-up treatments may be needed.
