Does vinegar work for curing toenail fungus?

well does it? and i know you are not supposed to paint your toes, and always wear open-toe shoes, but i cant go to school like that! im not crazy!Does vinegar work for curing toenail fungus?
Apple cider vinegar most certainly can work, but the best kind to use is one from the health food store that has the ';mother'; in it (which is like scum, which is the starter) as this vinegar has natural enzymes in it that are useful to health. The Heinz brand and other store brands have been pastuerized and do not have all of their healing properties. The enzymes in Heinz and other pastuerized brands have been killed.

Bragg's Pure Apple Cider Vinegar is about the best there is on the market. A quart will cost you about $5-$7 dollars, depending on store, but it is the best.

You should most likely soak your toe in vinegar twice a day, for at least 1/2 hour a day, for best results. And yes, the Ti Tree oil will also help, if you apply it topically inbetween soaks. It is best used with DMSO (found on internet) as this will help your body absorb the Ti Tree oil immediately.Does vinegar work for curing toenail fungus?
Vinegar might work.....but.....

also try Alpha Lipoic Acid (1,000 mg.).
Yes, white vinegar applied daily around the whole nail. Also peroxide is noted as a cure. It takes several months for either to be effective as the nail grows, you trim off the affected nail and eventually end up with healthy toe nails. You are quite correct in not painting your nails. As far as going to school and not being like the rest of your class mates - you are not cattle following the leader, you are your own person and nothing wrong at all with being the trend setter, they don't need to know you are healing a problem!
Toe nail fungal infection are caused primarily due to fungal infection of the nails of the toe. The fungal infections cause thickening of the nails. If not treated the fungal infection can spread to other nails and there is always a chance of secondary infection by bacteria. Apple cider vinegar is a very good bactericidal and fungicidal agent. Regular use of Apple cider vinegar can resolve the fungal infection and prevent its relapse.

How To Take: Soak your toenails for 15 - 20 minutes in basin full of warm water and natural apple cider vinegar mixed in equal proportion. When done, dry your toenails thoroughly.the treatment should be repeated for at least three months for complete resolution of toe nail fungal infections.
use listerien mouth wash
A mix of Clorox and water might work as long as it is topical.

Like a tablespoon in a glass of water then swab the area with a Q-tip.
Try tea tree oil. It is an antifungal.
Yes. Apple cider vinegar is the best. Never wear the same shoes two days in a row. Fungus likes a warm, moist, dark environment. Shoes need two days to fully dry out. Soak feet 20-30 min 3-5 days a week depending on how bad the infestation is. Put on clean socks every day as well.
