Vicks may help, but you probably need an anti-fungal cream and/or powder. You can use lotrimin AF cream or any other similar anti-fungal product. You can order Zeasorb-AF powder through your drug store, if they don't carry it on the shelves. Or you can use yogurt. Eat plain yogurt about 3 times a week, and/or use it like a cream on the area. It will smell, but the acidophilus bacteria in the yogurt neutralizes yeast. It can take up to 6 months to clear. Keep doing what you are doing until the nail is normal.

This is also the same fungus that results in jock itch, athlete's foot, vaginitis (in women), ringworm and other skin rashes. It is the Candida Albicans fungus (yeast). While toenail fungus is not contagious, person to person, it can spread to other toes, if unchecked.

The underlying fungus can be transmitted by skin contact to other persons.

For basic information on yeast, check out the link at the bottom of the Welcome page of www.hufa.org.My husband has toenail fungus is there an easy way to get rid of it besides going to the doctor?
Toe fungi is an outward manifestation of what is going on inside the body. It is worthwhile to learn about the cause before moving forward in chosing treatment. www.CandidaExpert.com

Toenail Fungus comes from dietary habits that produce low pH and create an environment where fungus can thrive, especially in warm, moist places. Toe nail fungus is contagious. There is much speculation and heresay on the web, but the only 100% guaranteed solution is nailfungus.preventfungus.com.

Try Tea Tree oil it really works. Warm, moist environments helps fungus to grow.
U don't need doctor for that!!! Just keep them clean and totally dry for a period of time and they'll be oK!!! When I say dry I mean after a shower he should dry them with a hair dryer!!!

Also he can use a cream ';Dactarine'; if there is in your country for faster results!

There are topical medication, but the fungus is underneath the nail. These sometimes work. The most effective meds are those which works through the bloodstreme.
Go to your pharmacy; there is treatmeant which can purchased off the shelf. Its known to work
Go to local store and look in foot care section for anti fungal remedies. It will cure it temporally you might need to get a lamasil prescription to get to the root of the problem.
Lamisil --%26gt; Acidophilis Beer Soak --%26gt; DMSO/Tea Tree --%26gt; Vicks
keep clean, dry
Tea Tree Oil is supposed to be a good antifungal if you are looking for a homeopathic remedy.

It is my understanding that Lamasil, the prescription medication is very hard on kidneys and liver. I have also heard that the fungus reappears as soon as the medication is stopped. and it is very expensive. So the choices for me are to use the Tea Tree oil or live with it.
