Toenail fungus?

I have this weird toe fungus type of thing going on. It's more like dirt underneath my nail but it's white and smells funky! I pick it out with either my fingernail or a nail filer. It's always there no matter if i just stepped out of the shower or the pedicure spa.

I need a solution or a treatment to get rid of this toe stuff. My friend told me to soak my foot in Listerine! Is this a true remedy or is there another solution.Toenail fungus?
I have heard that soaking in diluted Listerine will help with toenail fungus. Another I heard of that works is Vick's Vapor Rub. Either way, it is not going to disappear overnight. It will take some time. You could see a doctor, but the medications that they can give you take months to work, if they work at all. In many cases, these medications are not effective and some have side effects as well. In short, there is no one size fits all solution to toenail fungus. And be aware that once it does go away, it can easily come back. In the meantime, try some home remedies and see if they work for you. And always keep your feet dry as fungus thrives in a warm, moist environment such as on your toenails because your feet are inside of shoes all day long and cannot 'breathe.' Also, try to alternate pairs of shoes, sneakers - whatever, each and every day so that the last pair you wore has a chance to dry out prior to wearing them again. I've been told that it takes a typical pair of shoes anywhere from 24-48 hours to completely dry out from perspiration.

Good luck!Toenail fungus?
I too had that problem in the past and I was treated by a specialist with Lamisill a pill for about 6-weeks, it worked and haven't had any problems since. I hope this helps
