Ten Home Remedies for Nail Fungus

Nail fungus is a common problem that affects countless adults. As a result, it is no surprise that people have come up with plenty of home remedies. While medical treatment typically provides the best result, there are some affordable, and often surprising, at home treatments that have proven to work quite well for some.

Top 10 Home Remedies for Nail Fungus

1. Vicks VapoRub. Apply liberally to the nails twice daily, and cover with clean cotton socks or gloves.

2. Listerine.
There are a few alternatives for this one. One popular method is to mix equal parts of Listerine and apple cider vinegar. Apply to the nails using an eyedropper. Some people swear by using straight Listerine. In any case, it is believed that the herbal ingredients can destroy fungus.

3. Tea Tree Oil.
Tea tree oil is a natural and powerful antiseptic. As a result, it is often very effective in killing fungus. It can be applied directly to the nail, or it can be added to epsom salt soaks.

4. Bleach.
It’s no secret that bleach kills fungus and bacteria. When applied directly to the nails, it has been known to clear up fungal infections.

5. Urine. This may be one of the more off-the-wall home remedies for nail fungus, but for plenty of people claim that soaking their nails in their own urine has done wonders for treating fungal infections. As an added bonus, doing so also seems to get rid of calluses and dry patches of skin

6. Vaginal Yeast Infection Creams. When applied to the nails, these creams can sometimes kill the infection.

7. Garlic. Crush up one clove of garlic, and apply it to the infected nails as a paste. You could also use the garlic that comes in a jar. This remedy is a bit smelly, but it has worked quite well for some people.

8. Yogurt. According to some people, yogurt is more than a tasty snack. Spread it on the area affected by fungus, and let dry. The active cultures just might be able to destroy the fungal infection.

9. Vinegar. Straight vinegar can change the pH of the nail. This makes it impossible for fungus to grow. Apply regularly using a cotton swab or an eyedropper.

10. Isopropyl Alcohol. Alcohol is commonly used to clean out injuries or to treat or prevent infection. For some people, it is also effective in clearing fungal infections when applied to the area regularly. Unlike some other treatments, it dries quickly and isn’t very messy.

When left untreated, fungal infections of the nails can lead to more serious complications. While many people have had great results with at home treatment remedies, they are not always effective. To ensure the best results, it is always best to consult with a medical professional. This is especially true if you have already tried home remedies without any success or if the infection seems to have gotten worse.
