I used tea tree oil and had really great results. It wasn't fast, but after using it for a month or so, I saw such a difference! I used it in the morning and at night. I got the tea tree oil from Amazon.com. It would probably be cheaper at the health food store. I was happy with the results.

It seems we have a large variety of natural remedies. I will keep them handy for future reference. For now, I use coconut oil after soaking and/or cleaning my feet. I apply liberally, then put on a pair of socks. Coconut oil is an antibacterial, anti-fungal so it's worked like what my podiatrist prescribed but which I couldn't afford.

As to how much time? I never kept track, I did notice that within a week my feet quit itching if that helps. I do the coconut oil once a day now as a preventative. It also helps by keeping moisture out from between the toes due to the oil being there instead. I think that makes a difference besides keeping my feet soft too.

I would suggest you visit a good dermatologist. My mom had a nail fungus and tried all her friends "home" remedies. She finally went to the dermatologist and he gave her some meds to take care of the problem.

The fungus grew out as the nails grew long. It has never come back. Worth a try.

I have this on the middle toe of my right foot. I used Vick's vapor rub on it for 6 months, every time the nail grew out, my son would cut off the excess (I can't bend well enough anymore). It isn't totally healed but it is not sore. When applying the Vick's use rubber gloves, this way it doesn't get all over your hands, then wipe the gloves with a rag (kept just for this purpose). make sure to wear socks after applying to foot.

What is a good home remedy for toe nail fungus?

My husband has the same problem with toe nail fungus and he uses a home remedy. Buy a bag of cotton balls and cut each in half since you don't need to use a full cotton ball. Saturate the cotton ball with cider vinegar and apply to each toe nail before going to bed each night.

You have to be consistent with this treatment.

The reason why he won't take medication that the doctor prescribed is that it could destroy his liver over time.

I've heard soaking the foot in apple cider vinegar works. A co-worker swore by it. I've never used the method myself, though, so I don't know for sure.

I'm not sure toenail fungus ever completely goes away. In the past three years I have used a doctor's prescription, a natural vinegar/herb soak, oil of oregano, tea tree oil and Vicks. I can tell when something is killing the fungus because the nail gets black in places and around the edges.

The nails are better than when I began. There are a few different fungi that can cause the disease, so I guess it is natural that one remedy works on certain kinds of nail fungus, and another remedy works better on another kind. One thing is for sure, though: All the remedies worked better than the foot doctor's expensive stuff.

Check out peoplespharmacy.com. It's run by 2 pharmacists who know what they're doing. Search for toenail fungus. They have lots of home remedies and people post what works and what doesn't. I've found some very good info there that I found nowhere else.

To get rid of a toenail fungus, use Vick's Salve. (Vick's Salve has been around what seems like forever.) Spread it on and under the infected toenail.

Works like a charm. Much cheaper than buying preparations made for toenail fungus. By sewingmamma

Thick yellow nails are a sign of fungus. Find a fungus remover or rub toes with vicks or similar menthol type product at night.

Use Tea Tree Oil every day. Just dab it on with a cotton ball. It will take a few months, but it worked for me. My doctor gave me this advice.

I have tried both tea tree oil and Vicks. They both really do work, but you have to be really dedicated about using them. Twice a day, and you can't forget. Mine were growing in clear after about three weeks of use, but then I stopped (stupid, I know) and it started coming back. Be diligent and you will see results! Vinegar also works but I found the tee tree oil and vicks to be stronger. Also, try and wear open-toed shoes or sandals. That helped a lot. Socks are a breeding ground for bacteria. Good luck!

Reader's Digest had an article on it this month, and their recommendation is half Listerine (the amber colored one--it won't stain your feet like the blue will, apparently) and half white vinegar; you soak your toes in it a couple of times a week.

I watched Dr. OZ today and he suggested the use of myrrh. If I understood, I think it is an oil.
