5 natural toenail fungus cures and how to prevent it

Toenail fungus often occurs as a yellow spot or even a white spot. This spot is often found under the tip of your toenail. As the infection deepens, the fungus causes discoloration, thickening of your nail and the toenail edge crumbles. If your toenail is painful, definite medical attention is needed. However, even if treatment is successful; toenail fungus could return.

What are the signs that you have toenail fungus?

A thickened toenail
Whitish to a yellow-brown discoloration on your toenail.
Crumbly, brittle or ragged toenail edge
Distorted shape
Unpleasant smell

Natural toenail fungus cures:

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Because Apple Cider Vinegar is mildly acidic; rubbing your toenails with the liquid as often as possible kills bacteria and fungi.

2. Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil is a natural toenail fungus cure. The antifungal properties are superb for other types of skin issues too.

3. Baking Soda

Baking Soda is often used to kills odors and works well against a toenail fungus.

4. White Vinegar

In addition to its powerful antifungal properties; white vinegar helps the PH balance of your skin.

5. Oil of Oregano

This oil has antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, analgesic and anitiparasitic properties. Added to that, it has antifungal properties too. To use this in the best way:

- Mix three drops of Oil of Oregano with a teaspoon of virgin olive oil.
- Apply it to the toenail fungus and let it rest for about 30 minutes
- Rinse the mixture off and make sure that your toes are dried completely. Leaving your toes wet could leave a way for bacteria to grow.

Wash your feet regularly and wash your hands thoroughly after touching an infected area.
- Trim your nails straight across and file down any thickened areas. Disinfect the nail clippers after using.
