Looking for a natural toenail fungus treatments can be as simple as taking a walk to your kitchen. Getting rid of a fingernail fungus or toenail fungus may take several days or even weeks to see any real results but with proper care and a little persistence the problem can be cured by yourself.
Fungus under toenails is a common problem and it can happen to anyone. The fungus often causes swelling, inflamation, yellowing of the nail and sometimes the nail completely falls off. The affected nail is usually not in any pain but if the fungus isn't treated the infection can spread making it a lot worse.
There are many home remedies that can also get rid of the infection as well. Many of these home remedies are ingredients most people already have in their home. The following list includes just a few of the many home remedies that can be used:
The first treatment I will discuss is Apple cider vinegar. Apple cider vinegar kills bacteria and fungi, this will help stop the fungus from spreading to other nails. When using the apple cider vinegar make sure to submerge the nail for at least 30 minutes a day until the fungus begins to fade away.
Another popular nail fungal infection treatment is oregano oil. This oil is known to speed up the recovery process because it has antibacterial and antifungal properties which help the body get rid of the infection quickly. To use oregano oil, simply add 2 drops of oil with 1 tsp of olive oil and apply to infected nail. Continual use of this mixture 2 times a week for at least 30 minutes each time will show an improvement in as little 3 weeks.
Another home remedy is listerine mouthwash. This may be surprising but the same mouthwash that kills germs in the mouth will also help in curing your nail fungus. When choosing the listerine remedy, mix a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and listerine. Let the nail soak for a minimum of 30 minutes then completely dry the nail. Using this solutiom 2 times a day will show significant improvememt in a matter of weeks.
Lemon Juice can also be used as a home remedy because the juice contains antiseptic and antifungal properties. The infection under the toenails will stop spreading because the citric acid in the lemon juice will help to cure the problem. Lemon juice should be applied for 30 minutes then rinsed off with warm water. This procedure should be repeated a couple times a week to achieve maximum results.
The last home remedy I want to discuss are essential oils such as lavender, orange and tea tree. These are great options in taming the nail fungus because they have antifungal properties which help speed the recovery time.
When using essential oils it is always best to use a dropper, if your skin is sensative it is a good idea to balance the essential oils with equal parts olive oil or grapeseed oil. Mixing the essential oils with olive oil helps to dilute the potency. Apply the oils and let sit on infected area for 30 minutes before removing with warm water. Keep up with this procedure 2-3 times a day and the recovery time will be much quicker.
All of these remedies are inexpensive and many of us already have them in our kitchen. It is important to take care of any fungal issues that arise right away to prevent the infection from spreading. It is important to use the ingredients properly and make sure no skin allergies exist before applying to the infected area.
If these home remedies are followed correctly and done consistently the appearance of the toenail fungus should drastically decrease. As long as the treatments are kept regular the nail infection will heal quickly, and the chances of losing the nail are slim.
