I was told this by a podiatrist

A Podiatrist is a Medical Doctor that specializes in the foot…so I'm pretty certain that if he/she recommended Vicks for your foot fungus, then I'd definitely try it.

Unfortunately toenail fungus is difficult to treat because your feet are warm …. The cure is so simple. take distilled white vinegar and put drops on your toes in a bowl of water.

Its news to me there this pill for your nails but its exipensive and its not good for your liver and kidneys ask your doctor.

I actually just read that in a medical column in the newspaper…guess you could try it to see.

Probably not. Try tea tree oil, this will kill all fungus. (by comparison, vinegar will kill about 80% of all mold types, and mold is a fungus) I've been using tea tree oil on mine for about three weeks and half the hard encrustation under the toenail is gone; I can dig out a little more each day with the end of a nail file. now I have a big space under half of my toenail that used to be packed with hard crust from the fungus.

I just put a few drops of tea tree oil under the edge of my toenail and let it soak in; I do this in the morning and again at night. it is having a devastating effect on the toenail fungus.

Fungus grows with water, so diluting vinegar with water (when vinegar is already diluted with water) is putting mainly water on the fungus. If you use pure tea tree oil there is no water at all, and this seems to me to be a much better idea.

Just telling you what I know works.
