You may get affected by the toenail fungus in damp areas such as public gyms, shower stalls or swimming pools. Toe nail fungus can spread from one toe to another or to other body parts. Athletes and people who give trauma to their toe by wear tight-fitting shoes or tight hosiery are at great risk of toe nail fungus. other reasons may be abnormal pH level of the skin, not drying off the feet thoroughly after bathing or exercise, and decreased immunity.
Here are some ways to cure it:
Toe nail fungus remedy using tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is a potent natural antiseptic and fungicide that will help fight your fungus. Apply undiluted tea tree oil with olive oil to the affected toe nail. Alternatively you can put few drops of tea tree oil on toenails and rub it thoroughly every day.

Curing toe nail fungus using warm water and natural apple cider vinegar
Soak your toenails for 15 – 20 minutes in basin full of warm water and natural apple cider vinegar mixed in equal proportion. when done, dry your toenails thoroughly. Use a hair dryer on warm setting to absorb all the moisture in and around the toes

Lather AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) creams on to your feet before going to bed. This will flush the rough scaly skin from your feet that is more prone to growing fungus
I work at a hospital and a podiatrist told me that vicks vapor rub will help. However, once you have it, you have it. You can't ever get rid of it completely, but you can make it "almost" disappear.
You’re not alone this is something that millions of Americans deal with every year. I have one a much of research on the topic (personal reasons) and here is what I found.
1st. I have heard of "home remedies" that range from Vicks Vapor Rub to Vinegar but if you follow some people’s forum post who try this it seems to never fully go away. Actually it interesting to see that even here people recomend things like Vicks Rub. it seems like this never fully cures your toenail fungus.
However there are some internet sold treatments that people report work really well. After several months of use these remedies should cure the fungus, and they all come with 100% money back guarantees so you really have nothing to loose. Check out the wellness links below because you should take a look at the actual site to get an idea of what they are all about!
