About a year ago I was wearing sneakers that were just a bit too small. I didn't think about it and later found that my Big Toe Nails were slightly discolored — still not a big deal. I later noticed that the nails had grown out and I was fine with that. Later, the toe nails I noticed were half pink (normal colored) and the half that was discolored and grew back in grayish and thick.
Research determined that I had nail fungus in 1/2 of the Big Toe Nails. I used Athlete's Foot Cream and Vick's Vapor Rub for some time and noticed the infected nail was peeling/failing off. Next I purchased "Fungus no More" and have been administering it as well as the Vick's Vapor Rub without the Athlete's Foot Cream. The nails seem to be a healthy pink and the infected/discolored nails are pretty much gone.
Lastly, my concern is that the new nail isn't growing in quickly, the nail bed is dark pink around the area that was infected, and what is left on the nail is very brittle and comes off easily.
Did I do something wrong with my treatment?
Will the nail grow back as a normal healthy nail should?
Is this result to be expected?
If I did anything wrong, please let me know! Summer is here and I want my piggies out!
I've been having the same problems between feet/ toenails..fingers/ fingernails. Cracking and splitting. It's very painful. Nails are disfigured. been to the dermatologist. Trying a prescribed cream by the name of Clobetesol. not too quick of results. I don't think you did anything wrong. I've been trying everything under the sun with no avail. Let me know if you find a miracle!!
Personally, I've tried a lot of different stuff over the years. I had dealt with the combo nail fungus and athletes foot for almost 20 years. one "free" thing that did help a lot was vinegar.
It didn't help much with the nail fungus but it completely stopped the athlete's foot that I was also suffering from.
For the fungus I tried a lot of different things, including over the counter treatments, vinegar, bleach, tea tree oil, vicks and lavendar oil. some of them did make a little difference but none of them completely killed the fungus.
I also tried lamisil which worked for a while then after a couple of months I had a relapse of the nail fungus. The scary thing with the lamisil is the possible health issues you can face as a result of using it, the doctor had me take a test to make sure my liver wasn't prone to problems before he'd give me the lamisil… gulp!
In the end what finally fixed my loong term problem with nail fungus was Zeta Clear. I think what also helped is that I made it a part of my daily ritual to use it.
Another thing that I did that probably helped was throw out my old shoes. I have heard that the fungus can live in your shoes and return after treatment. So to avoid a relapse I made sure to get new shoes and throw out the old ones.
Best of Luck!
