It is very common because warm and dump environment is an ideal place for the fungus to grow.
But this does not mean that there isn’t a way to treat them. Quite contrary, there are a few very efficient natural ways to treat toenail fungi. Here they are:
1. Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is known for its anti-bacterial properties, which make it an excellent treatment for bacteria and fungi as well.
You can use the vinegar to make an exfoliating scrub. You just need to mix 2 teaspoons of the vinegar with one tablespoon of rice flour. Mix it until it becomes a paste and apply it to your nails. Scrub them with a tooth brush and after that wash them with water. Repeat this process every other day until you completely remove your problem.
2. Baking soda
This is another antibiotic with anti-bacterial properties that will efficiently remove the toenail fungi. It will also make your skin alkaline which will prevent fungal development in the future and make your overall skin healthier.
You just need to mix two parts of baking soda with one part of warm water. Mix them until you get a paste and apply it your toenails. Leave it for around 20 minutes to act and wash your feet with water. Repeat this process two times a day.
This is another natural anti-fungal compound. It smells strong but it is very efficient.
All you need to do is mix one tablespoon of turmeric powder with a little bit of water until you get a paste. Apply it to your toenails and leave it for 2 to 3 hours until it dries. Then wash your feet with lukewarm water. Repeat this procedure two times a day until you completely remove your problem.
4. Oregano oil
This is one of the most effective antiseptics that come from plants. It also smells good and will make your toes fresh again.
You just need to mix 5 drops of oregano essential oil with 2 teaspoons of olive oil (or any other oil) and apply this mixture to your toenails. Leave it for around 10 minutes to act and scrub your nails with a toothbrush. Repeat this process every day.
You can use these remedies as long as you like, especially if you constantly suffer from toenail fungi. You can just make them part of your everyday cleaning routine. There are no side effects since everything is homemade and natural.
