Vicks Vapor Rub for toenail fungus
Submitted by Lorna
Massage Vicks Vapor Rub on toenail and in a matter of days the toe nail will start turning dark in color.The dark color means the vicks is killing the fungus. As the toenail grows out you will cut the tonails and soon your tonails will not only look healthy but will be fungus free.
My mother-in law told me about this and she was told to do this by her doctor.This works!

It works but takes all of 6 months - I suggest you keep a jar at the toilet. Ever time you sit down on your toilet, remove the sock from the foot that has the bad toenail, and apply Vick's to the cuticle of the toe. I did this for at least 6 months and it cured my nail.
My toe grew a new, healthy nail up under the old one w/o me realizing it. Months after I used Vick's I noticed all healthy growth at and above the cuticle line but I didn't realize the toenail was growing under the old one and pushing it out of place until it fell off one day, revealing a short but beautiful nail. I'm a believer in using Vick's for toenail fungus cure.
The stupid fungus keeps coming back every 3- 4 months and they have charge me $400 each additional visit and lecture me on spores that jump on my feet from the floor and how I MUST have the steri shoe sterilizer and basically how I can never be barefoot etc etc...now I must say significant imporvement but how effective is it really if it does not kill the fungus permanantly? My laser Dr is so frustrated that his "precious laser" may not be as effective as they think??? I am a perfect guinea pig I guess, but anyway I would serious continue to pay whatever to spare the embarrasment of people asking me why in San Diego do I alway wear closed toed shoes? Yes, petty work friends are always on my case about not showing my feet, and the beach? Forget it. So finally my nails were at least flat again I was excited enough to wear polish and actually show my feet for the 1st time in 6 years and then I got a check up at the laser center and he hacked my nails downs so far to get at the fungus that now my nails are all torn up and hideous and I got to wait another 4+ months to look remotely normal again. I am now trying Vick's and hoping in conjuction with the $1000 laser treatment something gotta give...
