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.

If your toenail is already dark and discolored from the nail fungus and you're using the Vick's Vapor rub, how are you to tell that the rub is working? Seems most have experienced the toenail becoming darker. Does the toenail get darker first and then clear up or have the natural coloring?
