Treatment success depends on how the Vick’s vapor rub is used. The key to success is to use it for longer than 2 weeks. Results will increase from 20% all the way up to 85% !
  • Skin takes approximately 30 days to progress from the stem cells to the superficial skin.
  • For this reason treatment must be approximately 30 days in length.
  • Studies have shown that if only 2 weeks of treatment are performed, cure is achieved 20%.
  • If 4-6 weeks of treatment are maintained, then cure rate is about 65-85%
  • If you still have skin fungus after 4-6 weeks, you may have something and should go see your physician!
