Tea tree oil is fairly cheap. It usually costs <$10 if ordered online. But at that price you could just go to the drug store & get a topical medication.

The majority of the articles focus on treating athlete’s foot (Tinea Pedis) and other superficial skin fungus infections such as the scalp and ringworm.

  • One study found 100% tea tree oil effective against nail fungus in killing toenail fungus.
  • The study also compared it to a topical medical treatment (clomitrazole) in effectiveness.
  • A followup study found that tea tree oil was less effective than medications at lower concentrations.
  • This lower concentration still did kill some nail fungus, but less effectively.
  • Since athlete’s foot fungus is more superficial, it should be more effective than for toenail fungus!
