Heal Toenail Fungus – 1st thing- AVOID Buying any Topical Cream Online – 95% have zero scientific evidence! Understand why you have fungus then correct it! There in the vast majority of people there is no magic solution. It is like any other medical problem, understand why you are susceptible- and correct that problem. That is how you get rid of nail fungus.
Yellow and deformed nails are different from nail fungus. This is very important, so I’ll say it again! Nail fungus usually shows up after you already have yellow and deformed nails! Dr. Bakotic, the leading foot and toenail dermatopatholigist states in recent medical studies that in 70% patients, the nail was thick and yellow before fungus even got there!
1)There needs to be some microtrauma or a traumatic injury to the toenail.
2)There needs to be decreased blood flow or immune suppression for the toenail to thrive.
If you have microtrauma but are otherwise healthy, you are in great shape to heal your toenail fungus.
The home remedies and topical creams are not very effective on their own. They normally work under 40% when the conditions are right. If the conditions are not right, then there is virtually a 0% chance of them working. This does not mean that they are bad, you can combine for greater effect with strategies I will show you. There is also no harm in trying the easy solution first and seeing what happens. So see if you qualify for these home remedies:
Use Home Treatment or Over The Counter Medication if:

There is much less research behind using Listerine for toenail fungus. But like vick’s vapor rub, there is a good amount of testimonials stating it works, and the ingredients are anti-fungal. Thus there has to be something behind it.
Listerine contains the ingredients which have been independently proven to have anti-fungal properties in studies.
