|We have many people sending in their photos of fungus. Here are
some submitted by a Foot Service company; you get the idea - these
photos show toes that are worth working on.
Jeff sends in "My toenail Fungus" (mostly on the big toe) not
very clear photo:
Some writers tell of different methods they use: Subject:
toenail fungus The beer soaks do work, but you must be patient and
persistent. I evidentially had a bad case of toenail fungus. I used
this method daily for about six months. I saw initial results in
about a month. I now have a healthy toenail! Susan.
Another fungus story, no photos this time:
no foto. just a story. i had it. doctors at kaiser prescribed the
internal med. but about that time, about 2 years ago, dean edel
reported on his radio show, a danish study which had a small N, he
didn't say how many. But treatment was topical, local, and the
success was one hundred percent. It took the usual 4 to 6 months.
the meds are 1) urea cream, 40 percent solution, Rx., and 2)
ciclopirox 8 percent solution., also Rx. they are applied together,
and protected each day by a bandage or rubber glove finger.
I had it bad. left and right big toes were black and raised up from
all the stuff pushing under it. After a month it was getting better,
after 3 months was almost completely clear, and after four months,
totally. i kept it up for 2 months more, oh, yeah, no side effects.

I have had nail fungus for over 30 years. I have tried everything
and I mean everything except tea tree oil. I have had short term
success but when it returns it returns with a vengeance. I use a
small razor blade scraper to get off the necrotic debris. But
basically I have given up.
Thanks for your site.
Editor: Thanks, Latz, but the quality is so poor we could only
use one of the four you sent in, and we tried to make it
better. It is possible to see the fungus, but please send in photos
that show the fungus clearly!
My mom-in-law has this fungus & we are researching treatment. She
is 93 & lives with us. What can be used in the laundry as a
disinfectant to prevent spread to other garments, or is that
Thank you, Lisa
attached file are pictures of my toenails. I have dealt with this
fungus for many years and am willing to do anything to get rid of
Mr. Carl Y., Clarksville TN
Your pictures tell my story and my long time suffering. If you
could put my story on your website that would be wonderful.
My study of toe and finger nails fungus is very extensive as I was
afflicted with this fungus for more than 20 years. I tried every
doctor's medication and every over the counter remedy I could find.
The medications and products tried over the years are countless. All
ten toenails were infected and in a very sick state. I feared that I
will never be cured of this infection, until one day I read in the
Alive Magazine an advertising of natural way to stop ONYCHOMYCOSIS.
I ordered the remedy and now after one year of applying the paste I
am free of the infection and my toenails are all grown back, decease
free and beautiful again. My gratitude goes to Emery's Health
Products for his Finger and Toe Nail Tonic - located in St.
Catharines, Ontario, Canada.
Thank you for your consideration.
Yes I learned some but what about when you have a client with toe
fungus does it contaminate nail polish. Just learning more about
Just read over your site. I have had toenail fungus for 10 years. I
have been on anti fungal medication under a doctor's supervision and
still have the fungus. It is only on one big toenail. I have also
tried all of the home rememdies possible. My toenail has never
looked awful like the pictures on your site. It looks very normal
but just isnt attached to the toenail bed. I continue to use home
rememdies to keep it in decent shape. It never grows back attached.
Can the toenail be injured due to the fungus and never grow back
attached?? Can it be something internal? I guess this is a lifelong
problem for me.
Always looking for new ideas....Debbie, Florida.
you for the site. I looked at the pics b/c this is the first time I
ever had the white line at the side. Please don't get rid of the
I used to get the yellowish kind. I could get them to grow out by
soaking only the infected toe in bleach and removing nailpolish and
getting sun on my feet. It would grow out. However, this white one
has been the hardest to get rid of. In fact, I can't get rid of it.
I tried tea tree oil - not sure that works at all.
1. I always get a fungus when I wear polish for more than a week or
2. Soaking only the infected toe in bleach helped me
3. DO NOT try to dig the crud out. It only spreads it. You do want
to make sure it is clean of dirt, but you will not get the fungus
out this way.
4. My father had the thick yellow kind on his thumbnail alll my
life. I'd see him digging at it, but that didn't work. (proooof?)
5. The best thing I ever used was an oral RX "Nystatin". Women tend
to have lots of undiagnosed fungi - not only on the toe - (as we all
know) so a homeopathic doc prescribed the Nystatin for four months.
It was not expensive, I had no problems from it that I noticed. My
toenails got beautiful again. Then, I put polish and boom, this new
6. Does anybody know about the white stuff?
7. always clean your manicure sets with alcohol.
8. I'm starting to think I should throw all my polish away to start
fresh after I've had an infection. To always use a clear base coat.
9. The bleach always could keep it at bay. I was glad to know that I
NEED to treat it. I'm going back on nystatin if my doc ok's.
Cyber-Hugs and best wishes to all,
Hi, I'm not sure exactly if my condition is fungal
But only on my BIG TOE thumbnails, there's like lint that
accumulates on the side edges of the nail
It can get really smelly.
I have always had this since a kid, but never really took it
I always had a problem with ingrown toenails, so maybe that kind of
triggers the lint things?
Please help me out!
Here are some pics of my Big toe nails. Over the years they have
gotten increasingly worse.
These pics are about a week after having them scraped at the doctors
to send away for testing.
They tell me the test takes up to 4 weeks to get results.
They look 100% on what they did prior to the scraping.
What do you think????
You can credit me as Abbie.
I put text on my picture. I think that's everything you need to
know. I've been using Curanail. The topical treatment you can buy
over the counter at a pharmacy. None of this harmful liver stuff! I
was told at doctors that I was way past topical treatment and had to
go for the pills. No way. I chose the topical regardless. And it
seems to be helping. My toenails (I have it on both big toes. My
right toe is pictured as it was the worst) are definitely better
than they use to be!
Please post my picture.
I wonder if you have heard about this...I thought it would be
nice to have perfect looking toenails so I had porcelain fake nails
put on. One day, my big toenail just peel completely off with the
porcelain attached. I was mortified and immediately soaked all the
rest off. To my dismay, the manicurist had drilled my nails down to
nothing. I now have a much worse problem. 4 of my toenails are
beyond ruined and I doubt they will ever grow back. Now what? I am
so sad, so heartbroken.
I want you to put these 'after photos of my toenails next to the
photos I have sent you
Ones in the seventh rank in the first photos page. .You
will see a big difference. Since august I am using vinegar, bleach
and peroxide as soak and drops.
And in September I started Lamisil pills once a day, liver enzyme
control every month.
Then in October I added fungoid tincture and tineacide.
I am using ped egg once a week to remove calluses of my feet. You
see difference. I am not depressed now. My hand nails are much
slower to be cured because I have to put nail polish everyday
-because I am a doctor, and working with my hands and patients would
not like a doctor with nails looking dirty-
But I am very hopeful and I will get rid of them soon. I got
much of this progress with vinegar, bleach and peroxide, the others
are only helping.
Hope this will help people. Thanks.
My toenail fungus is just getting worse! Here is a photo
to show you. Walshy
