If you have ever had a toe nail fungus you know that underneath your toe nails will be dark discoration. I only had this problem once and found out from my mom and another friend that the best thing to cure this is Vicks Vaporub! I am here to tell you it really works! It takes a long time, but will eventually clear up the fungus. Do you know a better,easier, less expensive way then that? Do you have any home remedies that really work? It can be for anything, as long as you know it really works.

My mom had the problem and I did too, my uncle told us about using Vicks, we did and it really works, and no side effects and its cheap.

Yeah, I had never heard of it either. No side effects is nice and the price is right.

I have used Tea tree oil in the past and that did work, but it is not a home remedy, but interesing to know about Vicks!

I've never heard of that. I'm glad it worked for you.

I haven't got toe nail fungus and I don't know of anybody who has, but if anybody out there has a remedy for heartburn, I would love to hear it. No use telling me to avoid fatty foods because these are my favourites.

Haven't tried it, but I've heard Vicks will turn your nail black. So, I wonder if that happened to you? I've also heard that soaking your nail in vinegar and water (not sure how much or how long), but that if you do this twice a day it's supposed to eventually kill the infection. I always wonder about these things since the meds are incredibly expensive and most insurance companies refuse to pay for them. I think it's something like $600 for treating this, but they consider it cosmetic! Such a joke if you ask me. If not treated, it never goes away! Very gross, very embarrasing, especially for a woman in the summer when everyone's wearing sandals! Sigh.
