Toe Fungus Treatment

Toe fungus -- I only have this in my big toes. I noticed last winter when I was in Florida and in the pool every day my toes cleared up. Is there an herb I could use?

If the fungus is limited to just the toe nail then tea tree oil can be applied once daily until the nail grows out. If, the fungus is also in the nail bed then a much more aggressive approached is needed. Calendula, cedar, thyme, oregano and myrrh tinctures can be applied daily along with good bacteria (yogurt) between tincture applications. Soaking your feet in a super saturated salt water solution can also be done daily until the nail has completely grown out. Disinfecting foot wear and all socks is a must. It can take up to many months for a nail to completely grow out and the fungus to be cleared up in the nail bed. Persistence and consistency is the key.
