Toenail Fungus Treatment using Apple Cider Vinegar | FAST CHEAP CURE
Toenail fungus can be an embarrassing and persistent problem. Many of the over-the-counter medications used to treat it are harsh and often ineffective, and prescription medications can have strong side effects. This is why many sufferers of toenail fungus seek a more natural and more effective treatment. One such treatment is apple cider vinegar. It is natural, has limited side effects and it is much less expensive than over-the-counter and prescription remedies.
Symptoms of Toenail Fungus
If you have toenail fungus your nail becomes thickened, brittle, crumbly or ragged,
The nail can become distorted in shape, dull-looking and there can be a darkening of the color of the toenail.
There can be separation of the nail from the nail bed if the infection becomes severe enough. In addition, there may be some pain associated with the infection. Finally, a foul odor may be present. An infected toenail can display some or all of these symptoms. An early infection can show up as a small white or yellow spot in the tip of the nail.
CAUSES OF TOENAIL FUNCTION
It’s caused by an abnormal PH of the skin, which can happen because of poor hygiene, a bad immune system, exposure to high levels of moisture, and/or poor circulation.
Why Apple Cider Vinegar Works
When a toenail fungus infection occurs, the pH of the surrounding skin and nail becomes more basic or alkaline in nature. The fungus thrives in an alkaline environment. If the pH of the area turns from basic to more acidic, the fungus cannot survive. This is where the apple cider vinegar becomes useful. The vinegar is acidic but still mild enough to not damage the surrounding skin and nail.
One of the more common ways to use apple cider vinegar as a toenail fungus treatment is to use it as a foot bath.
You will need to dilute the vinegar to one part vinegar and one part water. There should be enough fluid in the basin to cover the toes completely. Use warm water if you prefer. Soak your feet for 30 minutes at least once a day but no more than three times per day.
While the soak will smell strong, the odor will dissipate after the vinegar dries from your feet. You can also use essential oils to change the scent slightly.
Dry the feet completely after removing them from the water.
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar Without Soaking
Some people do not have the time to take two or three 30-minute foot baths a day. Another way to get the effects of the vinegar is to apply two drops of apple cider vinegar directly to the nail bed. Allow the vinegar to sit on the nail bed for several minutes before disturbing it or the desired effect might not be achieved. This should be done at least twice a day. This method can be used in conjunction with the foot bath.
Duration of Treatment
These treatments should be continued until all of the diseased nail has grown out and been removed. Once a healthy nail has replaced the diseased nail, it is unlikely that any infection remains. This could take a couple months or more because toenails grow slowly. The diseased nail should be clipped regularly and kept clean and dry. It is important that the toenails are dried thoroughly after these treatments because fungi love moist, warm, dark environments. Because every person’s toenails grow at a different rate, the final length of treatment will vary person to person.
People who have diabetes, or any other systemic disease that affects the blood flow to the feet should exercise caution when trying to treat diseases of the feet. These diseases can cause the person to heal more slowly and become more susceptible to infection if a wound occurs on the foot. Treatment should take place under the supervision of a qualified health care professional.
Vinegar is an inexpensive and easy-to-find remedy for a variety of foot ailments. Not to mention, soaking your feet after a long day can be quite relaxing.
