Toe nail fungus -sorry!

anyone found a cure?

been using Curanail for ages- got rid of the blighter right down to the last couple of millimetres, then back it came. One big toe only. Almost whole length of mail.

I DO paint my toe nails as without nail varnish it looks awful- though will leave off varnish in winter!

Anyone used a different product and had good results?

Tea tree oil (neat). It's anti-fungal

Helped with my little toe nails but I forget to use it regularly

(don't suggest going to drs for tablets- you have to take them for months and I am not keen smile

am also using curanail, but only do it once every three weeks because have to paint my toes otherwise looks awful. its a real pita tbh to keep applying the stuff. It also says on the packet it can take up to a year to get rid off!!!!!

Teatree oil -the proper stuff, applied with a soft tooth brush and a 10 minute soak in Orange Listerine (other colours cause noticable discolouration) 3-4 times a day, bare feet as much as possible.
