Home Remedies for Nail Fungus

You have to be careful with home remedies for any health problem, and fungal nails are no exception.

Toenail fungus is notoriously difficult to treat, and usually you need to see a podiatrist to have your nails treated effectively. There are over-the-counter fungal creams that work well in some cases, but if the nail fungus has progressed to the point where the nails are yellowed, thickened, or painful, creams are typically not enough. Home remedies are an entirely different matter.

There are many home remedies that you may find through searches on the internet, or you may have heard of them from friends or families, but it is very important to remember that home remedies are not clinically proven to work and can be harmful.

You may hear rumors about these remedies, but we just want to remind you that the following home remedies have NOT been clinically proven to have success in treating nail fungus:

  • Vinegar
  • Epsom Salts
  • Vick’s vapor rub
  • Bleach

Using home remedies and treatments without a doctor’s supervision can be dangerous. We recommend making an appointment with your podiatrist if you suspect nail fungus. If you try ineffective or even potentially harmful home remedies and you put off a visit to the doctor’s office, you may just give the fungus time to spread and end up with a more serious infection.

To contact our office for an appointment, call (888) 713-0906 or request an appointment online.
