-Soak the affected toenails for 15 minutes daily in a basin with a mixture of half warm water and half natural apple cider vinegar. You can also put pure, undiluted vinegar on the nail with a medicine dropper two or three times daily.

-Put a few drops of tea tree oil on your toenails and cuticles every day. Rub it in completely.

-Make light grooves in the affected toenails with a nail file and rub vapor rub into the top of the toenail. Do this several times a day for several days. The grooves will help the vapor rub penetrate the nail.

-Try soaking your toes in antiseptic mouth wash daily after a each shower.

-Create a mixture of one part soy sauce and one part pine cleaner and put a small amount in a dropper. Put a few drops on the affected nails after every shower.

-Put a few fresh garlic cloves in the toes of a pair of socks and sleep in them at night or crush some fresh garlic and put it directly on the affected nails.

Some tips:

- Keep your feet as clean and as dry as possible and keep your toenails trimmed.

- Go shoeless as much as possible, especially if your feet tend to sweat. Even taking your shoes off for a few minutes during the day will give your toenails a chance to dry.

-Wear cotton socks that will help your feet to stay drier.

-Remember that it can take many months for the infected part of the toenail to grow out and a new nail to take its place. No matter what treatment you try, you must be consistent with treatment until that happens.
