One of the home remedies I have found effective in my battle with Toe Nail Fungus is tea tree oil. So, if you are suffering with a fungal infection try this natural, traditional remedy. A few drops of tea tree oil mixed with the same amount of olive oil, applied to your infected nails with a cotton ball gives you a quick treatment option.
Tea tree oil has known anti-fungal properties when used topically and in combination with olive oil (which is high in fatty acids and antioxidants) you have a salve which hydrates and nourishes your chipped and infected nails, while simultaneously fighting the fungus.
You should apply this mixture a few times a day for about 4 months. It takes a while for a fungal infection to take hold and become serious enough for you to notice it and realize that it needs attention, and a correspondingly long time to treat it.
Toenail fungus (Onychomycosis) is a fungal parasite which attacks the skin under the nail in the area where the skin and nail meet (the nail bed). Although nail fungus most commonly affects the toenails it is not unusual to have infected fingernails. It is important to keep your nails trimmed, clean and dry. If you are dealing with toenail fungus you must take precautions to avoid spreading it to others.
The unsightly, brittle nails need a fix! This solution of tea tree and olive oil allows for easy application and has an antifungal, moisturizing effect. Try it!
