Onychomyosis: Toe Nail Fungus

The photo demonstrates the use of a small piece of gauze laid down on the toenail with fungus. The gauze is big enough just to cover the nail. The gauze is soaked in white vinegar, squeezed to remove excess, and then laid on top of the nail. Paper or scotch tape is used to hold the tape in place for several hours in the evening, 3 to 5 times per week. This is done for the 6 to 9 months it takes to allow a new nail to grow out. Hopefully, you are happy with the fungus free new nail. Vinegar is 5% acid and fungus can not live in it. Once per week it is good to pumice the top of the toenail (s) to thin out as much as possible over a 6 month period.
