There are many different nail fungus home remedies that are offered both on and offline. Some of the home and commercial remedies are effective while others aren’t as effective. Look at the ingredients of any remedy before using it because some may actually be detrimental to your health.

Distal subungual onychomycosis is one of the 4 different fungi that cause fungal infections and it is the most common cause of nail infections. Toenails are more prone to fungal infections than finger nails because they grow slower. For this same reason, toenails take longer to heal once infected. Nail fungal infections are a worldwide problem that affects anywhere from 2% to 18% at any given point in time with the majority of the infected being adults. Children rarely get nail fungus infections.

A nail fungus infection can be a sign of your overall health. An immune system that isn’t healthy enough to fight off fungal infections might be not be able to fend off other ailments or diseases. If you’ve read the articles on minerals that are located elsewhere here at, you might have noticed mineral deficiencies can cause nail problems. Two nail fungus home remedies that work for many are Vicks VapoRub and apple cider vinegar but these must be used consistently and you must give the nail time to grow out. The discoloration you see is caused by the fungus and it can only be removed by cutting off the nail as it grows out.

Before deciding on the option that is best for you and your nail fungus, it is wise to talk to your medical professional and read as much as you can so you are an informed consumer that chooses the healthiest option.

Two books you might consider reading are Home Remedies for Toenail Fungus and Stop Nail Fungus. Of these two sources, I recommend Stop Nail Fungus because it discusses both prescription drugs and rates different home remedies for effectiveness.

Knowledge is power but it is useless unless you take action and use it to get rid of your nail fungus.
