Reah's StoryI have used this personally and know it works, I am a nurse and was very skeptical when told about this however I did not want to use the prescription medications that are available due to the possible side effects.
vicks vapor rub
1Rub Vicks Vapor Rub onto the effected toenail and surrounding tissue every night before bed until the infected nail grows out and the brown area has been cut off. I was amazed but I have been doing this and the nail that is growing in is fungus free and mine is almost completely grown out after 4 months.

Reah, I know some one that really needs this treatment and will print it off and give it to him. Thanks for posting it.

My hubby had this same problem for a few years. The doctor kept giving him prescriptions, but none ever worked, and some had side effects. I had heard somewhere about using distilled vinegar for the fungus. He used that on his nails every night for about 3 months. Been fungus free for over 3 years. If that had not worked for him, then the Vicks was next on the list. LOL. So happy yours is working for you. So much safer. ( and cheaper)

Hi! I know this is an older posting but I wanted to add another treatment that is working. I was told to swab the infected nail and surrounding tissue with Tea Tree Oil. I is working but not as quick as you indicate for the vicks. I will give that a try also.
