Fungus - Treating Feet for Long Haul

One of my questions was why my toe nails seemed to be peeling and crumbling.

"You have a fungus!" My doctor informed me.

My mother had fungus too. About my age. But, instead of her nails falling off, hers got really thick and spongy looking.

My doctor said that if I treated my nails with a daily dose of Vicks, plus a between toes slathering of some high powered athletes foot creme, I would have my fungus problem solved in about twelve months.

Twelve months.

That's probably how long it takes to grow out the nail, because, the fungus is a jerk and you need the Vicks to smother the fungus on your toe nails while you treat the inner toe fungus. Apparently, once the nails grow out completely the fungus will be hard pressed to come back, but won't be able to. Conditions unfavorable.

I'm going to use a combination of treatments. I have a small container that I will use just for this experiment.

It will contain hydrogen peroxide. I will dip my feet in this, daily.

The peroxide is cool and as I dip my feet in the box, it feels cool and refreshing.

My fungus is called athletes foot. It's a white, peeling mess. It has an odor as well.

I'm using terbifine between my toes, following the foot soak. Then, I'm spreading Vicks vapor rub across my toe nails. According to my doctor, fungus doesn't go away on nails unless it is deliberately smothered off the toe nail.

The Vicks keeps it at bay until the nail grows out. This can take a year. Depending on nail growth.
