Products used: tea tree oil & coconut oil AM, urea cream PM
I am happy to report that after switching back to tea tree oil, my nails are looking fantastic again. I am so glad I switched back. Tea tree oil all the way!
The right big toenail which has been so problematic is really showing progress again! Woo hoo!
In my last post, I was wondering if somehow by treating nail fungus, you are growing ever more resistant strains of fungus that become harder and harder to kill. I was happy to read a study about tea tree oil (the same one linked from the main page on this site). Experiments have been done to see if fungus becomes resistant to tea tree oil; here is an excerpt from that study:
“With regard to fungi, an attempt to induce resistance to TTO in two clinical isolates of Candida albicans was largely unsuccessful, with isolates failing to grow in 2% (vol/vol) TTO after serial passage in increasing concentrations of TTO.”
This gives me hope the fungus isn’t going to grow resistant to it and start taking over again. 🙂 I can’t wait to share my next update!
