Hello again! Wow, I can’t believe it’s been four years. I apologize to everyone who has wondered what has come of my experiment. After my last update, I figured I was basically healed and stopped following my regimen. The right big toenail never did grow out 100% clean, but I was happy.
From 2017 to 2018 everything was completely fine. Around 2019, I started seeing the evil fungus begin its attack. Now, only three nails are still OK. I didn’t want to acknowledge that I had gotten lazy and allowed my toenails to deteriorate, so I turned a blind eye like an ostrich with its head in a hole.
I am ready to start taking care of my toenails again, but there are going to have to be a few changes if I am going to keep this up literally for the rest of my life.
First of all, there is no way that I can apply tea tree oil twice a day forever. It is way too strong, for one thing, and for another, it is just a LOT of work! I plan to simplify my regimen a bit so that I can actually keep it up.
In the morning, when showering, I will scrub with the tea tree soap and blow dry my feet. I will NOT apply tea tree oil or coconut oil.
In the afternoon I will wash my feet with tea tree soap and apply the tea tree / coconut oil mixture. Melting the solid coconut oil was a bit of a chore, so I am going to switch to fractionated coconut oil in a pump bottle.
Then, at bedtime, I will apply the 40% urea cream.
Worrying about sterilizing socks and shoes in hot water and UV light is too much. I just don’t have that kind of energy to keep up for sustained periods of time.
The basic principles of my nail fungus regimen are still there, but I think this will be a lot easier to maintain.
Before I go, here’s a close up of each foot. How about I check back in four weeks and we’ll see how I’m doing? See you then!
