Products used: 1 part tea tree oil to 20 parts coconut oil AM, Kerasal Nail PM
It’s now been one month, and the toenail fungus continues its retreat. The key, it seems, to improvement is unrelenting persistence. I used tea tree oil half-halfheartedly a few years ago and didn’t see any improvement. If this sounds familiar, give it another try.
Next week I will be posting a step by step guide that shows exactly what I do each day. I have made minor tweaks since the beginning (like adding the coconut oil) that requires a clear and concise summary. I hope that it will help you see the same results I have already achieved.
This week I am starting to see a little bit of normal looking pink nail emerge on my right big toe. All of the active fungus has turned completely white, it used to be kind of grayish. I do believe that it’s dying.
An interesting effect that rubbing all this stuff on my toes has been its effect on my feet in general. I used to have gross cracks on the bottoms of my feet and in between my toes, and they would sometimes bleed. I suppose that is athlete’s foot. All gone, completely soft and healed. My feet don’t stink anymore either.
Like I mentioned last week, I have added a step by step guide that shows you exactly how I am treating my nail fungus. That way, if this ends up being 100% successful (which I hope), you will be able to copy it to the letter. Of course, if it doesn’t work, I will remove it and we will just go a different route.
I am now taking my shoes off and immediately washing my feet as soon as I get home from work, and this is really helping a lot (that’s why my feet are red in this picture, I had just finished washing them in hot water). The toenail fungus is on it’s way out! Take a look at these two pictures (six weeks apart):
Yeah, they are awfully short, but I’ll take short nails over hideously thick, yellow monster nails.
Daylight! It’s been a while since my feet have seen it. Boy, what a difference only 2 months makes. Every toenail now has clean growth at the base, and there is less gross yellow fungus every day. I am still using Kerasal Nail and I am not really sure when to stop. I do NOT want the nail fungus to come back, so I intend on continuing to use the tea tree oil indefinitely maybe a couple times a week.
A reader asked if I am concerned about ingrown toenails since they are so short. I used to get them, and I can tell you that as long as you are cutting all the way to the edge of the nail and not leaving any sharp edges, you will be okay.
