Q. I have had toenail fungus for many years and have tried all the remedies you’ve written about without success until now. For over 21 days, at the same time of day, I soaked my toes and feet in a 1:1 ratio of white vinegar and generic Listerine.
I now have NO toenail fungus and maintain this status by using tea tree oil on my nails. I hope this formula might help others.
A. Getting rid of nail fungus often requires patience. It can take months for a toenail to grow out fungus free. What works for one person may be totally ineffective for another.
