Fungal infections are quite common and they most often affect our feet, which can be quite embarrassing for the person affected. If not treated in time the fungus overgrowth turns into an infection which can have some unpleasant consequences. Most people complain of toenail fungal infections, which typically affect the area around and under the toenail.
If you don’t have any medical problems a nail fungal infection isn’t so dangerous on its own but it looks awful, it can be painful and cause permanent damage to your nail. That’s why it’s best to catch it early and treat it effectively if you want to avoid complications.
Get rid of nail fungus forever
The following remedy is very simple but quite effective. You’ll need:
- 4-5 tablespoons of baking soda
- 1 cup of white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- Paper towels
The baking soda will not eliminate the fungi but it will stop it from spreading into a nasty infection. The vinegar, on the other hand, is acidic and it will create an unfavorable environment for the fungi, eliminating it from the root. Plus it’s natural so it won’t cause any damage to the nail and the skin around it.
Step 1: Mix the vinegar in enough water so that you can soak your feet in it. Soak the feet for about 15 minutes and then pat them dry with the paper towels.
Step 2: Mix the baking soda in enough water so that you can soak your feet in it. Soak for 15 minutes and pat your feet dry with the paper towels.
The vinegar will kill off the fungi while the baking soda will stop its recurrence. Repeat the process 2 times a day and get rid of the fungal infection for good.
Additional advice: It would be best if you can trim back as much of the affected nail as you can before starting the treatment, using a disinfected nail clipper. Make sure you disinfect it again afterwards to prevent it from spreading.
