Onychomycosis, which is the medical term for your common toenail fungal infection, is a problem which many people face today. Half of all nail fungal infections are of this fungus. Sometimes it is a problem that doesn’t generate any bothersome signs or symptoms, so it is left untreated. If you have yellowing of the toenail, a nail that is thicker than normal, cracking, peeling, swelling, or redness around your nail bed, then there is a good chance that you have toenail fungus.

Candida and dermatophytes can also cause similar symptoms when they create an infection as well.

That’s the bad news. Now here’s the good news. There are several simple home remedies for toenail fungus that can help you get rid of that bothersome problem in as little as 2-3 weeks. Most fungal infections of a toenail are completely curable and will only take a few minutes out of your day.

Which one of these home remedies for toenail fungus could work for you? Let’s take a look.

#1. Vinegar Paste
Vinegar has a mildly acidic pH, which allows it to get underneath your nail and attack the fungus that is causing the issues you see. You could waste 30 minutes of your time on a toenail soak in a solution that is equal parts water to vinegar, but there’s a better way. Create a vinegar paste instead.

Here’s what you do. Mix any type of flour with your preferred type of vinegar. It’s like making paste with flour and water from your elementary school days, but with a thicker consistency. You want the mixture to be smooth and thick, not thin and runny.

Apply the vinegar paste to all of your affected nails. If you think you might have athlete’s foot, then apply the paste to those spots as well. Then wrap your foot with clear cellophane so the paste won’t drip anywhere. You can leave the paste on all day if you wish, for 30 minutes, or whatever time suits you best. It’s up to you.

Once your feet are wrapped, you can then go about the business of your day.

#2. Tea Tree Oil
There are several products containing tea tree oil which will also help to work out the toenail fungus infection for you in a relatively short amount of time. Lotions, balms, and creams tend to work the best. If you find it as an essential oil, that will also work.

Apply the lotion, balm, or cream as directed.

If you have the essential oil, then you can apply it to a cotton ball and then hold against the affected nails for up to 10 minutes. You can tape the cotton to the nail so it stays covered as you go about your day.

You can also mix the oil into coconut or olive oil with baking soda and then scrub your toenails with a new toothbrush.

Repeating this method 2-3 times per day will usually provide the best results. For severe yellowing or cracking that isn’t painful, 4-5 times per day may be necessary for the first 7-14 days of the treatment.

#3. Baking Soda with Hydrogen Peroxide
It’s a combination that helps to make your teeth whiter and your toenails pinker. Mix a small amount of baking soda [1 tablespoon] with hydrogen peroxide [2 tablespoons] to make a baste. Apply it directly to the affected nail, focusing on the edges and the nail bed if exposed.

You may see the paste begin to bubble after applying it. This is normal when there are bacteria and fungi being killed by this application.

This paste can be covered if you wish, but unlike the vinegar paste, it will only be effective for up to 30 minutes at a time. You can apply this paste throughout the day if you wish, but do so at least 3-4 times until you begin to see results. Then you can lower it to 1-2 times per day or switch to a different simple home remedy for toenail fungus to continue the healing process.

#4. Vick’s Vaporub
This home remedy is only effective if you catch the toenail fungal infection in its early stages. If your nails have just started to turn yellow, grow thicker, or curl, then apply this ointment liberally to the affected nail 2-3 times per day.

For best results, you will want to make sure your feet are completely dry before applying it. The petroleum jelly in the Vaporub can actually trap moisture next to your skin so that the fungus can continue to grow.

#5. Oregano Oil
Oil of Oregano has many of the same properties that Tea Tree Oil contains. You can make the same pastes with this product or just apply it directly if you wish. For Oil of Oregano to be effective, you’ll need to give it at least 30 minutes to work. You’ll also need to apply it at least twice per day for a minimum of 21 days before being able to see results.

#6. Cheap Scotch
Forget using Listerine mouthwash or other oral cleansing products that will make your feet smell like bubble gum or cotton candy. Go for the real alcohol if you need to kill a tough case of toenail fungus at home. Anything that is at least 80 proof will work, but you do want to use alcoholic products that contain minimal sugar. For this reason, cheap scotch is the preferre
