Over a year ago now, I was going to a nail shop to have the acrylic nails maintained and got nail fungus because of poor hygiene practices of the shop. The doctor said there is a medication for it but that it costs $1000.00 dollars and only a 50 percent chance it will cure it. I heard that vicks vapor rub and tea tree oil work, but so far, no luck. Any home remedies you can give would be much appreciated.

More may be involved than fungus… or not. The big toes relate to the liver channel in Chinese medicine as do the nails. Fungus may be treated either with anti-fungals from the MD or with anti-fungal essential oils as in Vick’s Vapor Rub and similar preparations. [Such treatments are sometimes MD acknowledged. The newspaper column of Gott in the USA is one source that has brought this possible treatment to public awareness.] With yellow nails ONLY on the big toes, your MD might want to have liver enzyme tests done as well as other liver function tests, especially if the immune systems is strong and there are no other signs of susceptibility to opportunistic infections. What other successful ways of treating this condition are you aware of?
Neuromas – Podiatrist in Passaic, NJ Neuromas are enlarged, benign growth of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. Neuromas are caused by tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves. Pressure from poorly fitting shoes or an abnormal bone structure can also lead to this condition. Symptoms may include sensations of thickness, burning, numbness, tingling, or pain in the ball of the foot.Treatments generally include wearing corrective shoes or orthotics and/or cortisone injections. In severe cases, surgical removal of the growth may be necessary. Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of tissues around the nerve that leads to the toes. Morton’s neuroma usually develops between the third and fourth toes in response to irritation, such as that caused by wearing high-heeled or narrow shoes, or from trauma. Symptoms may include a burning pain that radiates from the ball of the foot to the toes or numbness in the toes. Conservative treatments usually resolve the pain or progressions of the condition, and range from wearing roomier, lower-heeled footwear or using orthotics to reduce the pressure on the nerve, to injections of cortosteroid medication to reduce swelling and inflammation.
