The fungi infections can appear anywhere on the body. A fungi nail can occur when fungi appear in the body or attack it, most often on toenails, fingernails or skin UNDER nails. As to AAD – American Academy of Dermatology, the fungi infections attack the toenails most of all since the toes are always trapped in shoes and inside is a warm, closed environment perfect for bacteria.
The fungi exist inside and outside the body with accompanying bacteria. Whena fungi starts to grow more and more, you get infections.
In a healthy person, fungi nail infection will not make complications. But, otherwise it will hurt, itch, look bad and disrupt normal nail bed development and health.
For example, baking soda doesn’t remove the fungi. But still it it a fungistatic and this is a repellent or blocker for future fungi or fungi growing.
Vinegar is an acid and it disrupts the fungi survival rate. Don’t worry, skin and nails won’t be damaged from the vinegar around the fungi.
- 4-5 tbsp baking soda
- 1 cup white vinegar or apple vinegar
- Paper towels
Mix 1 cup vinegar and water for feet soak mix. Soak the feet for 15 minutes and dry them with the towels. In the water add a few tbsp. baking soda to soak again 15 minutes. Again dry nicely.
Do this daily, 2 times. The vinegar will destroy fungi and the soda will prevent new fungi.
Another tip: before this treatmen, trim the nails as much as you can though, use clean clippers of course.
After clipping, clean the clipper with alcohol. Rinse the feet with water and dry them WELL.
