The nail fungus is characterized by thick, discolored or yellowed nails, which may also become brittle and completely splintered. The nail fungus is not only unattractive, but can become painful at times, causing embarrassment and discomfort to those who suffer. Trying to get rid of nail fungus can be very expensive, either through consultations and drug prescriptions. An inexpensive way to cure nail fungus is with sea salt.
– a small bowl
– a towel
– sea salt
– hydrogen peroxide
– hot water
1. Cut out your toenails and file as many infected nail fungus as possible. This will help the treatment with sea salt to reach more efficiently the affected area.
2. Put hot water in a basin for the foot, with enough water to cover your fingers. Make sure the water is as hot as your feet are capable of withstanding.
3. Roll a towel and place under the basin at the opposite end of the toes. This will tilt most of the water to the tip of your fingers into the bowl.
4. Add 1 cup hydrogen peroxide in water and then dip your toes in the water.
5. Get your wet fingers on the ground and pour sea salt on your toes. Let stand for about three minutes before putting your fingers in water to soak. While your toes are perched outside the basin with sea salt on them, add 1 1/2 cups of sea salt and peroxide in the basin.
6. Put your toes in the water and let soak for 30 minutes.
7. Remove the fingers of the solution and pat dry them. Gently massage your feet and toes to help blood circulation on that area.
8. Apply one or two drops of vinegar to the infected nail. Do not wear shoes or socks. If you must go out, wear sandals or flip-flops.
9. Repeat the 30-minute soak in sea salt daily or as often as you can until the nail fungus is gone. You may need to continue soaking at least once a week to prevent fungus to become reinfected again.
