  1. I use a hairdryer after toweling dry after I take a shower. Fungus grows under moist conditions and towel drying doesnt’ complete dry feet.

  2. I like to know if any of these cures would work on a fungus located under the surface of big toenail.
    The prescription medications do not penetrate a thick nail’s surface and are ineffective.

  3. I started taking turmeric capsules daily several years ago, Just as an antioxidant. I had given up on curing my toenail fungus but was surprised to see it improving within a few weeks/months. Had not changed anything else in my diet or medicines. Now my big toenail is normal-looking and the others a little quirky, but so much better. Will not quit taking it now!
