9. Onion


Onion has antifungal qualities that can effectively kill the fungus responsible for this kind of infection.

  • Cut an onion into thick slices and gently rub them on the affected toenail for five minutes. Leave the onion extract on the toenail for at least 20 minutes. Then wash the area with lukewarm water and dry it thoroughly. Follow this simple treatment twice daily to see quick improvement.
  • Alternatively, crush some onion pieces to extract its juice. Apply the juice on the infected toenail with a cotton ball and secure it with a bandage or tape. Leave it on for one hour and then wash it off with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use this simple treatment twice daily for two months to ensure that the infection does not recur.

10. Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has medium-chain fatty acids that work as natural fungicides to effectively kill the fungus causing the toenail infection.

  • Take a little bit of extra-virgin coconut oil and rub it gently on the affected toenail. Let it absorb and dry naturally. Repeat two or three times daily until the infection clears up.
  • Mix five parts of coconut oil and one part of oregano oil. Massage some of the solution into the infected nail. Leave it on for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water and pat dry thoroughly. Do this twice a day for at least four weeks.

Remember that you must use these remedies consistently for the treatment to work. Also, keep your nails short by trimming and filing them every week.

  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!
