Okay, first, just never go to any nail place where you don’t actually see them using disinfectant for their tools. I got a pedicure last week and thought it would be okay even though I didn’t see them put their tools in any solution or spray them with alcohol or anything. But I ended up with a nail fungus! Never going back there.
Anyway, do you know the best treatment for fungal nail infection? I need this to go away ASAP!

To treat a nail fungus at home, you need (big surprise) something that has anti-fungal properties. You’ll probably need multiple treatments to get rid of the fungus completely, but here are two home remedies that work.
First is a combo of Epsom salt and apple cider vinegar. Combine these two ingredients with water and soak your feet a few times a day. You can also drink a glass of honey and water mixed with apple cider vinegar for an internal attack on the fungus. However, don’t replace the foot bath with the drink. The drink alone will not be very useful.
The second method is to mix tea tree oil with water for a tea tree foot bath. After the bath, rub some oil into the affected area to keep the fungus from spreading, which is a real danger with any fungus.

If your fungus doesn’t clear up in a few days, you should see a doctor. Otherwise, you risk an even worse infection. It may be embarrassing, but rest assured, the doctor will have seen worse.
