Having toenail fungus can be painful and unattractive. Luckily, our podiatrist near Holbrook can help with that. Dr. Jeffrey Muroff can help with your toenail fungus and show you some ways to get rid of the fungus at home, as well as other treatments that we offer at our practice.
If you are looking for natural remedies to cure or treat your toenail fungus, you can try applying some of the following to your toe, all of which should be affordable and easy to find. However, be sure to consult with our podiatrist before trying any of the following:
Vicks VapoRub - use a cotton swab to apply to the affected toenail(s)
Listerine and white vinegar - combining these two ingredients, soak your feet for 45-60 minutes daily
Cornmeal - mixed into hot water, let it dissolve into a paste, and soak your feet in it for an hour once a week
Pau d’Arco tea - soak your feet twice a day for 20 minutes, using two tea bags
Tea tree or oregano oil - apply a few drops onto the affected nail twice a day
Urea paste - helps to dissolve the affected part of the nail, while keeping the healthy part intact
If these natural remedies do not seem to work for you, Dr. Muroff offers other treatment options as well, like laser treatment. Laser treatment is not only effective in removing toenail fungus, but is also fast, painless and prevents the fungus from returning. If you are looking for a podiatrist near Holbrook who offers laser treatment, Dr. Muroff is the one for you. If you have any questions about the procedure, he is more than happy to answer, and you can decide for yourself whether it’s the right treatment for you.
