Frugal Home Remedies: Vicks Vapor Rub As Anti-Fungal

This is one that I just recently read:  a study was done testing different home remedies used to get rid of toe nail fungus.  They found that applying Vicks Vapor Rub to your toe nails several times a day was an effective treatment for fungus and that it worked better than some medicines sold as fungicides.




They recommended wiping the nails with vinegar, drying them, and then applying the Vicks.  I would suggest wearing some socks as the Vicks is very greasy.

It's nice to know that these affordable treatments are available to us and that they are actually very effective.

God bless,

  2. Another thing vicks is good at : ) I've heard so many folks swear by using it for different things.

    The smell always takes me back to childhood.

  3. Yes, it really works and is safe to use! ZetaClear even mentioned Vicks as one of the effective home remedy to cure fungi infection, however it can take a very long time to get rid of it completely.

  4. Vicks is clearing up my under arm fungus. Under a MD's orders, I tried 3 over the counter fungus creams/sprays and two prescription fungus creams totaling 12 weeks. No luck with these products. One prescription cream was actually very harmful and caused dry, painful hard ridges on my under arms.

    What is working??
    VICKS! My fungus is nearly gone. I applied Vicks first thing in the morning on clean,dry skin followed by about 3 or 4 other applications a day, and once at night before bed. Fungus is going,gong, almost totally gone!! A few more days and presto-chango....no more fungus~~ Yay, Vicks!!
