~Try Natural Fixes First!~
Try all natural approaches first to save money.
My big toenail has suffered trauma twice in the past 5 years. Don't ask...it's really not an exciting story either time, just very painful! Anyway, the past couple of years I've had to keep polish on the nail year round due to how bad it looked. It was discolored, flaky, and looked like it was heading toward fungus. Gross! I didn't want to be a part of the "Fungus Among Us" group!
(Don't worry...there are no before and after pics simply because feet really gross me out and there is just no need for anyone to see my big toe nail. Trust me, it wasn't well.)
I was at the point the other day where I was willing to spend hundreds at the doctor to get something for it. Then my neighbor suggested Tea Tree Oil. Of course, you all know how much I love putting oils on my body. So, I ordered some off eBay!
Everything that I read online said this process was slow and could take up to 12 months! Geez! That is a long time to doctor something twice daily. I decided that I would give it 2 weeks and see if there was any improvement. Well, I'm not even a week into it and my nail is looking 90% better. I'll be shocked if it isn't completely back to a normal, healthy looking nail by the end of the 2 week period!
So, once again the natural remedy works wonders and saved me money! Tea Tree Oil can be used for a great deal of things and is relatively inexpensive. I'm excited to have it now and plan to use it on many things in the future!
