I would try that, or soaking in any thing, but I don't have a good place to soak. I have an old fashioned clawfoot tub, hard to sit on the edge of that.

If you are referring to my mention of the clorox soak, when I did it I made the solution in a little bowl and took it into the living room while I watched some tv.

I have not got a shadow of doubt it probably worked. I was just saying that painting my toenails with white vinegar twice a day worked for me. I'm sure there are probably many products will work and much faster.

Bleach kills fungus and I had some in my apt closet many yrs ago and this was after I moved into this apt close to the ocean, and was shocked to find the mold/fungus...clorox killed it and it never returned.

Soak in warm water for about 30 minutes with a good amount of epsom salt and about 10 drops of pure tea tree oil mixed in. Then before you go to bed put a couple of drops of organic oregano essential oil on the problems areas. Do this each night for about two weeks. It will clear it up.

I used to do apartment maintenance. I had lots of fungus on windowsills. Bleach was a sure fire cure. Some of came back and some of didn't but that was always (no exceptions) the first thing to use. I had 90 apartments and there was two of them that where it constantly came back after while then it had to be done again.

Fungus hates urine. Pee on your feet in the shower. Good for athletes foot, too. Don't wipe it off, let it airdry.

I was just given a 3 months rx today for some Western FDA approved Drug. I am not taking it unless the urine or bleach fail me. The FDA scares me

"Is there any truth to rumors that you can cure athlete’s foot with urine?
Some people say urine might cure athlete’s foot because of the urea that it contains. It would have to be a very large amount of urea (more than how much is normally found in urine) for it to be considered useful to treat tinea pedis (“athlete’s foot”). So in reality, no, it probably does not work."

Honestly, I'd rather have fungus than soak my feet in urine.

I took a prescription drug for it, and it worked great. No problems from it at all. Fungus free, and happy not to have to pee on my feet.
