Well I have moved past urine now on to using Apple Cider vinegar, white vinegar and tea tree oil as well as oregano oil and I read coconut oil works also. I am trying those before I touch bleach.
I was reading the side effects of the RX drug to cure this and it is not 100% as the fungus can come back one side effect is loss of sense of taste, one is loss of sight another is loss of hearing and loss of liver use. I think I will be ok losing my toenails.

I've read soaking in Listerine (amber colored original stuff) will help but it takes a while to work.

I used Vicks VapoRub. Not fancy forms of Vicks, just the old-fashioned VapoRub. It worked. It does take some months. Mine took about three months but I've read it can take up to six months and I knew a doctor who said his took over a year but finally worked. It also does require absolute strictness in application I applied it quite thickly every night after shower and sometimes during the day if I felt it had rubbed off on socks I was removing. But, always nightly, and covered with soft, loose-fitting socks when going to bed - the kind they make especially for diabetics. Cotton is best. And if I was just sitting around doing nothing that might rub off the Vicks, I put on no foot-covering at all. Let the nails breathe.



Just what I did. That was years ago and it has never returned. Good luck

Most drugs have possible side effects, but that doesn't mean you will actually get those side effects. I had no side effects whatsoever with the toenail Rx, and most other people don't either.

And my toenail is beautiful again. Well, as beautiful as a toenail can get.
