Home Remedy for Fungus and Warts

Seven years ago, I got a pedicure.  And a foot fungus.  I will never forget the day because it was the day my daughter was born.  Shortly thereafter, I noticed 7 of my toenails turning ugly colors.  All fell off...except one.  And that one has been the bane of my existence ever since.  I have tried everything...and nothing seemed to work.

Several months ago, I noticed a huge wart on the bottom of my daughter's foot.  It got to the point where it was so big, it hurt when she walked.  I didn't know how to treat it, so we just ignored it.  But I knew I had to figure something out.

In my attempt to find a solution to my toenail problem, I read a lot of articles, forums, and advice about using apple cider vinegar, putting different creams and ointments on, and other techniques which, oddly enough, are also recommended for getting rid of warts.

I did find that Vick's Vapo Rub worked really well for keeping it under control (as well as helping with my incredibly dry and cracked feet), but it didn't solve my problem.

Then, one day, I read about using a Clorox Bleach Pen on the fungus.  The reasoning: bleach kills fungus.  Duh.  Okay, I can try that.  I did a few bleach soaks first but they made my foot itch and burn.  The bleach pen would solve that problem, so I ran out and got one.  I got one that has a fine tip at one end and a brush on the other.  

I used the brush and painted bleach all over my toenail.  I did this for a couple days and pretty soon noticed that my toe was looking better than it had in years.  I'll admit, though, that it isn't better, because I'll also admit that I am TERRIBLE when it comes to doing medications and treatments consistently.  I am definitely good at symptomatic treatments, but not consistent ones. Still, the improvement was permanent and I have not had the problems with my toe that I had before.  I know that if I am consistent, it will get all the way better.  

However, I also now had a new weapon in my arsenal.  So when I was wondering how to treat my daughter's wart several months later, I thought of the bleach pen.  I whipped it out one morning, and scrubbed some on her foot.  I am not kidding when I say that she had this wart for a good 4-5 months.  And the next day, it was almost completely GONE!  I put more on tonight and I expect that with a couple more applications, it will be gone for good.  I am amazed.  Not surprised, but amazed.

So if you have a stubborn wart or fungus that you are having a hard time beating, give this a try.  It just might work for you too.
