5.Choose The Correct Treatment
CUT NAILS: Before going forward, you must prepare your nails. First, cut all infected nails as low as possible without causing pain.
FILE NAILS: Use a nail file to work away the area on the top, sides, and front of your nails.
CAUTION:Wash your hands and tools between preparing each nail to avoid cross-contamination.
In a bath tub or sink, allow a gentle stream of warm water to flow across your infected feet (or hands).
In a bath tub or sink, run cold water across the infected area. Gradually increase the water temperature until it is warm or hot, but not hot enough to scald.
This step prepares your skin for washing. Warm water softens and loosens the skin and nails so they can be thoroughly cleaned.
Once your nails have been softened by warm, clean water, generously dispense soap onto your hands and lather. Apply the soap to the infected area, as well as surrounding areas that could be contaminated by fungus.
It is important to thoroughly clean the infected area before applying treatment. Make sure you remove any dirt, sweat, or other particles when washing your nails.
(Be careful when scrubbing sensitive areas. Don’t hurt yourself!)
Scrub your feet (or hands) vigorously, especially focusing on the nails and the area directly around the nails. Using your fingers, apply pressure as you scrub these areas to loosen the skin and release any trapped dirt or grime.
Topical treatment needs to penetrate the area under and around the nail bed. Vigorous scrubbing opens up these areas, ensuring maximum treatment efficacy. Do not scrub so hard that you cause nail breakage or damage.
Using a clean towel, dry the infected area completely. Push hard into the areas around your nails to ensure that no moisture is trapped. Any lingering moisture can exacerbate your fungal infection.
Nail fungus grows under the nail and within the nail bed so it is important to remove as muh excess nail as possible before continuing with treatment.
Apply Treatment to Nail Tops
Using a soft brush, carefully apply a liberal amount of a treatment containing exactly 10% Undecylinic Acid to the tops of infected nails. Make sure to use short, even brushstrokes towards your body and make sure the treatment is distributed evenly across the entire nail. Covering the entire nail evenly is very important.
Using a brush that’s too hard can cause nail breakage or damage, which is harmful and can help fungus proliferate. By brushing the solution towards your body, any excess solution will run towards the source of the nail growth and help fight the fungal infection. Additionally, treatments that use more than 10% Undecylinic acid can damage your nails, while less than that is often too weak to be effective.
Apply Treatment to Nail Side & Skin
Brush the sides of the nail and the skin surrounding the nail with treatment until the solution is distributed evenly.
Apply Treatment to Nail Front
Brush the front of the nail the treatment solution until the front of the nail has been covered with the treatment solution.
The nail front, especially for people with thick nails, can be a constant source of fungal irritation. Make sure that the nail front is properly treated.
On days in which you have cut or filed your nails, be sure to apply a small amount of treatment to all nails, even those unaffected by nail fungus.
Even when you clean your hands, toe nail clipper, files, and other tools between each nail, there is a chance that fungus can cross-contaminate previously unaffected nails. Applying a small amount of treatment to all your nails can reduce your risk of developing nail fungus in unaffected nails.
Allow treatment time to dry completely.
Ensure full absorption of treatment. Any wetness can promote fungus.
Wear appropriate footwear. Sandals without socks are optimal. If you wear closed toe shoes, make sure they are loose and do not compress your foot. Always wear moisture wicking socks, especially for strenuous athletic activity or whenever your feet might sweat.
Any excess moisture or sweat can provide a potent breeding ground for nail fungus. Moisture wicking socks, open toed shoes or sandals, and breathable mesh sneakers are all good footwear options.
Be sure to change your socks every day, and rotate your footwear.
Having clean socks and fresh footwear can prevent the proliferation of fungal spores and reduces the opportunity for the fungal infection to spread or reinfect your nails.
Persistence & Dedication:
One of the most important things to remember when treating your nail fungus is that it takes patience. Your nail fungus didn’t develop overnight, and it’s not likely to be cured overnight, either. Persistence and dedication are keys to fighting your nail fungus. Even if you don’t see results in the first day, week, or month, keep trying. You should review this guide regularly to ensure that you are following all the steps as closely as possible. A lack of progress may indicate that you aren’t following the guide, that you are doing the wrong treatment, or that you should keep trying. Curing nail fungus isn’t easy, but the satisfaction that you will feel wearing sandals to the beach is more than worth it.

This guide promotes the use of topical treatments for curing your nail fungus and does not address the efficacy of oral or alternative nail fungus treatments. If you do not find topical treatments to be effective, we recommend that you consult a doctor. Even if you’ve decided to use oral medications for toenail fungus, we recommend using a topical treatment in addition to the oral.
