Hydrogen peroxide is antifungal. Vicks VapoRub contains essential oils from plants with antifungal activity, specifically thymol from thyme, menthol from peppermint, eucalyptol from eucalyptus, and camphor from a relative of cinnamon (Cinnamomum camphora).
What You Need
- Hydrogen peroxide
- Vicks VapoRub
Preparation And Use
1In the evening, shower and wash your toes carefully or soak and wash your toes in a small tub of warm water.
2Dry them thoroughly with a clean towel (launder the towel after each use).
3Wet a cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide and apply to each toenail, using a fresh cotton ball for each nail so as not to spread infection.
4Let your toes air dry or pat them dry after the peroxide foaming subsides.
5Make sure they are thoroughly dry; and then coat each toenail with Vicks.
6Cover your feet with cotton socks (which you must wash after wearing); this keeps the Vicks working on your toes and off your sheets.
