Tea Tree Fungus: This is commonly used as a natural remedies for toenail fungus but my experience is that it is not very effective in moderate or severe cases. It may be slightly effective if there is only a small amount of fungus present. Keeping the nail trimmed short and filed thin may help at work slightly better.
