Fungus: Natural is GREAT when it works. I have found that it is a hit and miss proposition. You can follow the label on the bottle of tea tree oil or see your podiatrist for a diagnosis and prescription. nail fungus is VERY hard to kill. I would treat both the nails and the athletes foot infection at the same time and get it done as quickly as possible. Good luck.

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

What's the most effective an FAST way to cure ringworm? Apple cider vinegar? Tea tree oil? Garlic?

Real antifungal: Tolaftate is available without a prescription. Terbinafine topical is also good. I'd prefer to see you use a topical agent rather than taking medication systemically whenever possible. These should be effective but it may take a few weeks. Apple cider vinegar, tea tree oil, and garlic are promoted on "natural healing" sites for everything -- trying them would be your business. Best wishes.

Can tea tree oil cure foot fungus toe nail fungus?

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.

Antibiotics v yogurt: Bacterial vaginosis is an imbalance in vaginal bacteria. Standard treatment is antibiotics, not bathing as described so go see family doc or gynecologist. There is some evidence that eating yogurt w/lactobacilli might help restore balance but studies aren't definitive. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/bacterial-vaginosis/ds01193 & http://www. Cdc. Gov/std/bv/stdfact-bacterial-vaginosis. Htm.

Get checked: You may have a sensitivity to the chemicals in the tea tree, or to an additive, and may require medical attention to get healed. Do see your medical professional for treatment of your condition, to find out whether it is safe for you to use tea tree oil, and to find an alternative treatment for your acne. Hope that helps.
