Is raw apple cider vinegar good to fight toenail fungus?

Not bad.: The vinegar is an acid, which most opportunistic fungus and bacteria don't like to live in! the issue is that it often can't penetrate the nail enough to get to all of the fungus.

See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you. ...Read more

See your doctor: I'm not quite sure what you had asked cause the question was cut off. With that said, the wart should be looked at by a podiatrist or dermatologist.

Use of acidic substances (which actually makes almost no difference anyway) will alter the urine pH and that will be detected, and other cleansing agents don't work. STOP SMOKING POT - that works. ...Read more
