Well, : Well, like with most belief systems, just because we can't give a logical explanation doesn't mean there is no reason. We just don't know the reason! sometimes, this happens for no "apparent" reason. Chances are, there is already a new nail growing there already. If you have no pain, there is nothing to do.

Dr oz recommends Vicks vaporub or vinegar solution for nail fungus. Are they effective at all? How about tea tree oil?
Hogwash: First off, make certain your nails are fungal with a fungus culture. If they are, the most effective treatment is oral anti-fungal medication, which has been recently shown to be much safer than we originally thought.
