In brief: No

No, you will likely need more focused treatment than vinegar for nail fungus.
Your family physician or a dermatologist can help you with this.

In brief: Seems to be true

Even the mayo clinic provides info on it: www.

Some people note some improvement in the appearance of the nail while they use vinegar regularly, but I would not recommend this as a firstline choice.

In brief: Vinegar nail fungus

This is something i often here patient's say they have tried as a home remedy.
While there may be some validity to using vinegar to soften the nail which may help the fungus leave the nail more easily, I have not read anything in which vinegar itself is an antifungal agent.
