I have fungus under some of my toe nails. Are there alternative treatments (home) to get rid of it?

In brief: Maybe?

The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time.
I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them.

In brief: Tee Tree oil

Try tee tree oil from your local health food store or whole food.
Takes a while (months), but can be helpful.
