The illness     : Onychomycosis (Dermatophytic onychomycosis or fungal infection of the nail).

Remedy         : 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.

In the US you will find 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in any drugstore, for a few dollars. I think that’s the case in UK as well. What you have to do is to buy a bottle of this fluid and a syringe (needle) of this type. You need to cut of the end of the needle and file it to make sure that you don’t hurt yourself during the process of the treatment (e.g. spraying under the nail or at the root of the nail). 

Almost immediately after you have sprayed the fluid on the affected area it will start foaming, this as a consequence of the fluid’s reaction with the fungus. The treatment is by no means dangerous (this is the stuff actors put in their mouth (to produce foam) when performing an epileptic seizure or rabies). During the treatment – after letting the fluid soften up the nail and skin – you should help the process by lightly scratching/carving on the affected area with the needle. Doing this gently you can also reach an affected root of the nail as well. You might wipe up the foam (residue) now and then and then just apply more Hydrogen Peroxide on the affected area.

This treatment can be carried out for as long as you want to, until you can see that the foaming-process is decreasing. I would guess that a treatment of 15 minutes, one to two times a day (the first few days), would do it. As this treatment will cure you, there is no need to rush. Take a treatment now and then, maybe a couple of times a week. After a short while, maybe already within a week, you will be symptom free although you won’t really see it until a new fresh nail is growing out.

Even though you have become symptom free, you should keep an eye on your nails and also carry out a treatment now and then to avoid a relapse. Note that as Hydrogen Peroxide reacts on any organic materials (e.g. dead skin cells and germs), spraying your nails might start a foaming reaction between the nail and the skin, even though you are symptom free.

Well, that’s it. It can’t get easier or better than this, cheap and without any side effects. Obviously the medical industry, like Novartis, the producer of the expensive and harmful pill; Lamisil (which can destroy your liver (read more about side effects here and here)), will suffer a substantial economic loss if you chose to treat yourself in a more lenient way as suggested here.

3% Hydrogen Peroxide has several areas of utilisation, from cleaning your toothbrush to antiseptic use and more. In this regard I recommend you to search the Internet and read literature about Hydrogen Peroxide and its extensive utilisation. The bottle should be stored in the fridge.

Fell free to give me feedback and ideas of additional use for this product and I will update the article with this new information. I would also appreciate if any one of you could evolve this article to a more scientific level, explaining what really happens in this process.

Enjoy your Christmas gift and happy holidays to all of you.
