Trying Coco Nail

I’m trying out a new nail fungus treatment tentatively called Coco Nail. It is from Biotectics. I’ve got nothing to say about it yet. We’ll see how it goes!

    Lee, what made you want to try it? I googled it and don’t see anything on the internet about it; and what a strange name! lol

  2. Lee says:

    The owner of the company came directly to me to try it. I’ll tell you all more about it after I’d had a chance to try it and see if it works. I’ve just been applying it for a few days now. I’ve been taking photos and logging my condition. This may take a few months, but hey, these nail conditions aren’t going anywhere, right?

    Are you going to post the photos while this is happening or at the end? If the owner needs another subject, I am game. Best wishes Lee! Looking forward to finding out the results!

    I’ll post at the end. I don’t want to give false hope or despair. I want to show results!

    Hey Lee so it has almost been a month, have you noticed anything?

    My nail growth is very slow. “Maybe” is all I can say right now, which is certainly better than “no”.

    Again, I don’t want to give false hope or despair. I want to show results. Sorry I can’t say more. If I showed you my before and after photos of my nail, you’d say, “Hmm, I dunno, it looks different but I can’t tell if it’s going to grow in correctly. Darn I wish I could see if the fungus under the nail has died. I guess we have to wait for it to grow out to see.”

    I tried using it for a few months and it was about as effective as every other topical: it kept my infection from growing but didn’t get under the nail to stop the infection at its source. Sorry.

    thanks for the update. I think it is just a nuisance we live with. I now see so many people with it now that I have it. lol I never noticed before.

    Blue, yup!

    My favorite maintenance treatment for the last two years has been dandruff shampoo. I rub Selsun Blue or a generic version of it on my feet when I’m in the shower every week or so. This keeps my chronic athlete’s foot from coming back and has so far kept the infection from spreading to more nails. It’s inexpensive, easy to apply and cleans my feet! This maintenance treatment has kept the skin on my feet pleasantly soft; the chronic athlete’s foot would make my feet callused, tough and ichy.

    A brief history: a few years back I took two courses of oral Lamisil, this cleared up the infection on 9 of my 10 toes. Now only my right big-toe is infected.
