Inexpensive Nail Fungus Treatment

For the last 3 years I have been keeping my toenail fungus at bay with Selsun Blue anti-dandruff shampoo. It works as well as all the other topical antifungals but it is far less expensive and easier to apply. Actually, I have been using the CVS brand generic anti-dandruff shampoo. Once or twice a week when I am in the shower I rub a little bit on my whole foot. It works very well.

I’ve written a lot on my blog about nail fungus over the years. I’ve pointed out many scams like Fungavir, Zetaclear, and Claripro. Actually, pretty much if you can’t buy it at a local pharmacy, it’s almost definitely a scam.

    Lee, once again you have saved me! Does it work only as maintenance, or on an active fungus?

    It feels like I’ve discovered a bit secret that no one who markets topical foot fungus or hand fungus treatments wants anyone to know! It’s crazy-inexpensive and works for me. And I get clean feet!

    In prior years I would occasionally get outbreaks of athlete’s foot (this is common in people with persistent toenail fungus). I haven’t had any outbreaks since I’ve been using it. And in fact, the skin on my feet and hands is noticeably softer with less cracks and dryness for up to a week after a treatment.

    Try it. Rub anti-dandruff shampoo on your whole foot below the ankle while in the shower (be careful not to slip!), let it sit for a few moments and then wash it off. Tell me if your feet feel better in a few days.

    When you say at bay, does that mean your nail looks cured but isn’t, or it hasn’t spread to the other nails?

    “At bay” means that it hasn’t advanced and it hasn’t retreated. Right now I still have 9 clear toes and 1 yucky big toe. And my chronic athlete’s foot stays away for several weeks whenever I use the shampoo on my feet. I still use it 1-2x per week.

    Best of luck to you and please write back telling me if it works for you!
