Using Alcohol To Kill Nail Fungus

Nail Fungus Cure With Alcohol

Nail fungus exists below the fingernails or toenails, making spores and as a result it is difficult to reach and cure at times.

However, there is a very familiar treatment for this fungus infection – this is rubbing alcohol. If you can use rubbing alcohol regularly, it can disinfect the area and slowly make your nail area look like before.

Generally nail fungus thrives in places that are warm, dark and moist. That is why those who wear shoes constantly in warmer climates tend to get infected by toenail fungus.

Another chance for nail fungus to enter into your body is when the nail breaks. Also it is observed that most people cut toenails extremely close to the skin, causing multiple small cuts in the skin; these cuts permit the fungus to enter and spread.


If affected by nail fungus, the nail usually starts to become yellowy in color with white patches, gets flaky, brittle, and thick and starts paining.

If such things happen then the treatment of nail fungus should be started immediately.
One commonly used home remedy for toenail fungus is rubbing alcohol.

Rubbing alcohol is a liquid prepared and used basically for topical application.

It is prepared from a denaturized alcohol solution and contains 97.5-100% by volume of pure concentrated ethanol (ethyl alcohol).
This is how you should treat your nail with alcohol:


• Soak your nails in rubbing alcohol.
• Immerse your nails into this for 20 minutes twice a day.
• Dry thoroughly.


Rubbing alcohol will kill the fungus.
However, rubbing alcohol does not work for spores.

So, it is a good remedy if the infection is in initial stage.
Be careful! Poisoning can occur due to ingestion, inhalation, or consumption of rubbing alcohol.
