3. Thickened nails
Thickened nails happen more to toenails than to fingernails. This can happen due to a fungal infection. Nails become thicker, change their color, start to split, and crumble, which can also be accompanied by an unpleasant odor.
- VapoRub treatment: With toenail clippers and a file cut them short so you can reach the fungus. Apply Vick’s VapoRub on the toenail twice a day.
- Epsom salt: With toenail clippers and a file cut them short enough to reach the fungus. Soak your feet in a basin with warm water and Epsom salt 2 to 3 times a day.
- White vinegar: Trim your nails and soak your feet in a basin with warm water and white vinegar. Proportions: one part of white vinegar, 2 parts of warm water. This will help to reduce the growth of certain bacteria.
