Tea Tree Oil works on both my big toes nails, but at 100% it hardens up the skin, so like I read, have to dilute it if I use TTO every day. I have tried using TTO at 100% once or twice a week, and to keep the skin soft I apply skin lotion to the skin around the toes several days a week. Still learning, but for sure both big toe nails are slowly getting back to what was normal. Also, I trim the white fungus nail as short as possible. And in the shower I brush with warm soapy water to clear away any fungus or nail debris, and all of this seems to help from was about 50% toe nail fungus whitish nail to now about 15%.

A few drops of tea tree oil each day on the infected nail (it was bad). After six months I now have a healthy nail.
