I got "35%" from nightingale pharmacy in south lake, after using it or a few weeks and having no improvements, I put 1 drop on my skin, knowing it should oxidize, nothing at all. So I ordered H2O2 test strips, and after testing a diluted solution I've determined I was sold 3% I'll be heading back to nightingales and demanding they refund my money. Will be trying a supplier on eBay.

Hi, It is safe to use 35% diluted 1x HP-10x water. You need to be totally committed to a regime of washing with soap, cutting the nails as far back as you can and applying the HP at least twice a day. I applied with cotton wool and went over toes as well. Try this for at least 1 x month. My nails are slowly growing out the fungus, it takes a long time. But they are looking a lot better. Wash your clippers or anything else coming into contact with the fungus with the HP. Good luck.

Hi, I am curious if 35% h2o2 can be used on toenail fungal problems? If so, how much would I use or what dilution would it be? Has anyone cured this difficult problem? Thanks
