Fungi-Nail (undecylenic acid) for Onychomycosis "I'm a diabetic and have nail issues, such as lifting and fungus. I'm here to say Fungi nail has helped with fungus and now I can wear beautiful acrylic nails. I blow dry under my nails then apply the Fungi nail."

"I have neuropathy and gout. Zinc Undecylenate is the only treatment that has ever been effective for me in reducing foot pain and allowing me to sleep at night. It is one of the original ingredients in the old formulation of Desenex foot powder and is not available anymore except on Ebay in old tins."

Fungi-Nail (undecylenic acid) for Onychomycosis "I was skeptical. Why name it Fungi-Nail and then say on the package it's not meant to treat nails? With that said, it has worked beautifully. My nails were not as bad as some, but they were discolored and the skin around them was hard and thick. They have improved by 80% in less than 6 months."

For Tinea Pedis "Blistered my toes ,really bad .Has taken almost a month for the skin to stop peeling on my feet . I seriously would not use this on any type of fungal irritation. It also did nothing other than more irritation for a ringworm .This product is more harmful than helpful."

For Tinea Cruris "I still use this medicine as a standby as it reduces the itching associated with jock itch. I may have picked up a resistant strain as the doctor has prescribed a new cream with betamethasone dipropionate and clotrimazole mixed in as a base. I hope this works"

"A large area had failed to respond to two prescription meds, but a daily transdermal treatment of Undecylenic acid (20%), clove oil (20%). It looks healed, but I will continue for three or four weeks more."

For Onychomycosis "I have been using it for 2 weeks now. I could see definite improvement in just 3 days. I know this will take a while to totally eliminate the fungus, but it is definitely working. I used Better Nail by DermeCed. It is full strength-- 20% undecylenic acid. I am using it 3x/day. No irritation or noticeable side effects. It was a bit pricey. Other less expensive options were available, but my research said it needed to be the 20% undecylenic acid. And the reviews were good on this product. It has a brush for easy application and though it is a small bottle it looks like it will last a year easy at 3-4 applications a day."

Fungi-Nail (undecylenic acid) for Onychomycosis "I’ve been using Fung-Nail for a year now. I haven’t seen any progress on my toenails still. If you are trying this for toenail fungus it’s more meant for skin issues around your toes."
