I have had toenail fungus since I was a teenager, but rarely had athlete's foot, though I'm sure I picked up this loathsome infection from the school gym. For years it was just in one middle toe but eventually it had spread to all of them except the two big/great toes. I underwent two rounds of treatments with the generic equivalent of Lamisil and now it's gone except in the middle toe where it all started. However since going paeleo in January it looks a little better. I used to get so-called jock itch all the time but not any more. I'm hoping the toenail thing will eventually clear but they grow so slowly that it may take a year to notice much change. A few of the cured toenails are permanently distorted. Oh well.
A few people criticized me for taking such a potentially-toxic medication for something they thought was largely cosmetic, but having it it more than a few toes is painful, smelly, and cutting the infected nail often caused the whole thing to shatter and bleed, so it wasn't mere vanity though that certainly was a factor. I don't think going paleo alone would knock out such a chronic infection esp. given that the little bastards feed on keratin and aren't dependent on carb intake, unlike Candida, but who knows, maybe over a few years the change in body chemistry might have an effect; as I mentioned I no longer get jock itch, and the fungi responsible for that and toenail infection, ringworm, etc are all closely related so it's not unfeasible for a paleo diet to help clear them out.
I guess I need to EAT. MOAR. COCONUTZ.
