[YEA] Tea Tree Oil for Nail Fungus worked for me: Through summer I stayed in sandals, kept tea-tree and also a dropper bottle of vinegar on me, and alternated between them at least daily, or whenever I was thinking about it. I agree about sanding down the surface of the nail (but not dremmel... you don't want to accidentally go through the nail... ouch! I filed it with one of those file/polish/buff tools you can buy for shining up the nail surface.
Gives you control so you don't go too thin - but definitely sand as thin as possible, this will remove as much infected nail surface as possible and help the oil penetrate through the nail - google "nail shiner buffer sand block file" for images/buying options.
Also keep nails as short as possible; you want oil (and vinegar if you decide to use that too) to penetrating all cracks and crevices on and around nail.
But YES THIS WORKS. With the Tea Tree, as with vinegar, you are creating a hostile environment that the little critters can't live in, and with no hiding places! Keep it up until the nail grows in clean. Be prepared, it could take months for the regrowth!
