    Hi Slick, a slight yellow tinge from a once damaged toenail, it is a fungal infections. It is a contagious disease. Abnormal pH level of the skin, trauma to the nail, unhygienic feet and decreased immunity of the body permit this disease.

    Toenail fungus remedy :

    * Tea tree oil is a potent natural antiseptic and fungicide that will help fight your fungus. Apply undiluted tea tree oil with olive oil to the affected toe nail. Alternatively you can put few drops of tea tree oil on toenails and rub it thoroughly every day.

    * Soak your toes in Listerine mouthwash. The powerful antiseptic leaves your toe nails looking healthy.

    * Soak your toenails for 15 - 20 minutes in basin full of warm water and natural apple cider vinegar mixed in equal proportion. When done, dry your toenails thoroughly. Use a hair dryer on warm setting to absorb all the moisture in and around the toes.

    * Put equal amount of tea tree oil and lavender oil on a cotton ball or swab. Dab it under the top edge of the toe nail and surrounding area 2 or 3 times a day. Tea tree oil is natural antibiotic and lavender will help fight the infection and prevent skin irritation.

    * Blend 2 drops of Oregano essential oil with a tsp of olive oil. Apply this mixture on the affected area daily for NOT more than three weeks. Oregano essential oil has antiseptic, antibacterial, antiparasitical, antiviral, analgesic and antifungal properties.

    * Until the growth of the new nail is complete, apply apple cider vinegar 2 or 3 times a day.

    * Lather AHA creams onto your feet before going to bed. This will flush the rough scaly skin from your feet that is more prone to growing fungus.

    if its from nail polish, use lime or lemon juice on your nail. if not, it might be from bruising; depending on how you hurt your toe. let it grow out. if not, well, then it could be an infection so go see a foot doctor.
