Hello, I would like to help you with your question concerning an infected toe and how to cure it. Infections of the feet can be difficult to cure sometimes because the blood flow to this area tends to be less abundant than in other parts of the body. Also the feet carry many different types of organisms including bacteria, fungus, and yeast. So it is possible that the infection could be the result of any or all of these. In order to cure these types of infections, it is necessary to address any dietary and lifestyle factors which may be interfering with the normal functioning of the immune system. For example, micro-organisms that cause toe infections tend to thrive in the presence of sugar. So it would be an excellent idea to eliminate dietary sugar, including fruit and fruit juice, as well as carbohydrates and refined foods for a time. Wearing open-toed shoes or sandals can be helpful, as well as quitting smoking if this is an issue. Colloidal Silver can be effective for killing many different kinds of organisms. It can be applied topically and taken orally several times per day. Here is a link to an example of a useful Colloidal Silver product: http://www.supersup.com/natural-immunogenics-sovereign-silver-immune-support-10-ppm-50-mcg-2-fl-oz-drops-60-ml-684088232364 Taking extra Vitamin C in doses of 1000mg 3 or 4 times per day, and taking extra Zinc for a few days at 30mg 2 or 3 times per day with meals can help to stimulate the immune system and improve wound healing. Homeopathic Staphysagria 30C can be useful after a surgery to help heal a wound. The dosage is 5 pellets dissolved under the tongue, two or three times per day for up to 5 days. An herb called Gingko Biloba can help to increase the flow of blood to the toes. Taking this herb may be helpful if decreased blood flow is a particular issue in your case (i.e. if the feet are often cold). If the infection gets worse or does not heal within a reasonable amount of time, please consult with your doctor. Dr. Zeoli
