Reviews from People who Treated Nail Fungus with Help of Birch Tar
Elena, 36 years old: I am very glad that the first remedy I tried from the fungus is birch tar. He helped me in 5 days. Nail safely gone and growing new. I hope this trouble will not happen to me anymore. The only thing you need to be ready for is the smell. But believe me, this is a trifle compared to the medicinal properties of tar. It helps quickly, and the procedure is very simple. Recommend.
Jaroslav, 42 years: I have had nail fungus for several years. I did not want to take the pills because of liver problems. The composition that removes the nail, did not help. There was a relapse. I decided to try birch tar. I heard about this tool from my father. I regret not having done this before. Already on the 4th day I noticed a positive effect. The main thing is not to forget to smear and between the toes to remove all the particles of the fungus. You can use the usual tar soap, something that is darker. The effect will not be as fast as that of pure mass, but it will still be necessary.
