Well, at least the Epsom salt is more comfortable than the vinegar, but at least now you have a back-up plan
in case more of this happens in the future. Now that I re-read some of the comments, I didn't have bacterial infection, just fungus, but it was the entire nailbed. Anyway, now you know how effective the vinegar is for just the fungus alone. It actually works well for antibacterial, too, but it is a power engine for the fungus.
