Have you ever had peeling nails?  I have to the point that my fingertips were painful.  Thankfully, a nice Nurse Practitioner did some research and found that sometimes the cause can be due to a kind of yeast infection.  And you are not going to believe the cure:


Yep, just soak your fingers for 20 minutes each day in a mixture of vinegar and water.  She didn't know the exact ratio of vinegar to water, so I just dolloped some vinegar into a cup of water and soaked.    

I was amazed at how fast I could tell this was helping and soon the nails were beginning to clear up.  And, as a bonus, my very soft nails are now much stronger.

Don't be afraid to give this a try...the NP assured me that it couldn't hurt, even if there was no yeast infection. 

Hope this helps someone out there!!
