Of all the many bizarre antifungal remedies advertised these days, you may now add one more to your list, Cornmeal. For one reason or another people have the tendency to experiment with such food and home products such as cornmeal, thinking that these products have magical chemicals to rid their nails of a fungal infection.

Nail fungus as an infection that requires medical attention. Using home remedies such as food or household cleaning products is not only absurd, but can also be potentially dangerous. The chemicals found in many of these products are not meant for contact with human skin or to be ingested in any form. Thus, using products such as cornmeal or bleach to “cure” your nail fungus, is a mere waste of time and a potential harm.
