Hard-to-Rid Health Issue Proves Powerless to Topical Product Made From Simple Ingredients

Common Warm Weather Culprit Known as Toe Fungus Is Easily Solved With Dr. Paul's Piggy Paste

WASHINGTON, IL--(Marketwired - May 21, 2013) - This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home...for fear of revealing his ugly toenail. 40 million Americans struggle with unsightly toenails, often feeling its wrath in the summer months. Thick, discolored toenails happen when fungus penetrates the nail bed and can occur for a litany of different reasons. Athletes who wear tight sneakers, women who wear pointy shoes, or ballerina slippers are just some of the likely victims. The pesky problem, Onychomycosis (commonly referred to as toenail fungus) and known as a most difficult problem to get rid, is not a result of poor hygiene and has finally met its match.

Paul A. Kinsinger, M.D., an Illinois family physician, took to heart the concerns of his patients and created a unique, vinegar-based formula to treat nails that have become unsightly due to fungus: Dr. Paul's Piggy Paste.

"In my practice, scores of patients would complain of ugly toenails as a result of fungal infections that just wouldn't clear up on their own," said Dr. Kinsinger. "A popular home remedy which requires soaking feet in a mixture of vinegar and water for 20 minutes a day for several months, seemed to work, but my patients balked at the amount of time this involved. This is when I went to the lab (my kitchen) and uncovered the way to deliver the natural healing power of vinegar in an easier application."

Dr. Paul's Piggy Paste consists of a patent-pending formula of vinegar and thymol (a natural substance with antiseptic properties that is the active ingredient in some mouthwashes) in a penetrating gel. 

Today, Dr. Paul's Piggy Paste is available nationwide in Walgreens, CVS and Rite Aid as well as other select retailers. To find a retailer or to order the product online, visit
