The pharmacist suggested a brush on liquid which contained tolnaflate and as I already had athlete's foot cream containing it, decided to use that.
Even if you are able to treat the fungus, usually your nail has to grow out before you see results which can take several months.
Other things to take into account is diet. Eliminating sugar and minimizing gluten should help your body fight fungus and try to include anti-fungal foods: garlic, onion, coconut oil, honey, carrots.
Also add probiotic foods: Kefir, Greek yogurt.
Suggestions I found online:
- Apply the infected area with coconut oil and let soak 15 minutes (add a few drops of oregano oil for extra benefit).
- Foot bath with one part vinegar and one part Epsom salts to 6 parts water.
- Cider vinegar and warm water
