How do you get rid of toenail fungus?


Answer by  Mally (27)

Usually an antifungal cream will do the trick. You can usually get these over the counter at your local pharmacy, but if the fungus is severe or doesn't go away with OTC drugs, you may want to see your doctor.

There are natural remedies for toenail fungus such as Australian tea tree oil, thyme oil, snake root leaf extract and turmuric. Laser light treatments are effective and painless.

Use a medicated nail polish (not normal polish). Apply topical creams and ointments to the affected area. It is important that your nail 'breathes' so don't cover up your foot.

Prolonged treatment is required to get rid of toe nail fungus. Ciclopirox nail paint combined with urea cream has to be applied on nails for atleast 1 year.

These days there is several over the counter medications to get rid of this fungus. It takes a good while for the fungus to clear totally up. Your doctor may want you to take an antibiotic that treats fungal disorders. Your doctor may need to find the cause before he sets up a treatment plan.
