What is the best way to get rid of nail fungus?

I contracted a nail fungus at a nail saloon.

Nail salons, the breeding grounds for nail fungus. There are plenty of over the counter treatments for nail fungus that are applied the same way as nail polish is. However, if the infecton is severe, under the nails, or if nails are chipping, it is time to see a physician.

Simple home cures involve the use of nonrescription topical solutions. For mild to moderate fungal infection, you may use anti-fungal nail polish or nail varnishes. These anti-fungal nail varnishes may have tea tree oil which is effective in treating the infection. If you have Lamisil anti-fungal cream at home, rub twice a day. If it's too extensive, visit a doctor.

Go to the drugstore and get a powdered athlete's foot medicine like Tinactin. Apply it regularly and make sure to keep your nails clean and dry.

There are prescription drugs to get rid of this problem. Another is to put Vicks vapor rub on the nails at night. This is especially good for toenail fungus. Prescription drugs include polishes and/or pills.
