I do not have insurance, so i can’t go to a Dr. The nail is very thick and growing over the top of the toe. Can i cut it off with some type of cutters, or even use a dremel tool to file it off?

Personally, I’ve tried a lot of different stuff over the years. I had dealt with the combo nail fungus and athletes foot for almost 20 years. One "free" thing that did help a lot was vinegar.
It didn’t help much with the nail fungus but it completely stopped the athlete’s foot that I was also suffering from.
For the fungus I tried a lot of different things, including over the counter treatments, vinegar, bleach, tea tree oil, vicks and lavender oil. Some of them did make a little difference but none of them completely killed the fungus.
I also tried lamisil which worked for a while then after a couple of months I had a relapse of the nail fungus. The scary thing with the lamisil is the possible health issues you can face as a result of using it, the doctor had me take a test to make sure my liver wasn’t prone to problems before he’d give me the lamisil… gulp!
In the end what finally fixed my loong term problem with nail fungus was Zeta Clear. I think what also helped is that I made it a part of my daily ritual to use it.
Another thing that I did that probably helped was throw out my old shoes. I have heard that the fungus can live in your shoes and return after treatment. So to avoid a relapse I made sure to get new shoes and throw out the old ones.
Best of Luck!
I added a link in the source box to a great article that has a some pretty interesting info on toenail fungus and the different treatments you can use, if you wanna check it out:
