    use atheletes foot powder. fungus likes to live in dark moist places. the powder absorbs the sweat taking one element away from the fungus.

    Topical anti-fungal preparations are not usually helpful. On the upside the problem is really only cosmetic. There is no real danger. If it really bothers you then consult your physician and he/she may be able to prescribe some medications that will deal with the stomach upset while taking the Lamisil. Good Luck

    Athletes foot is not nail fungus. You need something that will kill the fungus that grows under the nail and its not that easy. The doctor can proscribe something.

    You can buy over the counter stuff but you must put it on everyday on clean dry feet. Sometimes twice a day. It’s best to keep the nail short and file down the thick nail then put the med on.

    Soak nails in hydrogen peroxide with witch hazel for 3 mins a day. Or soak in an antiseptic like Dettol for at least 2 mins a day and eventually it will grow out and keep cutting the nails but be certain to disinfect the clippers afterwards.

    When I was in manicure school in CA . . . one very helpful instructor told us about a ‘little known’ (and cheap) cure for nail fungus…


    Have not had reason to test this out myself, but, I can’t see how/why it would hurt to try it!
    Best wishes to you in your quest . . .
