what is most effective in treating finger nail fungal infection if loceryl is not very effective by itself?

Debridement.: Loceryl is a topical treatment for nail fungus. Topical treatments are often ineffective for nail fungus. Oral antifungals are more effective but usually require blood tests and carry increased risks. Formula 3 is a fairly effective topical medication available in some doctors offices. Debridement (thinning, cutting) of the nail combined with topical meds usually gives better results. See a dr.

Onychomycosis: Usually this means taking off the entire nail, but as someone famous once said the only guarantees in life are death and taxes. Good luck.
