Nail fungus: You can try topicals like PenLac (ciclopirox) which you have to use daily for 3 months or oral Lamisol 250 a day again for 6- 12 weeks but you have to to check your liver tests. Some remove the nail but for a small spot that may not be needed. Some podiatrist use laser. Follow up with podiatry.

See below: File away as much of the bad nail as possible and then start using a topical liquid antifungal or soaking in Listerine.
