Topical : Topical treatments essentially don't work for nail fungus. There are anti fungal nail lacquers that are inexpensive and with really 0 side effects, but the response rate is about 10%. Nightly soaks for 20 minutes in dilute white vinegar (1/2c per gallon) probably has the same meager response. Oral antifungal medicine is really they way to go for this, but even that only has a 70% response rate.
