There are few: There are 3 main treatment options for toenail fungus. The 1st option is an oral medication. The tablets although highly effective do have some possible side effects. The 2nd option is laser treatment, a highly effective option in my experience. The 3rd option is a topical medication, which is the least effective of the three. Consult your doctor for the right treatment for you.
