Difficult to treat: Toe fungus has to be one of the most difficult problems to resolve. Even the prescription medication requires 48 weeks of applications. Oral medication is available for this condition. There can be side affects like any medication. Once you get this condition and clear it there is a very high probability it will reoccur. A very difficult condition to treat with no definitive way of treating it.

I don't find: Any topicals to be very effective on toe nail fungus. Oral Lamisil (terbinafine) is much more effective.
