Your first "step"

Toenails
(if it wasn't already one) is to have the nails cultured. Not all thick, discolored nails are fungal, and while it's possible for it to spread to fingernails, it's VERY uncommon. There are a number of dermatological conditions that can cause nails to change, including psoriasis (which has an associated arthritis). Get diagnosed before starting any treatment.

Dr. Libby Putnam answered:

Is there a good home remedy for toenail fungus?

We can try!

Fungus
Toenail fungus is very common, and unfortunately very difficult to cure 100%. We can test the nail to see if it is a callused or traumatized nail or if it is indeed fungus, and from there you have several options: topical or oral antifungal medications, laser nail treatment, or removal of the nail in severe cases. See your doctor to talk about which treatment is right for you.

What is a good home remedy for toenail fungus and risk of spreading to others?

Medicine works best

Podiatry
There is no home remedy that is effective. You can try topical antifungal medications, but the ones provided in podiatry offices are more effective than those in the pharmacy. There are other options, including oral medication, that are also effective.

If someone has foot fungus and toenail fungus for years, what other side effects can occur with in the body?

None

Nail fungus is caused by a type of fungus called a dermatophyte. Other than also causing athletes foot, there are few internal medical concerns. That's not to say you shouldn't treat them. Thick fungus nails can cause pain and bacterial infection, especially in diabetics or patients with poor circulation.
