You might want to meet with your neurologist to make sure there is no other contributory cause (i.e. Infections, b12, vit. D deficiency...). Updated mris, oct may be in order. ...Read more

What is the best over-the-counter remedy for toenail fungus? Is it okay that I use nail polish? They look yellow and terrible.

Toenail fungus: There is no good otc treatment for toenail fungus. The laquers work slightly better than the creams, but it will basically only slow the process down. To get effective treatment you really need a prescription medication like Lamisil (terbinafine) (250 mg daily for 42 days) or sporanox. These are now available cheaply as generics (about $30 for a 6 week course). ...Read more

For a natural remedy...What amts and how long  use castor oil /tea tree oil for treatmt of nail fungus/athletes foot? How do they need diluted, if any

Fungus: Natural is GREAT when it works. I have found that it is a hit and miss proposition. You can follow the label on the bottle of tea tree oil or see your podiatrist for a diagnosis and prescription. nail fungus is VERY hard to kill. I would treat both the nails and the athletes foot infection at the same time and get it done as quickly as possible. Good luck. ...Read more

Be sure it's fungus: You should have your nails cultured by a podiatrist to confirm it is actually fungus. Other conditions can cause darkening and thickening of nails and some, like melanoma, are very serious. Also, how long was Lamisil (terbinafine) treatment? For toenails, you need to take it daily for 3 months and then wait an additional 6+ months for clear nail to replace the infected nail. ...Read more

My hands are dark compared to my inner hands and body, i know this s due to sun light. Is there any remedy to make my hands back to normal colour?

Sunscreen: If a one's hands are tanned, and he doesn't like the natural tanned appearance, he can use sunscreen on his hands whenever he is outdoors. Over time, his hands will become less tanned. Some people retain their tanned color for a couple of years, even if protected from the sun... That's just the way nature is. One can also visit a dermatologist for lightening cream, if very unhappy about the tan. ...Read more
