I have nail fungus. Is there any remedy for this?

With the fungus growth stopped, as your nail grows, the infection is pushed off the end and it may take 9-12 months for it to grow off completely. Lamisil (terbinafine) is implanted into the nail bed and stays there for the duration after you do the 90 days. Read more
