In brief: There are many

Treatments range from topical medicine, to medication by mouth, to laser treatment.
What you have to remember is that it takes approx. 1 year for the nail to grow out clear.

In brief: See below

Initially, you can try some over-the-counter anti-fungal creams and powders.
If that doesn't work, you may need a prescription strength cream and/or oral anti-fungal medications to kill all the fungus. Any skin itching or peeling due to fungus might get sufficiently treated with a cream. But, toenail fungus (yellowing, odor) may need oral tablets.
