In brief: Drugs

Usually onychomycosis persists life long unless treated with an effective anti-fungal agent such as terbinafine or itraconazole which have replaced the more toxic griseofulvin.
You need a doctor's prescription for the oral meds laser treatments are now being offered.

In brief: Several treatments.

The reason you hear so many different treatments for toenail fungus is because there is no perfect, sure-fire treatment that works 100% of the time.
I've seen vaporub work, as well as other natural oil remedies, but rarely. You can also try laser therapy, antifungal creams, paints, or even oral medications if your doctor deems you healthy enough to take them.

In brief: Have them evaluated.

There are topical and oral antifungal medications available for the treatment of nail fungus.
Specialized lasers are also now available for treatment of fungal nail infections. Have your nails evaluated and get the appropriate treatment.
