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.

In brief: Oral Lamisil (terbinafine) is

Still the most reliable way to treat toenail fungus.
The drug has now been proven to be much safer than we originally thought, and the fda dropped the blood test requirement. Pulse therapy lamisil, (terbinafine) where you only take 14 pills in 6 months, has been shown to have the same cure rate as taking it every day for 3 months. Talk to your podiatrist, and get it cultured first.

In brief: We can try!

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.
