In brief: Medication or laser

Fungus is an organism theat thrives in the skin and nails and lives in a dark, damp environment like shoes and socks.
First you need to culture the nail to determine it is fungus. Once confirmed, discuss with your podiatric physician possible treatments. These would include topical and oral meds and laser.

In brief: Antifungals or laser

Fungal infections of the nail are most commonly treated with a prescription of anti fungal pills.
A relatively new treatment available is the use of lasers. Consult with your doctor or podiatrist for treatment options.

In brief: Keep in mind...

The fda has recently come out with a blanket statement that toenail fungus can not be cured.
It is "managed" by a number of modalities, but it can always come back in the future. Oral antifungal medicines (lamisil), topical medications (formula 3), laser therapy, surgical removal, homeopathic applications (tea tree oil). Talk to a podiatrist for what will be best and most effective for you.
