In brief: Three options

There are three main treatment options for toenail fungus.
The first option is an oral medication. The tablets although highly effective do have some possible side effects and consequences. Direct doctor supervision is needed. The second option is laser treatment. This option is also highly effective, in my experience, without any significant side effect. The third option is a topical medication.

In brief: Lamisil, (terbinafine) laser

Lamisil (terbinafine) can be conpunded with DMSO and use topically as a prescription to avoid oral medications.
Oral lamisl is about 58 effective and not in extensive cases. Lasers are now available which can reduce nail fungus including the sciton.

In brief: Medication

There are many over the counter products that quite honestly don't work too well.
The most effective treatment is usually prescription antifungals that are taken orally.
