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.

Oral meds most effective. Laser has benefits. Topical is useless except in superficial white onychomycosis

In brief: No great way

There are topical medications, medications by mouth, laser.

Stubborn problem! usually requires prescription anti fungal pills for 12 weeks, though i've had some patients had success with clorox bleach pens painted on the nails each night.
