In brief: Yes

Your toenails should grow back after fungus is treated.
However, you may need an oral antifungal medication to get rid of the fungus. Topical medications tend to not work very well. However if it going away with the topical keep at it, topicals are safer than the oral medicines.

Remember that all successful fungal nail treatments are predicated on the fact that the nail actually is infected by a fungus and that the infection has not permanently damaged the nail root. Root damage will definitely be a spoiler in the cosmetic appearance of the nail. Nail fungal infections can also be confused with merely thickened nails, caused by serious nail and root trauma.

tincture of iodine now comes in a clear solution. It takes an infected great toe toenail to grow in normally. Just paint under the nail if separated and the nail itself once a day.
