I have had a significant case of toe nail fungus for several years. My nails get almost claw like. Terbinafine didn’t help. What can I do?

In brief: Home remedies

Oral antifungals are pricey, can harm your liver and often don't work.
Home remedies like soaking in apple cider vinegar or applying tea tree oil are often successful but need to do regularly for months- see https://www.earthclinic.com/cures/fungus.html for detailed info on home remedies.
