In brief: Toenail
Best treatment for toenail fungus is a pill called Lamisil or generic, terbinafine.
Ask your dermatologist for a prescription. It will take three months of treatment and repeat treatments are often necessary.

In brief: Topical option
Topical Clotrimazole (over the counter athlete's foot cream) rubbed into the cuticle twice a day can sometimes control the effects but it will not cure it.
For some in whom the pills may not be safe, it is an option. The toenail fungus will return when the topical cream is stopped.
