No, fluorouracil cream won't really help with toe nail fungus. You need to apply some sort of antifungal product. If the infection is really bad then it might be a good idea to see your doctor and get something to take orally.
Fluorouracil interferes with the growth of skin cells. Fluorouracil works by causing the death of cells which are growing fastest, such as abnormal skin cells.
Fluorouracil topical is used to treat scaly overgrowths of skin (actinic or solar keratoses). Fluorouracil topical may also be used in the treatment of superficial basal cell carcinoma.
