Does this so called fungus attacks your body from the outside or does it hibernates in your blood stream and comes to the extremities to feed and reproduce???
Fungal nail infections may be difficult to treat. Medicines clear up fungus in only about 50% of patients.
"... Over-the-counter creams and ointments generally do not help treat this condition.
Prescription antifungal medicines taken by mouth may help clear the fungus.
You will need to take the medicine for about 2 to 3 months for toenails; a shorter time for fingernails
Fluconazole griseofulvin, terbinafine, and itraconazole are used to treat this condition.
Your health care provider will do lab tests to check for liver damage while you are taking these medicines.
In some cases, the health care provider may remove the nail. Nails grow slowly. Even if treatment is successful, a new, clearer nail may take up to a year to grow in."
Sorry not to be able to give you more positive information!
