Good Day
You need to apply antifungal ointment like Terbinafine and also take an oral antifungal to prevent the two above mentioned conditions and effectively get a cure as well. Ingrown toe nails may need to be removed. Consult a Dermatologist to help you on the right treatment. Avoid sweaty conditions, keep your feet dry, and airy.
