Brief Answer:
Go for oral antifungals

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
For fungal nail infection you need to take oral antifungals.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to take capsule itraconazole 200 mg twice daily for 1 week in a month for 3-4 months.
This will help in resolving it.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
