Brief Answer:
Clotrimazole should help.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The best way to fight nail fungi is to keep the nails clean (not allowing particulate matter to accumulate in the corners) and to apply Candid (clotrimazole) lotion a few times a day.

Let me know if I could help further.
