Suggest treatment for toe nail infection

default
Posted on Fri, 29 Jul 2016
Question: Thank you! My red blotches are slowly reducing & I appreciate your previous response..

My big toe nails have had fungus for the past few years and won't grow. My dermatologist sold me a nail polish that I've been using for a couple months. The fungus hasn't spread but the nails won't grow. Is there anything you can suggest that will do away with this fungus? I've tried listerine & other natural products in the past but he tells me every body has fungus & there's not way of getting rid of it.

Brief Answer:
Fluconazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Probably your doctor has given you amrolofine nail laquer.
It's highly effective, along with this also take tablet fluconazole 150 mg per week for 24 weeks.
It is safe and effective.
Toe nail infection requires prolonged treatment to prevent recurrence.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
