Child has fungus on toe nails, other child also developing, partner had athlete foot. Hereditary, vaccines suppress immunity?

I have a six year old daughter with fungus on every toe nail. She has had it for a year and a half. We have tried several things but have been unsuccessful. No oral meds because do not want liver damage. Also I have an 18 month old and it looks like his big toes have it in the upper corners. This may sound crazy to ask, but my husband was in the military and had athletes foot a lot and had insane amounts of vaccines, so wondering if that can pass to children when born. Could the toxins from the vaccines suppress there immune systems? What do I do! We have good hygiene and eat healthy home grown produce and meat! Try to stay away from processed foods, dyes, and artificial ingredients.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
This disease is contagious not genetic or hereditary.
Treat both the children for the infection. This may take up to 12 weeks of treatment to heal. You have to treat all the affected members.
Consult a good dermatologist to treat this condition called onychomycosis.
This has no relation to ingested food.
I understand your concern.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Do not worry we are there to help you out.
Have a nice day.
