How can fungal infection on the nails be treated?

I have a fingernail fungus. How can I get rid of this. I am seeing a nutritionist and he is treating it from within with natural vitamins, but I need to do something more. There was a woman on your show that said she cured hers within two weeks. Could tell me what episode that was or link me to it.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

You need to apply Antifungal medicine like Amorolphine nail lacquer once a week or Ciclopirox Olamine nail lacquer daily on the nails.
This will help in curing your fungal infection.

Hope I have answered your query.
