How to quickly remove fungal infection? Yellowish, thick and brittle toe nails. Advised terbiforce.

Hi, my toe nails have become yellowish, very thick and brittle. Also one of the toenails feels slightly separated from the skin. I consulted a dermatologist and he has recommended terbiforce for next 15 days. While am absolutely clear I don t want any removal of nails, I am also concerned about the speed of getting rid of the fungal infection . I have two questions : Does terbiforce has any side effects ? Secondly are there any othe options to treat the fungal infection early and with some ointments rather than terbiforce. .

Hi by your description it is clearly indicates that ur suffering from onychomycosis.yes terbiforce can be used for treatment but i do not think only 15 days course will treat it.terbiforce should be used for atleast for 8 weeks to get treated .they are very few side effects with terbiforce mainly liver toxicity and maculopapular rash.the fastest treatment is by using candiforce 200mg for one week each month for two months can cure it
