Not going to happen. The fungus grows in your nail bed down where those well-advertised drops can NEVER reach it. Only a medicine that you take internally for about a year (until nails have grown out all clear) could really get rid of it. But they have nasty liver-damaging potential. Even worse after it is gone the same flaw in your body that let it get going in the first place will bring it back again so you can start all over fighting it.
If it's a bad case the topical treatments may not be able to cure it permanently. No Fun I Know! You should see your doctor and he/she may decide to put you on a pill. I had a mild case, it was caught early and I took the pills for about two months, cleared up fine. The Dr. did tell me though that in most cases it can take 6 months to a year to clear up fully. Everybody reacts to things differently but heads up when I took this about an hour after I could taste the medicine somehow and I didn't like that so I took it before bed, but watch out in case it gives you chronic heartburn. (The disclaimer with the medicine says it can cause temporary loss of taste and some stomach discomfort - they mean diarrhea.)
Putting your feet in a water and vinegar and soaking them every other day for about a week.
try a water/bleach soak. u know, bleach kills everything. it's what they use in medical labs to clean up the gunk.

dont make it too strong. try 1prts bleach to 9prts water.
YOu need prescription medication.Over the counter stuff will not work.Go to the doctor,this type of fungus spreads like crazy!!
From personal experience with a severe case of toe and fingernail fungus (my husband had it for YEARS), we tried everything, finally as a last resort we tried using tea-tree oil and anifungal creme for about 7-10 days and it was gone. The term Paronychia is the doc talk for this condition. The oral meds did not work for long, but applying the tea-tree oil and either triple anti-biotic cream or Antifungal Creme three times a day clearly made the difference. Some researcheres say that yeast such as Candida albicans or bacteria like Pseudomonas or Proteus cause this, but the most common cause is usually staph with Candida as a secondary invader. You should also wash with an Antibacterial soap and soak your feet for about 15 minutes in water and epsom salts with some Tea Tree Oil added, then pat dry and apply the oil to the effected toes and cover with the ointment of your choice.
Six months of oral antifungicide. No topical treatment is going to do it.
go to the doc man and have him cut off your feet
