What is the best way to get rid of toenail fungus?

I have this awful toenail fungus, and my doctor is really hesistant to prescribe me anything for it. Are there any at-home remedies that I can use to at least calm it down?What is the best way to get rid of toenail fungus?
I know you don't want to hear this, but I have fungus on my two smallest toes and the doctor said that he'd rather remove the toenails than treat me with lamisil.What is the best way to get rid of toenail fungus?

I really don't know of any at home remedies. I have it, too. I always get it on my left big toe. I've had the nail removed countless times. Then it'll be fine for a couple of years. The last time was about a year ago. That time I went to see a foot specialist. She took the nail off and said she clipped the root or something like that. She said I probably wouldn't get the ingrown nail ever again. She also treated it with sort of acid. So far I'm fine, no more fungus. My regular doctor wouldn't give me anything for it either. He said it takes a long time and can hurt other parts of your body. Good luck!
I had that issue on my baby toes and it cleared itself up over time. My doctor was hesitant as well because treatment takes months and it can cause liver problems. Basically you cure one problem, with the probability of causing another-but more severe-Liver problems. However, I hear lamisil works the best, but you need to be under constant supervision if you take it. It can cause liver problems as well. Unfortunately, sometimes it's better to stick with the minor problem rather than getting something more severe to remedy the less serious one!
hey take zinc, folic acid 2 times a day they kill fungus in the body also put zinc oxide diaper rash ointment desitin on the infected area this will kill the fungus it works every time the zinc and folic acid are needed because its under the toe nail this works.....
