Hi.. get Koh examination of the nail scrapping to rule out fungal infection .. If fungal elements are positive. Then proceed with the antifungal treatment. Which usually will take 6 to 8 months of therapy to it completely cured. Avoid shoes if possible,  and avoid wetting your feet for long time.. hopes this clears your doubt to a certain extent
