Greetings. Nail infection can be prolonged and resistant to certain anti fungals. Please see a qualified dermatologist. The nail fungal infection may need confirmation with nail clippings. Sometimes nail dystrophy due to other causes may mimic fungal infection. If it's a fungal infection for sure, you may need upto six months of treatment. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards
