Try over-the-counter antifungal nail creams and ointments.
Several products are available. If you notice white markings on
the surface of the nail, file them off, soak your nails in water, dry
them, and apply the medicated cream or lotion.
If you have athlete's foot as well as nail fungus, treat the
athlete's foot with medicated powders or sprays and keep your
feet clean and dry.
Trim and thin the nails. This helps reduce pain by reducing
pressure on the nails. Also, if you do this before applying an
antifungal, the drug can reach deeper layers of the nail.
Before trimming or using a nail file to thin thick nails, soften
them. You can do this with the following nightly routine: Apply
urea cream to affected nails, cover them with a bandage, and
wash off the urea with soap and water in the morning. Repeat
until the nails soften. Protect the skin around your nails with
petroleum jelly.
If you have a condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet
and you can't trim your nails, see a health care provider regularly
to have your nails trimmed...consult dermatologist they will help you
