Fungal toe nail infection - good natural ointments?

Hi,

I just wanted to ask if anyone has tried a good toe nail anti fungal ointment. A couple of nails of my left foot have not be looking great since the summer and I was told that they have a nail infection. I tried the Dr Scholl treatment for a month but I didn't notice any difference. I've been looking on Amazon and there are many, one that looks interesting is Yoffee Clear. It appears to be more natural. Has anyone tried the natural anti fungal ointments?

Thanks!
Lara.

Thank you for asking at ehealthforum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. There are Many over the counter antifungal ointment which will work but you should know that medicines help slightly. main influence will be feet hygiene and avoiding sweating and regularly changing shoes and socks . Should be worn No more than 8 hours a day. Good podiatric care can spare all these troubles. Rest any antifungal you like will fix the issue.


I hope it helps.Please take good car of yourself and do as directed.I would advise to stay in touch with your health care provider as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor where a complete evaluation occurs. I will be here if you need me or have any more questions to ask, i would love to answer.

May the odds be ever in your favour.

Take care
