I may have gotten this fungus I have from my dog, I don't know. It turns very white and one big toenail is beginning to looked distorted. I used oxistat but it made my toenail red but it looked good while using it. I am no longer using it. The other thought I had was that I got a yeast infection from my friend while on vacation we both used the same tub and she had an infection. Right now I am using loprox and it looks better but I believe oxistate did more for the nail. Anyone you know of catch it from a dog's feet stepping on your nails? Do they turn white by any chance? My toenail clippings come back negative but all you have to do is look at them and you can tell right away. Now this has spread to all 10 toes. Thanks, annem

Hi Annem. Perhaps you contracted your toenail fungus from somewhere else, or maybe your nail got injured when your dog accidentally stepped on it. Toenail fungus is contagious and can be acquired from public areas, especially in gyms and shower rooms. If you really are not sure about the condition of your nails, it will be better if you get a second opinion to get the right prescription for your infected nails. If visiting a specialist is not an option for you and you really feel that you have toenail fungus, then you might want to try using an over the counter treatment called ZeroFungus. I tried it myself, and it worked wonders for me.
