I've had nail fungus since 2013. It started on my big toe and was minor with a change in the texture of the nail and white discolouration. I went to the docs to get it checked out and they took nail scrapings. The test for nail fungus was negative. The nail fungus then spread to a second toenail, and (gross) my thumbnail.
After numerous trips to the doctor, I have tried:
- Whatever natural remedy I can find on the internet, vick's vapour rub, tea tree oil, etc.
- Nail scraping kits such as Canespro, fungal nail treatment pens (a variety of brands), nail lacquer with amolorfine (I think that's how you spell it)
I know there is the option of oral antifungal meds but doctors seem extremely hesitant to prescribe it because of the side effects.As trivial as it is, the nail fungus really gets me down at times. I would love to be able to grow to paint and grow out my healthy nails but whenever I see them grow, I keep them short and unpainted so any new fungus growth is clearly visible. I'm only twenty and I really hope this doesn't mean I'll have a lifetime of hiding my toenails in closed toe shoes and tucking my thumb in when interacting with customers in my job
