I have fungal infection on my thumb nail. I've tried various types of nail fungal polishes but nothing seems to work
Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No. I moved house years ago and somehow no longer have a doctor. I'm not taking any medications
Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?
Customer: I dont take any medication. Unless you mean the most recent fungal treatment which is called protect air
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: I dont think so. I'm 39 now and have possibly only seen the doctor a few times

I cant remember them all now I'm afraid. The most recent was one called protectair. I bought online

Thanks for the details

You need to apply Lamisil cream over it

It might require about 6 weeks before your nail will become normal

If that does not work then you will need an oral anti-fungal like Terbinafine

Please do let me know if you have any other question

I'm keen to try the lamisil tablets. But they seem to have lived warnings. I just dont think these creatures.s are working for me

It is usually very effective and you should start with Lamisil cream first
