I have high health anxiety and would like some advice

Customer Question

Hi, I have high health anxiety and would like some advice please. I have had a toenail that I have been treating for a fungus with Nailene for a few months but about a month ago it started feeling itchy and red. I was given antibiotics which seem to help but it’s now again itchy and red. I do have Magnesium Suplate which I’m not sure would help it? Thankyou

Magnesium sulfate may not help. You may apply Neosporin cream.

You may need a course of antibiotics also so contact your primary care physician or go to an urgent care/walk-in clinic.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need more information.
