After reading about the issue on toe fungus, my husband and I went to 2 different drug stores:Wal-Mart & Walgreen's and neither one of them carries the medication called: Miranel ointment. The Wal-Mart assistant said that there was 4 other people looking for the same medication for toe/foot fungus treatment.Would you happen to know of any other pharmacies to try?

There's always amputation.

Get your Doc to give you prescription strength Lamisil ointment, and keep feet from getting damp.

...or I suppose amputation is an option. Probably less painful.

Dr. Gott's articles in the paper say to use Vicks Vapor Rub on and around the toenail twice a day for about three months. Don't take anything internal. Check the side effects for the oral Lamasil. Not pleasant. Anyway I don't know if that works, but give it a try.

My sister had to have her entire toe nail removed. They don't grow back either. Gross..If you keep the area painted afterwards, it's not noticable though.

best cure for a digit with fungus is to soak it in cider.

I wouldn't want to touch a toe with fungus on it either. I once had somewhat of a foot fetish...not anymore!

lamisil has to be taken for an extended period of time, and has significant side-effects.
If the fungus is underneath the toenail, see a podiatrist. If it is on the skin surface, use and anti-fungal cream plus some vick's and keep the foot dry and exposed to air as much as possible. and use anti-fungal powder inside of your shoes/sneakers. dry them with a hair dryer.
Dr. Moritz in the tool building by Hamot Hospital is a good podiatrist.

(My 16 year oold son plays several sports, so we have some experience dealing with athlete's foot. And as you may know, you don't have to be an athlete to get it.)

Natural remedies are more preferable than oral medications like Lamisil when it comes to treating toenail fungus because they are safer to use. They don't posit any side effect and they are also inexpensive. I suffered from nail fungus before and in order to address it, I settled with natural remedies, specifically tea tree oil and apple cider
vinegar. I also combined them with an all-natural otc liquid treatment called FUNGUSIL. They combination is so potent that it cured my toenail fungus in just a matter of 1 month.
