My husband has what I think is a toenail fungus on one of his big toes....Characterized by thickening of the nail plate (at the end), some minor yellowing, and skin like material flaking off under the nail near the front where you cut the nail. It still seems strong and isn't at risk of falling off or anything...Not even close actually. If I had to guess, I'd say the end 1/3 to 1/4 is infected.
We've tried tea oil and Vicks....Both for about 6 months or so. We've seen some improvement, but nothing worth bragging over. It seems that when he goes on antibiotics, it gets worse, but then improves after a while with these home remedies. Is this normal or just coincidence?
Lastly, is Lamisil safe and recommended or is another method preferred? He'd love to get rid of it and have healthy nails, but not sure what to do. Also, am I at risk for sharing a shower and sleeping in the same bed? He's had it for several years now, and so far I've not caught it. How does one catch it to start with?
Thanks in advance for assistance with this.
