How Long Will It Take?

Hi again,
I am using Amoresse Thymol for my fingernail infection. Can anyone give me an idea as to how long it might take before I will be able to know whether or not it is working to cure this horrid thing?

I realize the nail(s) have to grow out completely to be rid of it, but I am desperate for some sort of positive sign so I at least know I am on the right track.

Thanks.

Hello snowboarder,

I would say several weeks, perhaps in the ballpark of six weeks you should see signs of whether the treatment is working or not. If the lower part of your nail plate looks healthy and the infection hasn't spread anymore, I would say the treatment is working. Something else you could try is take a picture of your fingernail once a week and compare the pictures to see if your fingernail is improving.

Hi Flamesabers,


I so appreciate your reply. What a wonderful idea about taking pictures to compare! I had never thought of that.
