Re: Will my toenail ever get better and grow normally?
Except in extremely rare circumstances where you actually damaged the nail matrix (or root), the nail will grow back normally IF you conquer the fungus.
While you should use the anti-fungal cream your podiatrist gave you, you should know that topical applications are completely effective in only a small percentage of cases in controlled clinical tests. Although oral medications such as terbinafine have potential side effects, they are also clinically proven to be more effective than other alternatives.
Good luck and less us know how things progress.
