Fungus on toe nail

I have a fungus on two of my toe nails and my Dr. doesn't want to give me any prescription meds because of the chance of permanent liver damage. I heard something about a new laser treatment. Does anyone know anything about it and who does it, a dermatologist or foot doctor?

Have you tried the Vick's home remedy? Just put Vick's on them every morning and night. Lots of people swear it works.

Cool Re: Fungus on toe nail

I've heard the same thing...Vick's Vapor Rub. If not that, WD 40, that fixes everything. LOL

Seriously tho...I've been reading for years about Vicks. I have not tried it myself asI'm lucky not to have nail fungus.. Good luck
