    Fingernail Fungus?

    I believe i have fingernail fungus. Thing is everything I have ever read is about the toes or feet. I have this on my fingernails. I started on my thumb and then moved to my other hand. I know have 3 fingers infected. it started out like really white, than the nail has gotten thick and like flaky. It was really bad but I started hitting it with tea tree oil and the white has left a little but the nail still looks ruff. The really white parts are close to the cuticle.

    This has been driving my crazy. I believe i got this because I use to have athletes foot and this are the fingers that I would constantly scratch the area between my toes with when I would get those crazy itches!

    I cant post pics to show you guys or links as it just **** them out but just picture a nail that has gotten white, thick, flakly, slight yellowish and really white weird texture close to the cuticle.

    Hello,

    What you described sounds like the toenail fungus I've dealt with. The most effective remedy I've found is getting a prescription for lamisil. The trouble is, even after the lamisil kills off the fungus, it seems to come back a number of months lately. If you want to try lamisil, your doctor may want to run a blood test first as lamisil can be hard on your liver.

    flamesabers thanks for your reply. I believe that medication is not an option as I have a fatty liver due to my weight. it seems that this point my only help would be laser treatment.
