Toenail fungus starts as foot fungus then moves to the toenails. If you only treat the toenails, the foot fungus can keep re-infecting the toenails. This is why most toenail treatments seem to start working but then stop before the fungus is completely treated. I have found that the most effective method of treating toenail fungus consists of two steps:
Step 1: Treat the foot fungus with an antifungal foot serum
Step 2: Treat the toenail fungus with an antifungal toenail treatment
TRUTH: Treating toenail fungus over the counter is most effective if you treat the toenail fungus and the cause of the fungus with two separate topical medications.
