 What is the best treatment for a fungus infection in the UK?

I have had a fungal toe nail problem for as long as i can remember and its getting no better, its on two toes on each foot and it is really disgusting! What are the best treatments in the UK for it without seeing the doctor?

The 2 most useful preparations are probably Loceryl lacquer, which has the advantage of being topical and thus having no systemic side effects and Lamasil tablets, which have a small risk of liver toxicity. Loceryl is available over the counter BUT a 3 month supply costs up to £50. if you were able to buy Lamisil tablets, a 2 month supply is about £100. it might be worth going to your GP and getting a prescription! Unfortunately simple anti-fungal creams do not work on nail infections.

fucidin cream from chemist but i think its a prescription drug…. see doctor as the new stuff "curanail" id about 20 quid and can take upto 12 months… so cheaper to see doc

(eeeuuggghhhhh!!!!…. and wash an dry feet properly)

ask pharmacist,new treatments all the time

Onychomycosis is fungal infection of the nail plate, nail bed, or both. Nail fungus can be difficult to treat, and repeated infections are common. Over-the-counter antifungal nail creams and ointments are available, but they aren't very effective. to limit relapse, the patient should trim nails short, dry feet after bathing, wear absorbent socks, and use antifungal foot powder. Old shoes may harbor a high density of spores and, if possible, should not be worn.
Tinea pedis (athlete's foot) is a dermatophyte infection of the feet. Athlete's foot is an infection of the feet caused by fungus. the medical term is tinea pedis. Athlete's foot may last for a short or long time and may come back after treatment.
