There are many different types of nail fungus treatment. Some are only available through a doctor, while others are available from the local drug store or online.
The effectiveness of some nail fungus treatments will depend on the type of infection and or how badly affected the patient is. Some sufferers with additional conditions such as diabetes or those with an immune compromising illness may suffer complications from the infection and require a more radical treatment such as surgery.
Left untreated fungal nail infections can also result in bacterial infections, which may need additional treatment such as antibiotics. The fungal infections and the bacterial infection can also spread to other toes, making the problem even worse.
Your doctor will be able to offer you many treatments, creams, lotions, pills. Some of which can be expensive and because of the cost, prohibitive for some patients. Your MD may prescribe an oral treatment such as Sporanox an anti- fungal pill combined with a cream or lotion if the infection is severe, although many doctors are reluctant to use such medications as they can have side effects in for some people which need to be very closely monitored.

Pricing is going to vary from affordable to very expensive, and it could cost a lot of money and time trying to find the right product that works for you.
