Does Athlete's Foot Medication Work to Treat Fungal Toenails?

"Can I used athletes foot medication on my fungus toenails? Medications for athlete’s foot are not strong enough to penetrate the nail plate. These anti-fungal creams and ointments only work on layers of skin. One would also want to make sure it is a fungus. A yeast, mold, psoriatic or traumatic nail may look like a fungal nail and require a different treatment. It is best to use a topical anti-fungal medication specifically for fungal nails to obtain the best result. If you think you have fungus toenails, schedule an appointment to receive the proper diagnosis and treatment."
