Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Well for finger nail fungus you would need to apply an over the counter antifungal cream like lotrimin or tineacide,you don't need a prescription for that.

Do let me know if you have any queries

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
