Topical anti-fungal medication is one means to treat fungus infections of nails as well as skin. Most doctors who treat foot fungus will tell you that many people who present to their office's with nail fungus also have skin fungus and that is how the nails got infected.
The nice thing about topical medication is that it will help both nail and skin infections. Additionally topical medication is safe and inexpensive. If it is going to work, you do have to apply it religiously and not get lazy about it. Along with brushing your teeth, applying the Clotrimazoil particularly to the nails, just becomes part of your daily routine.
Clotrimazoil is a relatively new item to the anti-fungal market and it appears to include additional ingredients which make it superior to the products already out there. The active anti-fungal ingredient, Clotrimazole 1%, however, has been around for quite a while and is a proven anti-fungal medication.
The key to success in fighting nail fungus is a medication that can penetrate the outer layer of nail and soak down under the nail to kill fungus where it resides. Clotrimazoil is a rich oil based product and unlike other similar medications which are water or alcohol based, oil based products are able to penetrate nail, since the make up of nail is protein and fat.
The other key to success in fighting nail fungus is being able to keep the surrounding skin fungus free as well, so that the nail does not get re-infected. Clotrimazoil does that too.
Oral anti-fungal medication and laser are the only two other options available for the treatment of nail fungus. Many people do not want to take the oral medication for the potential side effects. Others cannot take the oral medication because it complicates some of their present medication. Laser surgery is not covered by insurance and for many it is too expensive.
So, if you suffer from unsightly nails and have athletes foot, why not consider Clotrimazoil?
IMPORTANT you should only use this medication on confirmed cases of nail fungus. If you are not sure your nails have fungus (and may actually be something else), consultation with your doctor is advised.

I've been doing some aggressive research lately (it's how I found your incredible website) and realize now that my symptoms are not consistant with the diagnosis.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
