So, how to cure nail fungus? If we are going to use pharmaceuticals, doctors recommend oral treatments such as Itraconazole, Fluconazole or Terminafine. These medicines help us growing a new nail, of course this new nail will be 100% healthy. Then we have to wait for this new nail to fully grow. This treatment takes several months to complete, and it is not the only one. Actually all nail fungus treatments can take up more than a year with the risk of the fungus to reappear.
