It's not the medicine, it's how you use the medicine that matters
on October 6, 2013
It's kind of embarrassing to admit this type of problems, but I have benefit so much from amazon customer review, so I want to share my experience.
I've tried quite a few different products to cure my big toe nail (80% of it was bad), after more than a year it is finally cured, here is what I did:
1. cut off the infected nail as much as you can; sometime I cut it so deep that blood came out; You have to be able apply medicine directly to the infection which is under toe nail; Try to get the medicine to under the nail, after a few days, it becomes easier to cut off the bad nail;
2. It is a iteration process, you need to constantly clean out and cut away what the medicine appears to have killed; Slowly you would be able to cut away most of the bad nail, and see the new nails slowly grow back.
3. You need to wrap up the toe nail with something after applying medicine; Band-aid can do but expensive for one everyday, I just use medical tape and a folded small piece of paper towel.
I give this product a 3 star because of its package:
1) Not spill safe;
2) The brush is too soft, and carries too much of the liquid, difficult to apply a small amount;
I think there is little difference between different products; it's really how you use them. The challenge is patience and constant care: cut, clean, and apply, everyday for at least a few months.
