Onychomycosis/Distal subungual onychomycosis include white or yellow nail discoloration, thickening of the nail, and separation of the nail from the nail bed. Toenails or fingernails may be affected, but it is more common for toenails to be affected. Aging is the most common risk factor for onychomycosis due to diminished blood circulation. The causative pathogens are dermatophytes(Trichophyton rubrum is the most common dermatophyte) & Candida (yeasts). Differential diagnosis:---- nail psoriasis, lichen planus, contact dermatitis. Prevention: To prevent fungal growth, it is advisable to: ※Keep the feet clean and dry, and washing with soap and water and drying thoroughly ※Keeping the nails cut short and wearing shower shoes whenever walking or showering in public places ※Daily changes of shoes, socks, or hosiery are also helpful. ※Excessively tight hose or shoes promote moisture, which in turn, provides a wonderful environment for onychomycotic infections. ※To prevent this, individuals should wear only socks made of synthetic fibers, which can absorb moisture more quickly than those made of cotton or wools. ※Manicure and pedicure tools should be disinfected after each use ※Nail polish should not be applied to nails that are infected. ※Avoid cutting or tearing the skin around the toenails since this may be an entry point for infection. I think Homeopathic medicines do not kill the fungus. It enhances the immunity of the body, so that the body can fight against the fungus and resist it. With regular use, Homeopathic medicines help to restore the nail and prevent recurrent infections. So require constitutionally selected Homeo. Medicine. Though most common medicines are suitable for.....Ant.crud., Silicea, Graph. Acid fluor. Thuja etc.

Thank you sir
