step 1
Clean Nails
Important: Before cleaning feet and nails be sure to scrub clean your hands and any surface that will come in contact with your nails during this process.



Prepare Nails

CUT NAILS: Before going forward, you should prepare your nails. First, cut all infected nails as low as possible without causing pain.

FILE NAILS: Use a nail file to work away the area on the top, sides, and front of your nails.

CAUTION: Wash your hands and tools between preparing each nail to avoid cross-contamination.

Nail fungus grows under the nail and within the nail bed. That means it’s important to remove as much excess nail as possible before  treatment.



Morning Wash

Run a gentle stream of warm water across your infected nail(s). Proceed to wash with soap.

Evening Wash

Run a gentle stream of warm water across your infected nail(s). Proceed to wash with soap.

This step prepares your skin for washing. Warm water softens and loosens the skin and nails so they can be thoroughly cleaned.

step 1
Apply Treatment



Prepare Area

Using a clean towel, dry the infected area completely. Push hard into the areas around your nails to ensure that no moisture is trapped. Any lingering moisture can exacerbate your fungal infection.

It is best for nails to be completely dry before applying treatment



Apply Treatment to Nail Tops

Using a soft brush, carefully apply a liberal amount of a treatment containing FDA approved anti-fungal for nail fungus to the tops of infected nails. Make sure to use short, soft, even brush stroke sand make sure the treatment is distributed evenly across the entire nail. 

Short soft brush strokes are best because hard strokes can cause nail breakage or damage.




On days in which you have cut or filed your nails, be sure to apply a small amount of treatment to all nails, even those unaffected by nail fungus.

Even when you clean your hands, toe nail clipper, files, and other tools between each nail, there is a chance that fungus can cross-contaminate previously unaffected nails. Applying a small amount of treatment to all your nails can reduce your risk of developing nail fungus in unaffected nails.

step 1
Treatment Maintenance




Allow treatment time to dry completely.

Ensure full absorption of treatment. Any wetness can promote fungus.



Wear appropriate footwear.  Sandals without socks are optimal. If you wear closed toe shoes, make sure they are loose and do not compress your foot.  Always wear moisture wicking socks, especially for strenuous athletic activity or whenever your feet might sweat.

Any excess moisture or sweat can provide a potent breeding ground for nail fungus. Moisture wicking socks, open toed shoes or sandals, and breathable mesh sneakers are all good footwear options.



Prepare Nails

Be sure to change your socks every day, and rotate your footwear.

Having clean socks and fresh footwear can prevent the proliferation of fungal spores and reduces the opportunity for the fungal infection to spread or reinfect your nails.



This guide promotes the use of topical treatments for curing your nail fungus and does not address the efficacy of oral or alternative nail fungus treatments. If you do not find topical treatments to be effective, we recommend that you consult a doctor. Even if you’ve decided to use oral medications for toenail fungus, we recommend using a topical treatment in addition to the oral.
