These days, there seems to be a drug for everything. These “quick fixes” can be enticing, especially when compared to “lovingly” applying a topical solution to each yellowed, crusty toenail… several times a day, every single day, for months on end.

So how does the body know which types to fight and which to allow? The matter becomes further complicated when you throw a blanket antifungal into the mix.
