I tried some science and put hydrogen peroxide on one affected toenail, Vicks on the other. Vicks seemed ineffective. Then again. that toenail seems thicker, like slightly thicker and tougher than a credit card..

I've now used a battery powered pedicure kit with a spinning metal grinding cone attachment. ACCIDENTALLY grinded down to a softer, but SLIGHTLY-tougher-than-skin layer I believe to be the nail bed.

What I suggest:
Use a cotton ball and gauze tape. With the cotton ball saturated in your fungus killer of choice. Use the gauze tape to keep it on as long as possible with as little evaporation as possible.

Socks help keep the area undisturbed. And you can possibly soak the toes of the socks with hydrogen peroxide in case the other toes are affected.

This morning I tried saturating a cotton ball in 3% hydrogen peroxide and taping it to my affected toe nail for 30 minutes. Now my toe nail BURNS like crazy. Did this happen to you when you tried this?

I've found with using topical treatments soaked in a cottonball, that a finger cot rolled over top, keeps the treatment in place comfortably. Works the same as the balloon usage or taping or using a bandaid, but perhaps more easily applied
