For about three months, I have been using Hydrocortizone (the 1% creams you can get just about anywhere) on my toenail. Every morning when I get out of the shower, I put a thick coating of it on my toenail, making sure to get it underneath and all around the edges. I also repeat this process after dinner, so the cream has time to soak into the nail and skin before bed. While perhaps not as quick as other treatments, it is very cheap, and the nail has grown out looking normal rather than yellow and thick. I don't know if anyone else has tried this, but it worked for me. The fungus cleared up after about six weeks, and now I'm just doing maintenance on it so that I'm sure it's gone. I hope this helps!

Hydrocortisone is a steroid which suppresses the immune system and is therefore in my opinion not ideal in using for skin/nail infections as the immune system fights these infections. Hydrocortisone is indicated for things like dermatitis and eczema..

That should make it worse! Why I got the problem is from prednisone use (same as cortisol crap) People please don't use this for fungus it WILL make worse.
