The only option that you can vary, the dependant variable, is how much to pay. The homemade remedies are generally cheaper. All you need to do is to have a generous buy of vinegar for your kitchen. After you have had your meal, then you can make a solution and soak your toes in it.
How long it takes: This of course is dependent on how much pain or how ugly the nail fungus has affected your toenail. The faster the effect of the remedy, the greater would be potency and the cost. Laser treatment is known for bringing relief within a week or so. The homemade remedies can take little longer.
The type of fungal infection: some fungus types are so severe that they need an equally potent treatment. The severity of the infection: In an advanced infection, you may need a surgery to remove the toe that is affected to protect the others and the feet.
