My doctor put me on Diflucan for a toe nail fungus.Has anyone ever heard of this before? I've already had all ten toe nails cut out three times and I can't face that again or having the nails removed.My nails are hard and curl into my toes.

Hi Missy,

Based on my research, Diflucan (Fluconazole) is primarily used to treat Vaginal yeast infections and has been approved by the FDA for that purpose. However, it is sometime prescribed as a toe nail fungus medicine when the toe nail fungus is a mild case, or if the toe nail fungus infection looks to be yeast generated. I have heard of people getting relief from toe nail fungus while using Diflucan, so I hope it works well for you too.

Hi Jenna,thank you! When I asked the pharmacist,he just shook his head and asked me if I was sure my doctor understood where the fungus is at.He had me on Lamasil but the side effects were brutal so he took me off of it.I sure hopes this does work.I'm wondering if the ingrown nails will be right again. I've had them cut out three times and I just cannot face that again.He wanted to remove the one's on my big toes and I wouldn't let him.Until someone has those needles inserted into the tips of their toes,they just can't understand just how painful it is.It was so bad the first time I blacked out.I live with chronic nerve pain,so that's why I can't go through with that again.
Thank you again for letting me know.My doctor said it would take several weeks to clear up the fungus.I've had it for years.He's the first doctor who has tried to clear it up.So here's hoping it all ends soon.

Missy
