"toenail fungus and angular cheilitis"
 
   first off.. i have had a toenail infection. I read the other post about the toenail fungus and my nails seems a little different. and its in 3 toenails. They began only discolored and then its like they rotted themselves out. and i could lift the entire nail up and it wasnt even attached. Well this happened to my entire nail which eventually just came off. and what appears to be a clear nail was already growing under it. and on another toe, the nail did that on only a small section. Maybe i should just wait it out?


And about 2 weeks ago, the corners of my mouths began to get dry and crack. I had angular cheilitis about 2 years ago and i saw a doctor for it, and she prescribed me an anti-fungal cream which just made it worse. Then i tried multi-vitamins because we discovered it was caused by a vitamin b deficiency. And it recently came back which is making me mad. So i bought some vitamins over the counter. but i was just wondering how long do the vitamins take to kick in? Ive been taking them about 4-5 days now, and no signs of any relief on my mouth. Im guessing it will take a bit longer.

   i just read that fungal infections are most common for angular cheilitis but since ive had it before, I guess i just automatically assumed i needed more vitamins.

then again, if it were a fungal infection, i have no health insurance to see a doctor and not sure of medicines that are sold over the counter

but I did want you to know someone is reading your post.. I've dealt with toenail fungus by using tea tree oil on it, full strength. Seems to help.

Regarding the cheilitis and vitamins, I'm guessing that if it's a B deficiency, it may take a while longer than 4 or 5 days.

   You may also just have athlete's foot.
Some nail discoloration can come from that.
Lotramin AF works well if used as directed. You could always try!

Toenail fungus is infectious. So, if you won't address the condition immediately, it can spread to your other nails. I'm not sure if vitamins will help treat your toenail fungus, but it will be better if you try using home remedies first. You can use tea tree oil, oregano oil, or thyme on the infected nails. You can also soak your feet in cider vinegar. My friend also used a topical cream called ad removed, so you might want to try it as well.
