DMSO is a pharmaceutical-grade ingredient that has long been used in compounding pharmacies when they are mixing up a formulation for toenail fungus.
The DMSO itself doesn’t kill the fungus, but since it is a driving agent that helps other ingredients permeate through tough substances like nails, it can help be the special ingredient that finally takes care of a stubborn toenail fungus.
DMSO is normally paired with an antifungal agent like fluconazole, and while fluconazole can often be found over the counter in creams, without the addition of DMSO it is unlikely to get to where it needs to go to clear a fungus.
Think of DMSO like the key that opens the door to the fungus to allow the medications in.
Persistence is key
No matter what you are using to treat your toenail fungus, having lots of patience is key.
Toenails grow very slowly, sometimes taking a year or more to fully grow out a portion of the affected nail from the bottom near the nail bed.
If your toenail fungus changed the color or texture of your nail, it may stay that way the entire time the nail is growing out, even if the fungus is now under control and being treated.
You will know you are on the right track, however, if the new nail which is growing in looks normal and healthy.
Be persistent with treatment and apply your medication as directed to the nails, sometimes as often as twice daily.
Even if the nail is looking better, you should continue treatment for as long as the doctor advises to make sure the fungus does not return because it was not fully eradicated.
Sometimes, a difficult toenail fungus may need to be treated for a year or more to fully clear it.
