Use Lamisil 250 mg orally to prevent toenail fungus from recurring. This medicine requires prior authorization, thereby, the doctor has to call the insurance carrier for approval/authorization and then call the pharmacy with the authorization number.

All disease begins in the gut. We come in contact with all kinds of pathogens everyday of life but if you are healthy you will never get an infection in the 1st place. Look up leaky gut syndrome and candida overgrowth in your gut microbiome. Once your gut is with an imbalance or overgrowth of the bad stuff, including candida, it can surface in many ways on the body, just about anywhere, including a toenail fungus infection.
