I have a nail on my left index finger which is brittle and breaks easily.I've been told that this is nail fungus.The treatment to set it right seems to be taking long.Can my dear friends and fellow mylotters who have knowledge about this condition please pass on information of as to how best to rid me of this problem?All suggestions are deeply valued.

unless it's growing funny or has yuck under the nail,that sounds more like a deficiency of vitamins to me.try taking suppliments,particularily biotin. my nails rarely split now since i've been taking it.
