He took pills "Exifin" for the treatment of fungus on the big toe. Helped quickly. It took about 3 months to completely get rid of the sore. For comparison, when my father suffered with the same problem, he was prescribed medications that had to be taken for a whole year. Alexander, 28 years old

I bought “Exifin” to my daughter when she discovered a fungus under her breast (there was a strong reddening, burning sensation and a terrible smell). Used a few weeks, covering the night with a gauze bandage. Conveniently, you need to apply only once a day. No unpleasant effects were found when using the ointment. The most important thing that helps quickly, if it were still cheaper, it would be great. Olga Alexandrovna, 52 years old
