My grandmother had terrible toenails, brown thick, brittle, she smeared them periodically with iodine, did not help. Hardly convinced her to start treatment, she said that enough to spread the infection, I do not want to get sick and if she does not start to heal, I will not visit her more. Only after that, they went to the doctor, prescribed an ointment and pills too, I see old age. I ran to the drugstore, bought everything out with my own money, helped her to clean her nails for the first time, explained everything. For a long time, of course, I had to be treated, but now everything is fine. I wish everyone not to start their own health. Marina, Gatchina, Leningrad region
