My 16 month old daughter has developed toe nail fungus on three of her toes. What kinds of treatment works best on a toddler? I have read some things but is says to soak your feet in bleach, vinegar, ect. I know there is no way that my daughter will sit long enough to soak her feet. Please help.

I did speak with her doctor and they advised me to bring her in. Well her doctor didn't know what it was, she even called in another doctor who also didn't know. They said it did not look like nail fungus and it is uncommon for children her age to get that. They both told me to keep an eye on it and if it gets worse then they would refer me to a dermatologist. Really hoping her toe nail grows out and it goes away on its own. I guess only time will tell.

Oh poor baby! I would call her doctor and see what they suggest - they will probably want to see her. I wouldn't try to soak her feet in anything until you spoke with them. Good luck!!
