  • Thanks for this awesome slide showcase! Great information about toenail fungus laser treatment. I was doing some other research about laser treatment for toenail fungus and came across this blog at http://www.beauchampfootcare.com/treatment/toenail-fungus-laser-treatment. A think laser treatment is the best way to go but if someone didn't have the money to pay for this treatment what would you recommend as an alternative?
