Soft toenail... not fungus!!

My pinky toenail on my right foot is extremely soft. I went to the doctor to have it checked out because I was terrified it was nail fungus. Luckily it isn't (even know I can almost bet someone will say it is lol) I was wondering if anyone knew anything I could use to help harden the nail? I found out I am anemic, so I am taking medication for that, but the doctor told me it won't improve the nail strength anytime soon! I am looking for a quicker fix!

  • I am anemic and have soft nails also - I keep a coat of clear hardener on them at all times.

  • I have a friend who uses tea tree oil on her nails and swears it works wonders! Personally, I have used glucosamine and chondroitin supplements (can be found together) to strengthen my nails.
