  OK, so i just got back from the podiatrist with my 2 year old daughter.. She has had a problem with her 2 big toes for a while now, they are yellow, very thick  and brittle..So the doc Say's she has a fungus..Very uncommon for a 2 year old..And cannot put her on medication because she's too small..He gave a cream to try... But he said probably won't work...What the hell?? Has anybody else ever had this problem with there kids??? And what did they do?? Thanks girls!!!

I don't know how they get it because my niece is very clean too but the medication they gave my sister didn't work and that's when somebody else told her to use the vapor rub..

my two youngest got a toenail fungus.  They went to a birthday party at one of those places with the moonwalks and stuff, they kept their socks on but it didnt help.  NOTHING helped we just kept it clean and it finally went away.  Its very uncomfortable for them I am so sorry she has to go through that.
