Tonenail fungus - one more to try

My husband is currently growing out his toenail fungus. I was trying everything on him (vinegar, listerine, vicks, tea tree oil, etc.) and he was getting annoyed, especially with the application. He's not one for diligently applying something to his feet 2x a day, everyday. He tried Lamisil, but the fungus came back after 3 months. Long story short, we tried Hibiclens (an antiseptic antimicrobial skin cleanser), and the nail is growing out very well. Once a day after showering, he washed his feet with this stuff (only a small amount is necessary). When the nail started growing in normally after a few weeks, he knocked it down to 3x week. Seeing that ridgeline move away from the cuticle is a wonderful thing. I found Hibiclens near the hydrocortisone at the big box mart, about $6 for a 4 oz bottle (lasts about a month).
