A yeast infection of the nailbed can take very long to recover and I therefore, suggest that you consult your doctor for medication to treat the yeast infection adequately.

My niece works at a nail salon and she told me to use a pure tea tree oil, is this a good idea

I used to get these alot, as I get gel extns.

Go to a nail place and they will treat it. Its the only think that will help... Dont clean it using other nails as it will spread!
