Fungal toenail infections are very common and unfortunatly quite complicated to treat. The best results will be from a course of anti-fungal medication which will need prescription from a doctor. Sporanox and Lamisil are two examples of these tablets. Both are quite expensive but will give the best chance of fixing the problem. The next product I recommend which is available without prescription from a pharmacy is Loceryl which is a clear anti-fungal nail varnish. It is simple to use and only needs to be applied once weekly. Removing the nail is an option but there is no garuantee that the new nail will not also be infected. My advice would be to go to a podiatrist in your area and they will help you with the best possible course of action.
Ask the podiatrist to have a look at the wart as well. They can be burnt of with liquid nitrogen which can give excellent results.
