The problem with fungal nail infections is that it some time to get better. How long have been on the nail paint treatment? You may need to continue this treatment for three to six months.
Tablets should be more effective than the nail pain, but as you said the price if pretty rough. If you are looking for something cheaper then you may ask your doc to prescribe Microcidal (or it's generic called Fulcin) but this may be less effective than some of the more expensive tablets (e.g. Lamisil). For fungal toenail infection, griseofulvin (the ingredient of microcidal) is used to prevent the fungus from spreading while the new toenail grows out, a process that can take at least a year.
