Can antifungal medications help in the management of onychomycosis?

Hello doctor,

My uncle is 57 years old. A few days ago, he noticed certain symptoms and changes in his skin and nails that led him to believe that a fungal infection might be the cause. I am seeking your professional guidance and expertise in addressing this matter. The suspected fungal infection seems to be localized in his toenails and the skin between his toes. What are the available treatment options for fungal infections, both over-the-counter and prescription medications, and which ones do you believe would be the most effective in his case? Additionally, are there any preventive measures or lifestyle changes he should consider to reduce the risk of future fungal infections?

Thank you.
