How to stop people staring at my disgusting fungal toe nail?

I know I have a fungal nail infection and I can't seem to shift it, I will keep trying different things as have already been suggested in other threads, but I just feel so down about it. I wanted to go back to yoga but would have to show my horrible toenail, likewise now its summer it's sandal time, but I'm still paranoid people can see it even if I paint over it - and I like to give my toe nails a break from nail polish from time to time. Anyone got any suggestions of situations they dreaded/avoided and what they did? Thanks - with the whole of summer in front of me I just feel so ashamed...

Honestly, everyone is so wrapped up in themselves they probably won't even notice it

I bet nobody will notice it at all if you paint it, honestly. If it's just for an hour or so for yoga or something, could you pop a (breathable) plaster over it? Nobody would bat an eyelid at that.

Go to your GP and get terbinafine.
