toenail fungus

I have had a brownish striped fungus on my pinkie toenail for 2 years.  I can clip the nail way back without pain.  The nail gets thick.  for the last 2 months I have been putting medicated chest rub on it, like Vic's Vapor - only generic.  I've done this daily and my nail is growing out normally with no brownish or thickness.  Is this a cure, or will I need to continue this for years to come to keep it looking normal?
