Penlac Nail Lacquer
Ciclopirox Nail Fungus Medication
Penlac is billed as the only FDA approved topical treatment for nail fungus. unlike some other prescription only medication Penlac is not taken internally but more of a brush on solution.
Penlac is aimed at mild to moderate cases of toenail and fingernail fungus infection. In its marketing material the advertsing people take a side swipe at some of its competitors by revealing that Penlac is more of a targeted solution by treateing the problem area rather than the whole body. Although this is true for this reason Penlac is probably the least effective of the prescribed nail fungus medications.
How Does Penlac Work
Penlac Nail Lacquer looks not unlike a bottle of nail varnish - a screw of lid with brush attached is effective for applying the lacquer to the infected area.
Who Should Not Apply Penlac Nail Lacquer
As with most prescription only drugs there are patient groups who should not use the medication. A physician should review a patients medical history completely before prescribing. Anyone with diabetes or a immune system weakness should not consider using Penlac. Similarily anyone uses a steroid inhaler (asthmatics) may not be able to use Penlac.
Side Effects Of Penlac
