Q: I have been trying to get rid of a fungal infection in my toenail for months. I’ve tried over-the-counter products without success. Is there any other topical option?
A: Fungal infections affecting the nails can be a challenge! Other than ensuring you keep the affected nail clean and dry, there is a compounded topical option that we have had very positive feedback on. The anti-fungal agent, itraconazole is delivered in a base of ibuprofen and DMSO and is applied twice daily. With diligent use, this prescription nail laquerhas helped many of our patients clear up their pesky fungal nail infections for good.
