Medicinal treatment of nail fungus (onychomycosis)

When medicinal treatment of nail fungus, local external ointments (creams, solutions, varnishes) and oral medications (tablets, capsules) are used. But even with the use of new drugs, the disease is often repeated or difficult to treat.

Ointments for topical application to the nails and surrounding skin are recommended only if the damage to the nail plate is less than half or the patient with onychomycosis can not take antifungal medicines. Medicines for topical use only (for example, terbinafine (Lamisil), naphthyfine (Exoderyl), ketoconazole (Nizoralis), varnish Loceril, etc.) usually do not cure the nail fungus, since they do not penetrate deeply into the nail plate. These drugs can be used as an auxiliary method of treatment and combined with oral antifungal drugs.

Oral antifungal medications (eg terbinafine, itraconazole, ketoconazole) are more effective, but have many side effects. In the treatment of nail fungus, medications are taken within 2 months, with the fungus of the nails of the feet - for 3 months or more. These medications are not recommended for patients with liver disease or heart failure. Before taking antifungal drugs, it is recommended to do a blood test and determine the condition of the liver.

Medication treatment of nail fungus can be combined with other methods of treatment: surgical removal of nail plates, laser.
