new prescription "nail polish" called Penlac
Now there's a new prescription "nail polish" called Penlac...for fingernail and toenail fungal infections.
It contains ciclopirox...the same antifungal in Loprox. But patients brush Penlac on their nails like a nail polish.
Penlac will be promoted as an alternative to oral antifungals because it costs less and doesn't cause systemic effects.
