Ciclopirox (Penlac) is an antifungal used to treat onychomycosis,a type of nail fungus.?
the direction say to apply the lacquer to each nail daily. will the ciclopirox have a local or system effect? why?
Asked by Thersa Sostre 4 months ago.
After you apply the lacquer to your skin, the ciclopirox will penetrate through the epidermis (outer layer of your skin, made up in most areas of the body of 5 layers) into the dermis. Even under occlusion (which increases absorption), less than 1.5% of the ciclopirox is absorbed into the systemic circulation. Ciclopirox has a short half-life (1.7 hours), so no systemic accumulation occurs and therefore no systemic effect will occur. To answer your question in a more succinct manner - there is only a small amount of absorption into the systemic circulation (<1.5%) due to the protective function of the skin and the properties of the drug.

The doctor subscribed me Ciclopirox Nail Lacquer because i have a nail fungus. He told me to apply it on all 10 nails on the hands. I used to cut the nails on my hands & feet with the same nail clipper and i'm pretty sure that i have the fungus on one of my nails at my feet. Should i apply the Nail Lacquer on all nails at my feet just to be sure or just on the one that seems to have the problem? Answered by Amal Corrales 4 months ago.
It is possible it is spreading, and just the way you think with the clippers. I'd say yes, put it on that toe and perhaps the ones beside that one too. Try to do some of the prevention methods listed on the site below to help stop the spread. Answered by Lauran Brunscheen 4 months ago.

Could loprox (ciclopirox olamine) be used to treat balanitis?
i have a case of balanitis on the tip of my penis, and under my foreskin, and i have this antifungal creme i fouund in my medicine cabinet, called loprox 1%. its not expired. could i possibly use this to treat my ailment?
Asked by Bethel Sifford 4 months ago.
It would depencd on the cause, an antifungal is literally that, antifungal, not antibacterial or anti allergy. If you are sure you have a fungal infection Loprox is ok, but it can cause itching and burning. It would be wiser to ask your doctor to diagnose the cause of your balinitis and give you the appropriate treatment. Answered by Merle Bruestle 4 months ago.
Are there any foot creams that are really close to the prescription cream Ciclopirox?
Work outside in rubber boots constantly in all seasons. Every summer feet itch and break out and peel.
Asked by Cherish Kerce 4 months ago.
If the Dr. prescribe that for you it means that you already have an infection. You need to treat the infection, and then work on preventing it from happening again. There are a variety of ways that you could try to prevent it, from changing socks during the day, to using foot powders, (along with changing socks if you're able to); just taking your boots off as often as you can. Also, the infection most likely resides within your boots, so without treating the source of the problem you'll never really get rid of it. Try spraying some regular lysol in them after work and letting them sit for a few hours. And on your days off set them outside in the warm sun so that the sun actually can hit the inside of them, and that'll really help kill those little fungi. As for something that is really close to the cream, there is nothing over the counter that is close to it, you could try Lotrimin A/F; or ask your local Pharmacist they would know for sure.

A product called Pinetarsol is great for any type of skin condition, especially dermatitis or eczema. It comes in a liquid for use in the bath and a gel that can be rubbed in on a daily basis.

Hi, you can try one of the natural treatments from the Internet - some of them do actually work. For my seb derm. on scalp I use herbal cream by Champori quite successfully. It takes just a couple of weeks to clear the spots and they stay clear for months on end. Try it: champori is available without prescription and comes with money back guarantee so if it doesn't work for you - it's free. Yoko Answered by Stan Maras 4 months ago.

I just found ciclopirox gel and solution that I had been prescribed about 4 years ago for nail fungus. The problem resolved, and now I'm starting to see early signs of the nail fungus reappearing. I just found the left over meds I have, and I know they're well past their expiration date, but I was wondering from a pharmacological standpoint if they've completely lost efficacy, and if it would be safe to even try using it. I plan on calling my doctor this week to refill the script, but in the meantime, I was just curious to know if it would be even worth using it. Thanks! Answered by Bev Kappes 4 months ago.
I don't recommend using anything 6 months beyond the expiration date. It won't be completely ineffective but its potency will be comprimised. Answered by Lacresha Arterberry 4 months ago.
