Suffering from toenail fungus?  It’s a tough problem to treat and cure.  If you catch it early enough, you can sometimes clear it.  Most over-the-counter topical agents do not work and more importantly are not studied or FDA approved.  There are currently three approved prescription topical agents:

  1. ciclopirox
  2. Jublia
  3. Keradyn

Oral agents, such as terbinfine  (Lamisil) are more effective in the treatment of more severe cases of fungal infections of the toenail.  Although it is commonly thought to cause liver problems, the truth is it’s a safe medication and is used frequently for the treatment of toenail fungus.  It is now generic and covered by most insurance plans.

Here’s an example of a patient treated recently in my office where a young female was able to resolve her toenail fungus with the use of Jublia.  This is after almost 6 months of treatment.  There are still mild changes to the nail plate which are superficial and will grow out and resolve.

This article talks about it…
