 baking soda ~ ~ Topical antifungals Until recently, topical therapy alone was in general not useful for the treatment of onychomycosis. However, ciclopirox solution 8%, an innovative topical nail lacquer, has been recently approved for the treatment of mild to moderate onychomycosis [85]. Recent studies have shown successful cure rates when using this agent alone [941, 942, 946]. The solution is applied daily covering the entire nail plate and approximately 5 mm of surrounding skin for 12 months. Overall, however, this approach is not nearly as effective as systemic therapy with the above-mentioned agents. ~ The use of topical agents should be limited to cases involving less than half of the distal nail plate or for patients unable to tolerate systemic treatment. Agents include amorolfine (approved in other countries), ciclopirox olamine 8% nail lacquer solution, sodium pyrithione, bifonazole/urea (available outside the United States), propylene glycol-urea-lactic acid, the imidazoles, and the allylamines.

Ciclopirox (Penlac) - Apply evenly over entire nail plate and 5 mm of surrounding skin qhs or 8h before washing; if possible, apply to nail bed, hyponychium, and undersurface of nail plate when free of nail bed; do not remove product on daily basis; apply daily over previous coat and remove with alcohol q7d; repeat cycle throughout duration of therapy.
