Is naftin (naftifine) cream effective against nail fungus?

Is naftin (naftifine) cream effective against nail fungus?

No: Most topicals do not work well on nail fungus. There are a few that are specifically for nail fungus, but even these don't work as often as anyone would like. If you try a topical, it is important to use as often as suggested and keep the nail trimmed as short and thin as possible to give the medicine a chance to work.

Itchy scrotum: Did the dermatologist do a skin scraping or a biopsy? Maybe you need a scrotal ultrasound. And it looks like you have an IgA deficiency so are they making sure it isn't an infection?

Big toenails removed. Dr prescribed naftin (naftifine) 2% 45g for 8 months on the nail bed. That seems way too long. Box says 2 weeks. Thoughts?

Mycotic nails: Actually 8 months of therapy for a fungus nail involving the great toes is not a long time since it takes about a year for the nail to completely regrow. Topical treatments however have limited benefit. Oral antifungals like Lamisil (terbinafine) have produced better outcomes. Current literature supports pulse dosing over the course of a year. ...Read more

Sometimes they are given charcoal to absorb the drugs and sometimes their stomach is "pumped". They may need to be given medications. ...Read more
