Penlac Nail Lacquer is a fungus treatment that contains the active ingredient Ciclopirox, an antifungal agent that aids in treating toenail fungus and fungal nail infections. It's a topical solution that is applied directly to the affected area (i.e. the nails and the skin right around the nails).
Researchers believe Ciclopirox topical solution most likely reduces or eliminates nail fungus by inhibiting the growth and reproduction of the fungus at a cellular level.
While Ciclopirox may help manage fungal infections of the nails, the effects aren't always immediate. It may take six months or more for the condition to noticeably improve.
People dealing with fungal infections of the toes or nails-which may include a range of symptoms such as discoloration, splitting, or pain in the nails-may be prescribed Penlac Nail Lacquer. The lacquer is also sometimes prescribed for other purposes as determined by a medical professional.
As noted above, Penlac Nail Lacquer is used for the treatment of fungal infections of the fingernails and toenails, which are often accompanied by discoloration, splitting, and/or pain in the nails. These infections may stem from several causes.
One of the most common causes of fungal infection is onychomycosis, which may result from several different types of fungi. Onychomycosis can take several forms, but it almost always results in discoloration, deformation (which may cause damage to the surrounding tissues), and/or thickening of the nails. Additionally, people with onychomycosis or another fungal nail infection may suffer psychologically because of self-consciousness about their condition.
