Amorolfine and Loceryl

Toenail fungus: AMOROLFINE I did not see anything about your opinion on Loceryl or Cureanail. It seems much easier as it is only applied once a week & is painted on.

Good find of those meds. I remember the Loceryl one when I was in the UK- sometimes it needs to be applied twice weekly and sometimes up to 12 months. These 2 medications seem to be less prominent in Ontario Canada.

They follow the same technique as any "painted" on treatment in that they need to be painted on, wait a certain time and then paint again. This needs to be done over months.

The ones in Onatrio are Jublia and Penlac:

I think the % concentration of active antifungal is different.

Again, the painted on meds are great because they have so few side effects but they suffer in the length of time you have to apply them. Some patients give up before the recommended time limit, some do not apply correctly and many have more than one nail that has been affected. Which can then increase the amount used. They seem to have a better affect upon mild toenail fungus but they will have a go at heavy toenail fungus nails.

Thanks for the comment!
