In Canada I am used to Jublia.The above picture is borrowed with hugs from the Jublia main site.
It is a topical treatment (applies with a brush that is attached to the bottle) directly onto the nail. In the past, topical treatment suffer from the following issues:
At time of writing it seems to have the largest concentration of anti-fungal medication available topically. It is called Efinaconzole and is available in 10% concentration. This, at the present time is the max amount available on prescription.
It works just like all the other topical treatments- apply with the brush that comes attached to the bottle. However it also has one little nifty technique:
This is a great addition. Because as we have seen, medication run off and lack of general penetration of the nail seems to be the main issue with topical medications.
Jublia also has one of the top treatment records. Around 35% of all nails that they tested seemed to have total removal of the toenail fungus. Which seems low, but in the big scheme of things- especially in the toenail fungus world, it is big- and especially for a topical treatment regime.
Not really downsides, but something to consider:
So far it is not a bad topical treatment. And for a medication you dont have to swallow and causes minimal side effects...that cant be bad right?
Here are some other the toenail fungus treatments.
