Amorolfine 5% nail lacquer is now available to all users of the PrescQIPP site. As some of you will be aware, since changing to a subscription based model, our bulletins and toolkits are only available to paid subscibers in the first instance for 4 months. This period has now passed for this bulletin and we are pleased to make you all aware that it can now be accessed by anyone via the site.
This bulletin from the PrescQIPP DROP-List and focuses on topical antifungal nail treatment, i.e. amorolfine 5% nail lacquer (Loceryl®, Curanail®, Omicur®), tioconazole 28% cutaneous solution (Trosyl®) and salicylic acid, tannic acid and boric acid paint (Phytex®) which are low priority treatments. Self-care may be appropriate for the majority of asymptomatic patients with fungal infection of the nails. If treatment is deemed necessary, a systemic antifungal is more effective than topical therapy.
