  • Ciclopirox

    Hello,

    I have been prescribed ciclopirox lacquer 8% for a fungal infection in my toenails. My baby is 8 months old, is this safe to use? I’m concerned about the length of time that I may need to apply it daily (indefinitely until the toenails grow out clear).

    I’m also wondering if you have any input about tea tree oil as a natural alternative.

    Thank you!

    Lip:

    Ciclopirox is a broad-spectrum antifungal and is active in numerous species including tinea, Candida albicans, and trichophyton rubrum. An average of 1.3% ciclopirox is absorbed when applied topically although only 0.01% of the dose is found in the urine. Topical application produces minimal systemic absorption; it is unlikely that topical use would expose the nursing infant to significant risks.

    I don't think it will have any effect on your 8 month old infant.
