Topical Ciclopirox Olamine 1%: Revisiting a Unique Antifungal.

Indian Dermatol Online J 2019 Jul-Aug;10(4):481-485

Dermato Venereology (Skin/VD) Center, Sehgal Nursing Home, Panchwati-Delhi, India.

The injudicious use of antifungals, indiscriminate use of corticosteroids for instant relief, persistence of predisposing factors like sweat retention and uncontrolled diabetes, and emerging resistance to antifungals across the globe have rendered the management of an erstwhile simple infection, the superficial cutaneous mycoses highly complicated and tricky. Ciclopirox is an old yet efficacious, versatile, and safe topical antifungal of the hydroxypyridone family. Despite its numerous beneficial properties over the majority of other topical antifungals, it remains underutilized. Read More

Department of Dermatology, University of California , Irvine , CA, USA.

Although labeling changes and market withdrawal have been implemented for oral ketoconazole (KTZ) due to serious adverse effects (AEs), topical KTZ is generally thought to be effective and safe for the treatment of superficial fungal infections. New dermatologic indications for the use of topical KTZ have arisen such as onychomycosis, blepharitis, and hair loss. This article aims to review the literature on topical KTZ's efficacy and AEs, as well as provide an overview on current insights regarding its mechanism of action and upcoming developments.
