What is Penlac?
Penlac is a nail lacquer used in the treatment of nail infections caused by the fungus Trichophyton rubrum (ringworm of the nails). It is prescribed only if the pale semicircle at the base of the nail is free of infection. It is part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes professional removal of the unattached infected nails as frequently as monthly.
Please consult your physician before taking this medication.
