OTC Treatment for Nail Disorder

Nail abnormalities are common in Bangladesh as well as around the world. Appearances may be difficult to diagnose with certainty, and care must be taken to ensure correct diagnosis and therefore treatment.

There are several types of nail disorders. A fungal infection is the most common, usually affecting the toenails. Some others also can affect the nails, including dystrophies, deformities and infections.

Signs and symptoms of a nail disorder include:

  • Discoloration or spotting
  • Painful, red swelling
  • Pits, ridges, scars
  • Lesions
  • Brown black band

Possible causes

  • Infections
  • Skin diseases
  • Benign or malignant tumors
  • Certain systemic diseases

Over-the-counter treatments

Otc treatment for nail disorder are available in the form of liquids, solutions and creams that are applied directly to the nail and surrounding skin. Common topical antifungals include clotrimazole, miconazole and terbinafine. Because they do not penetrate the nail, they work best on infections of the skin or nail surface, such as athlete’s foot. When the fungus has invaded the nail bed, prescription medicines have the best chance of treating the infection.


To prevent a nail disroder, you should:
  • Keep your toenails cut short.
  • Make sure your shoes fit properly.
  • Avoid walking barefoot at public showers and swimming facilities.
  • Throw out old, worn footwear.
  • Treatment Plan

Your health care provider may remove the infected nail and prescribe oral medication, as well as medication to apply to the nail.
