Naftin for Nails

By interfering with the ability of fungus to build cell walls, Naftin® (naftifine) can help treat certain fungal infections. This prescription drug is specifically approved to treat ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch. But what about "off-label" (unapproved) uses for the medicine?
There may be times when a healthcare provider prescribes Naftin for treating fungal infections on the fingernails or toenails. These, however, are unapproved uses for the drug. Naftin is approved for use in adults only, as it has not been adequately studied in children.
