The difficulties encountered in the treatment of onychomycosis are primarily related to the necessity of prolonged systemic therapy. Many of these difficulties could, then, be avoided by the use of an effective local treatment. The present study compared the effectiveness and tolerability of two topical ungual preparations: a 28% solution of tioconazole and a 2% tincture of miconazole. The therapeutic results and tolerability of both preparations were found to be satisfactory. The tioconazole preparation proved to be slightly more effective although the difference was not statistically significant.
