Generally used medications are antifungals- fluconazole, Itraconazole, butenafine, Clotrimazole and also used several antibiotics such as- ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin. There are several factors such as- Molecular size of the drug, hydrophilicity and lipophilicity of diffusing molecule, nature of vehicle, formulation effect, which affected the delivery of drug over the nail plate. The penetration of the drug molecules should be difficult so for the drug delivery use some penetration enhancers. In the present review main focus on that delivery of drug is done by using formulation in the form of the nail lacquer.
