Bukwang Pharmaceutical said Tuesday that it has put Dermomedi Q Solution, a toenail fungal treatment, on the market.
The drug is the only locally sold treatment that contains five unique compounds -- terbinafine, lidocaine, diphenhydramine hydrochloride, glycyrrhetinic acid isopropyl methyl phenol -- and terbinafine, a major component in antifungal therapy, the company said.
It is easy to carry and apply as it does not require the user to use his hand when administering the treatment, it said.
“Athlete's foot is a disease that requires continuous treatment and lifestyle management to prevent recurrences,” a company official said. “Dermomedi Q Solution is a multi-component product that reduces fungal suppression and instant tickling.”
Patients suffering from Athlete's foot can easily buy the product at local pharmacies, the official added.
