How to use ciclopirox topical
Use this medication on the skin only. Clean and dry the area to be treated. Apply a thin layer of the medication on and around the affected area and gently rub into the skin or scalp, usually twice daily or as directed by your doctor. Wash your hands after using unless the area being treated includes the hands. Do not wrap, cover, or bandage the area unless directed to do so by your doctor.
Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day.
Continue to use this medication for the full time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may result in a return of the infection.
Tell your doctor if your condition worsens or does not improve after 4 weeks.
