Topical therapy is an attractive choice for the treatment of the cutaneous infections due to its advantages such as targeting of drugs to the site of infection and reduction of the risk of systemic side effects. Optimal selection and dosing of antifungal agents are important, as these infections are often refractory to available therapy. Agents administered for invasive infections are amphotericin B, flucytosine, and azole antifungals. Several drugs are under investigation, such as posiconazole…
