Answer

Treatment with topical agents may not be effective but can be attempted for chronic candidal paronychia. [66] Antifungal solutions are preferred over creams to allow drying. Exacerbating factors such as excessive exposure to moisture should be discontinued. Oral therapy itraconazole, fluconazole, or terbinafine may be used.
