Background: Topical administration of antifungal agents was generally considered as safe and effective route for treatment of skin fungal infections compared to systemic administration. However, the barrier nature of stratum corneum (SC) hampers drug penetration through, and partition into, skin which makes topical drug administration inadequate.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
