Curanail 5% Nail Lacquer is like a nail varnish, that can be used for up to 2 nails. It's effective against mild fungal infections that start at the tip of the nail and spread towards the base.
Fungal infections occur deep within the nail, making them difficult to treat. That's why Curanail remains active in the affected area (and is watertight and soap-resistant) for up to a week. This gives its active ingredient (amorolfine) time to penetrate the nail bed, and target the source of the infection. Amorolfine is clinically proven to kill a variety of fungi and works by stopping the production of ergosterol, an essential component of the fungal cell membrane. Without ergosterol, the cell membrane breaks down and the fungi are destroyed.
Treating a nail infection can take a long period of time. The nail will not be completely cured until the nail has grown out. That is why Curanail 5% Nail Lacquer needs to be used continuously once weekly until a new healthy nail has grown back. It normally takes about 6 months for fingernails and 9 – 12 months for toenails. Each Curanail pack contains 3ml of nail lacquer together with re-usable applicators.
Adults over the age of 18 years: file the infected area of the nail(s) with a nail file (don't use the same nail file on healthy nails, as this could spread the infection). Dip a re-usable applicator into the Curanail bottle, and apply the lacquer over the infected nail(s). Let the treated nail(s) air-dry (this will take around 3 minutes). Repeat treatment once a week, until the infected nail(s) grow(s) out.
