|Curanail 5% Nail Lacquer|
| Curanail contains the active ingredient amorolfine, an effective antifungal agent previously only available on prescription. Curanail kills a wide range of different fungi that can cause nail infections. This means that, for the majority of sufferers, Curanail can actually cure the infection.|
In addition, Curanail comes in the form of a nail lacquer (like a nail varnish), which only needs to be applied once a week. This combination of effectiveness and convenience makes Curanail a first choice treatment for a fungal nail infection.
Each Curanail pack contains:
3ml bottle (approximately 3 months' supply) of lacquer
How effective is Curanail?
Amorolfine nail lacquer is an effective treatment that has been shown to clear 85% of fungal infections of the fingernails and 76% of toenail infections (defined as clinical cure plus improvement) with 6 months treatment. Treatment for a fingernail infection is expected to take 6 months (the time for a new nail to re-grow) and about 9-12 months for an infection of the toenail.
Who can use Curanail?
You can use Curanail to treat a fungal nail infection if:
you are aged over 18
the infection shows up on the upper half or sides of the nail.
Who cannot use Curanail?
Curanail should NOT be used by:
those aged under 18
women who are pregnant or breastfeeding
anyone who has ever suffered an allergic reaction to amorolfine or any of the other ingredients in Curanail
If these apply to you, you should see a doctor.
People with diabetes, a weak immune system or poor blood circulation should check with their doctor before using Curanail.
How do I use it?
Curanail comes in a pack containing a small bottle of lacquer and reusable applicators. Nails should be treated ONCE A WEEK.
Curanail involves a simple 3 step process:
Step 1: Prepare the nail
Using a new file, gently file down the infected areas of nail, including the nail surface. Protect any healthy nails while you are doing this so that you don't spread the infection.
CAUTION: Do not use the same nail file for infected nails and healthy nails, as this could spread the infection as well. To prevent the spread of infection take care that no one else uses the files from your kit.
Step 2: Clean the nail
Use one of the swabs provided to clean the nail surface. Do not throw the swab away as you will need it later to clean the applicator.
Step 3: Treat the nail
Dip one of the re-usable applicators into the bottle of nail lacquer. The lacquer must not be wiped off on the edge of the bottle before it is applied. Apply the nail lacquer evenly over the entire surface of the nail. Let the treated nail(s) dry for approximately 3 minutes.
Are there any side effects?
Fortunately side effects with Curanail are uncommon.
Very rarely, there may be a slight burning sensation around the nails after application, but this soon wears off
When using Curanail you should not wear nail varnish or artificial nails as they may stop the treatment from working properly
Take care to avoid the lacquer coming into contact with eyes, ears, mouth or nose
