What is Loceryl (amorolfine) nail lacquer?

Loceryl is a brand of amorolfine nail lacquer. The lacquer solution is applied directly to the infected nails, where it works directly to kill the fungus responsible for the infection.

Each pack of Amorolfine comes with everything you need to treat your nails including nail files and alcohol wipes, as well as detailed instructions on how to use Loceryl nail lacquer.

You can buy amorolfine lacquer from Prescription Doctor as Loceryl Curanail or as a generic. If your order is approved by one of our doctors before 3pm on a weekday, our Uk pharmacy will dispatch your item the same day via a discreet, next-day delivery courtesy of Royal Mail.

All items dispatched from our pharmacy are packaged in plain discreet packaging to ensure your privacy when you buy Loceryl (amorolfine) online.


What is a fungal nail infection?

Fungal nail infections, also known as dermatophytic onychomycosis, often starts to develop at the edge of the nail, causing discolouration and damage to the nail. People with diabetes, weak immune systems and those who share public changing facilities have an increased risk of getting nail infections.

It starts to develop at the edge of the nail and spreads across. If left untreated, a fungal nail infection can cause foot pain or spread to other parts of the body and cause other conditions like athlete's foot, jock itch or cellulitis.

The infection can cause the nail to lift from the nail bed. The nail may need to partially or fully removed by a medical procedure called avulsion. In some cases, the infected nail may need to be permanently removed (matrixectomy). This involves surgically or chemically destroying the growing centre of the nail's base, preventing the nail from growing back.

If you suspect you have a fungal nail infection, speak to your GP. They will take a sample from your nail to determine whether the infection is caused by a fungus. If the test is positive, they will recommend the right course of treatment.

Treatment usually involves an oral or topical antifungal. It can take between 12-18 months for the infection to go away. Successful treatment of fungal nail infection does not build immunity to future infections, making it possible for the infection to return.


How does Loceryl nail lacquer work?

Loceryl nail lacquer contains an antifungal medicine called amorolfine.

Amorolfine damages the cells of the fungi by perforating the cell wall. This causes the contents of the cell to spill out, killing the cell and preventing it from replicating.

While the medicine treats an ongoing infection, it does not prevent future infections from occurring. If you are concerned about future infections, speak to your doctor about preventative measures you can take to reduce your risk of getting fungal nail infections.


How to use Loceryl nail lacquer?

Each pack of nail lacquer comes with everything you need to safely apply the solution to your nails, including:

  • 30 application spatulas
  • 30 cleansing swabs
  • 30 nail files
  • Loceryl nail lacquer (5ml)

Instructions on how to use amorolfine nail lacquer can be found in the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine. Follow the instructions carefully to ensure you are applying the medicine correctly.

Amorolfine nail lacquer should be used twice a week to clear fungal nail infections. 

  1. Start by filing the infected nail thoroughly with the included nail files. Do not use these files on your healthy nails as this can increase the risk of spreading the infection. When you have finished using the file, safely discard it.
  2. Clean the infected nail with one of the included disposable alcohol swabs.
  3. Dip the applicator into the lacquer but do not wipe any excess off on the edge of the bottleneck.
  4. Apply the lacquer to the nail, ensuring to cover the entire surface area of the nail. Leave the lacquer to dry for approximately 5 minutes.
  5. Once applied, clean the applicator using the alcohol swap you used prior before putting the applicator back in the bottle.
  6. Safely discard the used alcohol swab.

Store the medicine away from the sight and reach of children.

Use the lacquer continuously until the infection has entirely grown out of the nail otherwise, you run the risk of a reoccurring infection.

Using more of the solution than recommended by your doctor will not clear up the infection faster, but it may increase your risk of experiencing side effects. It may also leave you with an insufficient amount of medicine to treat the infection.

What should I do if I forget to use Loceryl (amorolfine) nail lacquer?

If you forget to use Loceryl, use it as soon as you remember. Continue to use Loceryl as you normally would.

Do not use more Loceryl nail lacquer to make up for the missed dose. Using more amorolfine nail lacquer than recommended by your doctor will not speed up the recovery process, but may increase your risk of side effect
