What is Loceryl Curanail nail lacquer?

Loceryl is an antifungal which is used to treat fungal nail infections.

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 are at a heightened 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 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 it 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 work?

Loceryl nail lacquer contains an antifungal called amorolfine.

This medicine damages the cells of the fungi by perforating the cell wall. The contents of the cell 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 minimise your risk of contracting fungal nail infections.

How to use Loceryl nail lacquer?

Paint the lacquer onto your infected nail(s) twice a week.

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.

Clean the infected nail with one of the disposable alcohol swabs.

Dip the applicator into the lacquer but do not wipe any excess off on the edge of the bottleneck.

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.

Once applied, clean the applicator using the alcohol swap you used prior before putting the applicator back in the bottle.

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 side effects. It may also leave you with an insufficient amount of medicine to treat the infection.
