Excilor Treatment for Fungal Nail Infection Pen Applicator

 

Quick Overview

Do I have a fungal nail infection?

If you have white spots or patches on your nail, or your the nail is turning yellow, growing thicker or becoming brittle, you may have a fungal nail infection. Fungal nail infection (onychomycosis) is a progressive disease: if it is left untreated, the infection spreads to other nails or even other people and family. If it is not treated, it can become very painful, and you could risk losing the nail permanently.


Treatment for fungal nail infections

One applicator= one complete course of treatment*
Excilor penetrates the nail and rapidly reduces the nail's pH.
By changing the nail's microenvironment, Excilor makes it more hostile to fungi so they find it difficult to grow.
The damaged nail should be given time to grow back. The first results of the treatment can be seen as soon as the healthy new nail appears.
Do not press down hard on the applicator when treating the nail.

* Studies have shown that on average, a single applicator constitutes a full course of treatment for one infected nail.

How does Excilor® treat fungal nail infection?

Excilor® controls the micro-environment of the nail by acidifying the nail bed. Excilor® is able to penetrate the nail, so the nail is treated from the inside out getting to the fungi growing underneath. It can take a few months before the affected nail looks completely healthy again. On average, a toenail grows 1.5 mm a month. Excilor® lowers the pH of the nail as soon as you apply it, creating an environment that's hostile to fungal growth. However, the damaged nail does need time to grow out.

Clinical trials have proved the effectiveness of Excilor®

What is fungal nail infection?

Fungal nail infection or to give it's technical name Onychomycosis refers to infection of the toe or finger nails by fungi (dermatophytes). The infection usually starts at the rim of the nail, which turns to a whitish-yellow, brown or green colour. The fungus grows under or into the nail, causing the nail plate to thicken and crumble. Sometimes the nail can become partially or completely detached, which may be painful and in some cases the nail will come away completely from the toe or finger

How do you get fungal nail infection?

Nails or more commonly toenails can be infected by fungus due to excessive moisture, heat, perspiration or poor hygiene. Normally the nail plate is too thick for fungi to penetrate, however damaged nails can easily become infected.

Shoes that are too tight and/or feet that perspire provides perfect conditions for fungi to develop and spread. The fungal infections are contagious and can be passed to others by using communal showers, changing rooms or swimming pools. Self-contamination is also possible: the infection can spread from one nail to another. Some people (diabetics, patients on corticosteroids, patients with compromised immune systems) are more prone to fungal infections. It is important to treat fungal nail infection as soon as possible: the smaller the infected area, the shorter the period of treatment. Swift treatment can also prevent the infection from spreading to other nails.

How to prevent fungal nail infection.

  • Make sure you wash your feet regularly and rinse your feet thoroughly afterwards to remove all traces of the soap.
  • Dry your feet thoroughly, especially between the toes.
  • Always wear clean cotton or woollen socks.
  • Wear shoes that allow your feet to “breathe” and are not too tight. Changing your shoes regularly.
  • Use an anti-fungal products in your shoes.
  • Wear sandals in areas where a lot of people walk barefoot, for example in communal showers, changing rooms and swimming pools.
