How does Loceryl nail lacquer work?
Loceryl nail lacquer contains the active ingredient amorolfine. This antifungal medicine kills fungi and yeasts by interfering with their cell membranes.
Amorolfine works by causing holes to appear in the fungal cell membranes. This allows essential constituents of the fungal cells to leak out, which kills the fungi and ultimately clears up the infection.
Fungal nail infections are often difficult to eradicate, because the nails are hard and difficult to penetrate and take a long time to grow as new healthy tissue. Loceryl nail lacquer is painted onto the infected nails like nail varnish. The lacquer is resistant to soap and water and stays on the nails, allowing the medicine to penetrate through the nail into the nail bed and attack the infection.
What should I know about using Loceryl nail lacquer?
The lacquer should be only be applied to infected nails.
Take care to avoid getting the lacquer in contact with eyes, ears and inside of the nose and mouth. Do not inhale the vapour.
You can use cosmetic nail polish on nails you have treated, however don’t apply these until at least ten minutes after applying Loceryl. Each time you need to reapply Loceryl you should remove any cosmetic nail polish first, then file and cleanse the nail as described above.
Do not apply artificial nails on the nails you are treating with Loceryl.
If you need to work with organic solvents (eg thinners, white spirit etc) while you’re using Loceryl, you should wear impermeable gloves to protect the medicine on the nails.
