     FUNGITER 5% medicated nail lacquer should be applied to the affected nails once a week exactly according to the instructions for use:

     Instructions for use:

    Step 1: File the nail

    Before the first application, file as thoroughly as possible the infected areas of the nail, including the nail surface, using the nail file provided.

    CAUTION: Nail files used for infected nails should not be used on healthy nails. Otherwise, the infection may spread. To prevent the spread of infection, ensure that the nail files provided are not used by others.

     Step 2: Clean the nail

    Use one of the swabs provided (or nail polish remover) to clean the nail surface.

    Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each affected nail.  

     Step 3: Take some lacquer from the bottle

    Dip one of the provided reusable spatulas into the bottle of medicated nail lacquer. The lacquer must not be wiped off the edge of the bottle before it is applied.  

     Step 4: Apply the medicated nail lacquer

    Apply the medicated nail lacquer evenly over the entire surface of the nail. Repeat this step for each affected nail.

    Let the treated nail(s) dry for approximately 3-5 minutes.

     Step 5: Cleaning the spatulas

    The spatulas provided are reusable. It is important to clean them thoroughly after each treatment procedure using the same swab used for nail cleansing. Avoid touching freshly treated nails with the swab. Close the nail lacquer bottle tightly.

    Carefully dispose of the swab as it is inflammable.  

      • Before using the nail lacquer again, first remove the old layer of lacquer from your nails using a swab, then file the nails if necessary.

    • Reapply the medicated nail lacquer as described above in the instructions for use.

    • When dry, the nail lacquer is unaffected by soap and water, so you may wash your hands and feet as usual.

    • It is important to continue using FUNGITER 5% medicated nail lacquer until the infection clears and healthy nails grow. This usually takes 6 months for fingernails and 9 to 12 months for toenails. You will notice the growth of a healthy nail at the place of the damaged one.

    If you, or anyone else, accidentally swallows the medicated nail lacquer contact your doctor or pharmacist or visit the nearest hospital immediately.

    Do not stop using FUNGITER 5% medicated nail lacquer until your doctor tells you to do so. Otherwise, the infection could come back.
