Fungal infections on the nail are a common problem suffered by millions of people around the globe --- particularly in areas that are warm, humid, and wet.

Fungi are small microorganisms that thrive in moist and warm environments. You can find them anywhere --- in the ground, on plants, in your home, and even on your body. Fungal infections on the nails are caused by an overgrowth of local or invasive fungi in the area. Fungal infections on the nail are usually treated with Curanail. But how does Curanail work? Read on to find out.

What it’s like to have a nail fungal infection

There are different types of nail fungal infections but almost all of them share the same characteristics. Common signs of nail fungal infections include:

  • Brittle nail
  • Bad odour or discharge from the infected nail
  • Nail that’s lifted from the nail bed
  • Thickened nail

Nail fungal infections can affect a part of the nail, the entire nail, or several nails.

Say goodbye to nail fungal infections with Curanail

Curanail is an effective antifungal nail lacquer that kills the majority of fungi that cause nail fungal infections. A clinically proven treatment, Curanail contains amorolfine as its active ingredient.

How to use Curanail

Curanail is applied to the infected nail like nail varnish. You only need to use it once a week or as directed by your doctor. You should continue using Curanail until the infection has fully healed. It may take up to twelve months for your infected nail to heal completely.

How does Curanail Work?

Amorolfine, the anti-fungal ingredient of Curanail, prevents the fungi from producing a chemical called ergosterol. This chemical is an important component of the fungi’s cell membranes. Without this, the cells become more prone to leakage which eventually kills the fungi. Because nails are tough and can take a lot of time to grow back as healthy tissue, treatment with Curanail may last up to 12 months.

Below is an example of how a typical Curanail treatment progresses:

Month 1 to Month 3

If used as directed by your GP, the amorolfine in Curanail will start penetrating the nail until it reaches the nail bed where the root of infection usually is. It will then start killing the fungi causing the infection.

Month 3 to Month 6

Treatment of the infection is ongoing and you should start seeing your healthy nail grow back. Continue using Curanail until a new, fully healthy nail replaces the infected one.

Month 6 to Month 9

You should see significant improvement on your nails. By this time, the majority of the infected nail should be growing out. You should see fewer symptoms of nail fungal infections like thickening and discolouration at this point.

Month 9 to Month 12

By this time, all of the infected nails should have been replaced by a fully healthy, fungi-free nail.

Curanail treatment takes this long because its progress depends on how fast or slow your nail growth is. Typically, toenails grow fully within 9-12 months while fingernails take around 6 months.

Is Curanail effective against nail fungal infections?

Yes! In fact, this antifungal medication has a very high success rate despite the time it takes to fully eliminate your infection. Clinical studies show that Curanail is successful at clearing 75% of toenail infections in six months. For fingernails, it’s effectiveness is even higher at 85%.
