Loceryl Curanail is a bottle of lacquer, like a nail varnish, that can be used for up to two nails. It is effective against mild fungal infections that start at the tip of the nail and spread towards the base (by clicking on this link you can view the manufacturer’s images showing this).
Fungal infections occur deep within the nail, making them difficult to treat. That’s why Loceryl Curanail remains active in the affected area (and is watertight and soap-resistant) for up to a week. This gives its active ingredient time to penetrate the nail bed, and target the source of the infection.
(You’ll need to keep using Loceryl Curanail until the infected nail grows out.)
Inside the Loceryl Curanail pack you’ll always find all you need for your treatment:
