A WORD ABOUT MAXIMUM STRENGTH FUNGICURE ANTI-FUNGAL LIQUID:

With your purchase of doctor recommended FUNGICURE Liquid, you have chosen a highly effective and remarkably convenient treatment for common fungus infection of the finger and toe areas including on skin around and adjacent to nails and under nail tips where reachable with the FUNGICURE applicator brush. FUNGICURE's convenient applicator brush allows for controlled, targeted application so medicine may be applied directly and neatly to the site of infection. With FUNGICURE your fingers need never touch affected areas. FUNGICURE liquid dries fast without messy residue or unpleasant medicinal odor.

WHAT IS FUNGUS INFECTION OF THE FINGER AND TOE AREAS?

Generally speaking, common fungus infections of the finger and toe areas (topical infections) are caused by a variety of fungi; actual living organisms (members of the yeast and mold family) which exist in the natural environment and tend to thrive in dark, damp conditions. These organisms may penetrate the skin's surface through even the smallest crack or ttear and may be contracted by touching infected surfaces, animals or other people. Once infection starts, spreading may occur among body parts...one toe to another...one finger to another. There are a number of specific types of fungi, each of which can affect body tissue and proceed to grow. Common topical fungi infectives generally fall into three categories: microsporum (hair and skin), epidermophyton (skin and nails), and trichophyton (hair, skin and nails). Among the more common fungi is E. floccosum which can cause ringworm infection on the body, hands and feet, on and between the fingers and toes including the skin around the nails. Other common fungi are M. canis, which can cause ringworm affecting the body and hands; M. gypseum, which can cause ringworm of the trunk of the body and the skin around the nails; T. tonsurans, which can cause ringworm and athlete's foot, including infecting the skin around the nails; and T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes which can cause athlete's foot and infect the feet, on and between the toes including the skin around the toenails. Often such infections develop slowly and may be difficult to treat if not attended to promptly with an effective anti-fungal medicine like FUNGICURE.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TOPICAL FUNGUS INFECTION?

Some topical fungal infections may present themselves on the skin as ring-like formations with clear centers, commonly referred to as ringworm. Other such infections, when in the finger and toe areas, are often characterized by scaling of skin, burning, cracking, itching and related discomforts. When nails become infected, they may appear to become opaque (cloudy white), thickened, brittle, friable (easily broken) and in some cases, discolored (greenish/brown). NOTE: If you believe you may have any type of fungus infection, do not delay consulting a doctor for advice. You may wish to show him/her FUNGICURE Liquid and discuss its use.

HOW FUNGICURE LIQUID WORKS; PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND ACTION:

MAXIMUM STRENGTH FUNGICURE Liquid is an effective topical formulation containing the ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Undecylenic Acid 25% w/v INACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Aloe vera gel, fragrance, hypromellose, isopropyl alcohol (70% v/v), purified water, vitamin E.

Undecylenic acid in FUNGICURE Liquid is a widely recognized, proven anti-fungal ingredient effective against fungi such as E. floccosum, T. mentagrophytes, M. canis, M gypseum, T. tonsurans and T. rubrum, which are known to cause topical infections of the body, hands and feet, including on and between fingers and toes, as well as on cuticles and skin around nails.

FUNGICURE Liquid acts promptly to target and destroy fungus at the site of infection while preventing its spread. FUNGICURE helps relieve associated burning, itching and discomforts by eliminating the fungus...allowing for the natural regrowth of healthy looking tissue.

WHY FUNGICURE LIQUID IS SO EFFECTIVE IN NAIL AREA INFECTION:

Fungal infection of the nail areas can affect both the nail beds as well as the nail surfaces themselves, commonly referred to as the nail plates. While an actual intact nail plate, being a hard surface, is generally not readily penetrable by topical applications, there are instances where nail plates are not intact and are actually cracked open, breached or otherwise exposed, either partially or fully, including instances where a nail plate has actually lifted away and separated from its nail bed. There are other instances where fungus resides on skin around and adjacent to the nail plate, at the very edges, on the cuticles, and under the exposed quick of the nail. In these instances where the nail itself and the nail bed, harboring fungus, are exposed, FUNGICURE Anti-Fungal Liquid, with its powerful anti-fungal action, applied as directed, is able to reach the fungus by direct application or by related capillary action. Reaching the actual site where the fungus resides, FUNGICURE Anti-Fungal Liquid eliminates the fungus, and in so doing, allows for the re-growth of healthy nail bed and nail plate tissue.

Fungal infections which are isolated beneath an intact nail plate or embedded within the nail plate itself may require consultation from a Doctor or Pharmacist for proper treatment. You may wish to show them FUNGICURE Liquid and discuss its use.

PROMPT ACTION AND PROPER TREATMENT:

Recognizing and treating fungus infection early is very important for successful results. Therefore, it is wise to consult your doctor promptly for advice if you suspect you may have a fungal Infection. It is likewise important, for successful results, that once treatment is started with FUNGICURE it is continued uninterrupted, carefully following package directions, until satisfactory results are achieved or advised by a doctor, as directed on the package.

NOTE: Noticeable improvement may be expected within 4 weeks in the case of ringworm (tinea corporis) and athlete's foot (tinea pedis). Consult your doctor for advice if noticeable improvement is not evident by this time or if condition persists or worsens.

HOW TO AVOID RECURRENCE OF FUNGUS INFECTION?

  1. Since fungus enjoys and thrives on moisture, keep hands and feet meticulously clean and dry. Good personal hygiene is your first line of defense against recurring fungus infections.
  2. In cases where athlete's foot (tinea pedis) has been a problem, wear well ventilated shoes and wear clean socks daily.
  3. Avoid any practices that can tear or bruise the skin. Avoid trimming cuticles back too far and avoid cutting nails too close. Anything that tears or opens the skin invites fungus to invade.
