FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray Liquid is crystal clear, odorless, and applies easily with its non-aerosol pump spray, delivering highly effective anti-fungal medication directly to the site of infection. With FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray, fingers need never touch affected areas.

WHAT IS FUNGUS INFECTION?

Generally speaking, common fungus infections are topical infections 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 tear and may be contracted by touching infected surfaces, animals or other people. Once infection starts, spreading may occur among body parts...from toe to toe...from finger to finger. 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 in between the fingers and toes including the skin around the nails. Other common fungi are 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.

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 INTENSIVE Pump Spray Liquid and discuss its use.

HOW FUNGICURE INTENSIVE PUMP SPRAY LIQUID ANTI-FUNGAL WORKS; PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND ACTION:

FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray Liquid is an effective topical formulation containing the ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Clotrimazole 1% w/v. INACTIVE INGREDIENT: Isopropyl alcohol. The active ingredient Clotrimazole in FUNGICURE INTENSIVE is a widely recognized, doctor recommended anti-fungal agent effective against fungi such as E. floccosum, T. mentagrophytes and T. rubrum, which are known to cause topical infections of the body, hands and feet. FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray eliminates and helps stop the spread of fungal infection where reachable with its medicated spray liquid. FUNGICURE INTENSIVE helps soothe and relieve itching, scaling, cracking, burning, redness, soreness, irritation and discomforts which may accompany fungus infection by eliminating the fungus...allowing for the natural regrowth of healthy skin.

PROMPT ACTION AND PROPER TREATMENT:

Recognizing and treating fungus infection early is very important for successful results, so 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 INTENSIVE, it is continued uninterrupted, carefully following and adhering to package directions until satisfactory results are achieved or with further advice from a doctor. Factors such as product odor and ease of use are important in the encouragement of proper and continued use. Therefore FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray Liquid is formulated to be easy to apply, fast drying, odorless and crystal clear. NOTE: Noticeable improvement may be expected within 4 weeks in the case of athlete's foot (tinea pedis) and ringworm (tinea corporis), two weeks for jock itch (tinea cruris). Consult your doctor for advice if noticeable improvement is not evident by this time or if condition persists or worsens.

HOW CAN YOU AVOID RECURRENCE OF FUNGUS INFECTION?

  1. Keep hands and feet meticulously clean and dry, as well as any areas of the body that may be normally covered by clothing that restricts air flow allowing moisture to build up. Fungus enjoys and thrives on moisture. 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 change shoes and socks daily.
  3. Avoid trimming cuticles and avoid cutting nails too close. Anything that tears or opens the skin invites fungus to invade. Be very observant for early signs of recurrence and don't hesitate to take prompt action with FUNGICURE INTENSIVE Pump Spray Liquid following package directions carefully.
