• Apply the nail solution thinly to cover the whole of the affected
nail(s) and surrounding skin using the brush provided. Apply the
solution every 12 hours.
• Leave the solution to dry for 10-15 minutes after application.
• The solution does not dry hard. A transparent, slightly greasy
film is left on the nail. This film contains the antifungal agent and
it slowly passes through the nail to reach the site of infection.
• The film should be left intact as long as possible. This allows
the antifungal agent to have maximum effect.
• Try to avoid putting your hands (or feet if your toenails are
affected) in soapy water immediately after applying the solution.
Soap or detergent removes the film. Water alone does not
remove the film.
• If you need to wash anything by hand, it is best to wear rubber

cases 12 months.
