My child put the Excilor® product in his/her mouth. What should I do?

The product's contents are not toxic but may irritate the mucous lining of the eyes, nose or mouth. If the product comes into contact with the eyes or inside of the mouth, rinse using plenty of water. If Excilor accidentally comes into contact with the mucous lining of the eyes, nose or mouth, contact the Poisons Information Line on 13 11 26.

The instructions advised me to “clean the nail and remove any traces of nail polish” before each application. Can I simply clean the nail with soap and water or should I always use nail polish remover?

Remove nail polish before applying Excilor fungal nail treatment products. If Excilor is used on nail polish, it can partially dissolve the nail polish – this in turn contaminates the product so it no longer works properly. Additionally, Excilor is unable to penetrate nail polish as effectively compared to use on a clean nail.
