Fungal nail infection FAQ

Is this product suitable for use by diabetics?
Excilor® physically impedes the growth of infectious fungi by reducing the pH value of the nail (making it more acidic). This is not a pharmacological effect so there are no contraindications for diabetics. A combination of acidic substances penetrates the nail creating an environment that is hostile to dermatophytes (the fungi responsible for mycosis). The action is localised and targeted. Nonetheless it is recommended that diabetics with foot problems consult their doctor when starting to use Excilor nail fungus treatment.
My nail has a fungal nail infection. How long will it take to eliminate the fungus?

As explained on the packaging the product should be applied to the affected nail(s) twice a day until the nail has grown back as a normal healthy nail. By then the patches and/or spots should have disappeared or the nail is no longer thickened or brittle.

A nail only grows about 1.5 mm a month. Excilor® not only makes the white/yellow patches on your nail disappear. More importantly – it gets rid of the actual micro-organisms (the dermatophytes or fungi) which live under your fingernail or toenail. It can take several weeks to make all the micro-organisms disappear. Meanwhile the healthy nail grows back and if you regularly trim the nail using nail clippers the dis-colouration will gradually vanish.

My child put the Excilor® product in his/her mouth. What should I do?
The product's contents are non toxic but may irritate the mucous lining of the eyes, nose or mouth. The product cannot be opened so children cannot access the contents directly. Because Excilor® has a bitter taste your child is unlikely to swallow or ingest it deliberately. If the product comes into contact with the eyes or inside of the mouth rinse them out using plenty of water.
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?
You only have to use nail polish remover if the nail is covered with nail polish. 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. Excilor® is unable to penetrate nail polish as effectively. It is important that nail polish is removed using nail polish remover so Excilor® pcan penetrate the nail and reach the infected area.
Where can I buy Excilor products?
Excilor is available in a number of (online) drugstores.
