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 recommend that diabetics with foot problems consult their doctor when starting to use Excilor nail fungus treatment (including ULTRA).
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.
No clinical data is available on whether Excilor can be used by children.
No clinical data is available on the use of this product during pregnancy.
The product's contents are not 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.
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.
Freeze Acid 2-Compartment consists of two products, for each phase of the treatment cycle. For cryotherapy on day 1, to open product 1, twist the black foam holder from the closed lock symbol towards the open lock symbol as shown in the Instructions for Use.
For the gel treatment on Days 2,3,4,5, to open product 2, twist the white gel applicator to align the drop symbol with the open lock symbol. Once separated, you turn the dial of the gel applicator clockwise as indicated in the Instructions for Use.
When healthy skin is exposed to freeze therapy, a frostbite may develop. This can be mildly painful but typically heals without medical intervention.
When healthy skin is exposed to the gel treatment, rinse the complete area with excessive water and soap and re-apply the gel to the wart only.
To verify whether the wart has been removed, you could soak the treated area in lukewarm water for 5 minutes and rub the calls carefully with a file. If the skin does not show little black dots (little blood vessels, typical for a wart), the wart has been removed.
During the treatment, a layer of callus (hardened skin layer) will form. The callus is not a wart. The callus might need a couple of weeks to wear before the optimal result is seen. Renewed skin will appear smoother, slightly pink and regain its natural colour within subsequent weeks.
Avoid inhaling of the freezing agent by only performing the treatment in a well ventilated area. If you accidentally inhale the freezing agent and you are experiencing complaints, please consult the emergency department of the hospital.
If you accidentally ingest the gel, please consult the emergency department of the hospital.
When in place, the Excilor® Skin Tag Treatment device stops the flow of blood to the skin tag by way of ligation. The skin tag then gradually withers away in a safe way, with negligible risk of scarring and no pain.
