                                               What is fungal nail infection?


Fungal nail infection (also known as onychomycosis) refers to infection of the top or finger nails by fungi (dermatophytes). The infection usually starts at the rim of the nail, which turns whitish-yellow, brown or green. The fungus grows under the nail, causing the nail plate to thicken and crumble. Sometimes the nail becomes partially or completely detached, which can be painful. In some cases the nail is lost completely.


                                                  How do you get fungal nail infection?

Nails – most commonly toenails – are infected by fungus due to excess moisture, heat, perspiration or poor hygiene. Normally the nail plate is too thick for fungi to penetrate, but damaged nails can easily become infected. Shoes that are too tight and/or sweaty feet provide good growing conditions for fungi. Fungal infections are contagious and can be passed to other people (e.g. by using communal showers). Self-contamination is also possible: the infection can spread from one nail to another. Some people (diabetics, patients on corticosteroids, patients with comprised immune systems) are more prone to fungal infections. It is important to treat fungal nail infection as soon as possible: the smaller the infected area, the shorted the treatment period. Swift treatment can also prevent the infection from spreading to the other nails.


                                                      How does Excilor treat fungal nail infection?

The most important constituent of toe and finger nails is keratin, which most anti-fungal preparations are unable to penetrate. In most cases fungi grow underneath the nail, which makes it difficult to treat. Excilor controls the micro-environment of the nail by acidifying the nail bed. Excilor is able to penetrate the nail, so the nail is treated from inside out. It usually takes a few months before an affected nail looks completely healthy again. On average, a toenail grows 1.5mm in one month. Excilor immediately lowers the pH of the nail, creating an environment that is hostile to fungal growth. However, the damaged nail needs tome to grow out. The efficacy of Excilor has been proven in clinical trials.
