Avoid contact between the medicine and the eyes and mucous

membranes. In case of contact with the eyes, wash thoroughly

with water for a long time. Do not apply lacquer or other cosmetic

products on the affected nail while using this medicine.

Avoid contact between the medicine and the skin, aside from

the skin close to the nail.

If you have diabetes or are suffering from diabetic neuropathy,

inform the medical staff in order to decide how to remove and/or

cut the affected nail.

Drug interactions

If you are taking, or have recently taken other medicines,

including non-prescription medicines and nutritional

supplements, tell the doctor or pharmacist. Do not apply

lacquer or other cosmetic products on the affected nail during

the course of treatment with the medicine.

∙ Concomitant use of Myconail and systemic antifungal medicines

is not recommended.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Do not use this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

3. HOW SHOULD YOU USE THE MEDICINE?

Check with the doctor or pharmacist if you are uncertain.

The usual dosage is:

Apply an even coat with the applicator brush once a day,

preferably in the evening.

Do not exceed the recommended dose.

Do not swallow; for external use only.

Avoid contact with the eyes and mucous membranes. In case of

contact with the eyes, wash thoroughly with water for a long time.

Do not apply lacquer or other cosmetic products on the affected

nail during the course of treatment with the medicine.

Avoid contact between the medicine and the skin, aside from

the skin close to the nail.

Instructions for use:

Before commencing treatment with the medicine, cut the affected

nail with scissors as much as possible, and file with a disposable

nail file.

Apply an even coat on the surface of the nail and on the skin

close to the nail (5 mm).

If possible, apply on the skin under the nail and under the surface

of the nail. Contact with the surrounding skin may cause mild

irritation and/or redness.

To achieve maximal benefit from the treatment, the affected

parts of the nail must be removed once a month by a healthcare

professional.

Throughout the treatment period, apply on the previous coat, and

remove the coats of lacquer once a week, using a cosmetic nail

polish remover, such as acetone, to allow the active ingredient

to penetrate, and file the nail with a disposable nail file. Do

not remove the lacquer on a daily basis. Do not use cosmetic

lacquer.

∙ The duration of treatment with the medicine depends on the

severity of the infection and on the affected area.

∙ For fingernails, it is preferable to use for 3 months. For toenails,

it is preferable to use for 6 months. Do not continue treatment

beyond 6 months.

If you accidentally used a higher dosage or if a child or anyone

else has accidentally swallowed the medicine, immediately

refer to a doctor or proceed to a hospital emergency room and

bring the package of the medicine with you.

How can you contribute to the success of the treatment?

Moisture enhances fungal growth; therefore, keep the affected

area dry.

Wash the affected area before each application of the medicine.

An antifungal powder can be used to dry the area between

treatments with the lacquer.

If the treatment is for the toenails – be sure to thoroughly wash and

dry, especially between the toes. It is preferable to wear cotton

socks; avoid wearing socks made of wool or synthetic materials.

It is preferable to change them a few times a day (depending on

the amount of sweat).

It is recommended to wear sandals without socks in the

appropriate seasons.

∙ Do not take medicines in the dark! Check the label and the

dose each time you take a medicine. Wear glasses if you need

them.

If you have further questions regarding use of this medicine,

consult a doctor or pharmacist.
