  • Prevents infection

LOCERYL contains the active ingredient amorolfine. It is used to treat fungal infections of the nails.

LOCERYL belongs to a family of medicines called anti-fungal drugs. These medicines work by killing a wide variety of fungi that can cause nail infections.

This medicine is available from a pharmacy. A doctor’s prescription is not required.

LOCERYL treatment alone is not suitable for use in severe infections where the lunula is affected. In this case, you should talk to your healthcare practitioner. The lunula is the crescent-shaped area at the base of the nail – see the illustration on the LOCERYL carton.

Because fungal nail infections are hard to treat, treatment may be required for 6-12 months or longer and a full cure cannot be expected in all cases. After 6 months of treatment, improvement can be expected in 70% to 80% of people, with full cure expected in approximately one in three people.

How to use

LOCERYL is for external use only, do not swallow LOCERYL. Apply only to finger nails and toe nails, avoid the surrounding skin.

How to apply the nail lacquer:

Follow these instructions each time the lacquer is used

Before painting with LOCERYL nail lacquer, file down the infected areas of the nail (particularly the nail surfaces) as thoroughly as possible using the nail file. CAUTION: Nail files used on an infected nail must not be used on healthy nails.
Clean the surface of the infected nail with a cleaning pad. Put the cleaning pad aside, do not discard.
Dip one of the reusable spatulas into the lacquer. Do not wipe it on the neck of the bottle.Note: the spatula provides a measured dose of LOCERYL.
Using the spatula, paint LOCERYL nail lacquer over the entire surface of the infected nail.
When you have finished treating all of your infected nails, clean the spatula and the neck of the bottle with the same cleaning pad that was used during the treatment.
To avoid evaporation, close the bottle tightly.
Allow time for the nails to dry (3 to 5 minutes).
Discard used cleaning pad and nail file. Stow spatula and nail lacquer for next treatment.
Subsequent applications of LOCERYL:

File the infected areas of the nail using the nail file as required to remove any remaining lacquer, ensure that you do not over-file to avoid damage to the nail and surrounding area. Repeat steps 3-9.

Side effects & Cautions

All medicines can have side effects. LOCERYL helps most people with fungal infections of the nails but it may have unwanted side effects in a few people.

Tell your doctor, or pharmacist if you notice any of the following and they worry you:

burning feeling in the area surrounding the treated nail(s). This is usually mild and short-lasting.

itching or redness of the skin.

rare cases of nail disorder (nail discolouration, brittle or broken nails) have been reported during treatment with LOCERYL nail lacquer. However these reactions may also be linked to the nail infection itself.
