ClearZal Fungal Nail Care System contains the active ingredient benzalkonium chloride, a topical antiseptic active against bacteria and fungus. Antiseptics inhibit the growth of micro-organisms including fungi, bacteria and viruses. ClearZal Antifungal Nail Care System also contains aloe vera to condition and soften damaged nails.
The ClearZal Fungal Nail Care System kit includes a bottle of antifungal solution and a nail file to debride infected nail prior to treatment. The dropper-tipped delivery system is 99.9 percent effective against bacteria and fungus. Alcohol and oil free formula won't dry skin. Use it between applications of artificial nails and nail polish. 1-1 fluid oz. bottle.
Indications - The ClearZal Fungal Nail Care System is used in the treatment of fungal nail infections or onychomycosis.
Foot Care Tip! A topical antifungal treatment can be as successful as an oral treatment, but topical medications require patience and compliance. Fungus doesn't take a day off, so compliance is key. You need to treat the nail daily to inhibit fungal growth. Inhibiting fungal growth allows the healthy nail to grow faster than the fungus. Over time the healthy nail overtakes the fungus and the nail clears. Success may require four months of topical treatment for mild cases and 12 months for severe infections.
Other fungal nail care tips -
- Periodic debridement of thick, fungal nails should be performed with a nail cutter on a regular basis to enable ClearZal Fungal Nail Care System to reach the fungal elements of the nail.
- Thick fungal nails that require chemical debridement should be treated with Natural Antifungal Nail Butter. Natural Antifungal Nail Butter contains 40% urea, a naturally occuring nitrogen crystal that debrides nail tissue while treating fungal nails with tea tree oil.
- A medicated nail polish that comes in colors? Be sure to check Just For Toenails, the topical antifungal nail polish that comes in multiple colors.
