How to use Loceryl Loceryl is intended for external use only. Loceryl should not be swallowed.
Carefully follow the steps below before using Loceryl:
1. Place everything you need for the Loceryl treatment within easy reach:
- Loceryl nail lacquer.
- nail file (supplied).
- cleaning pad (supplied).
- reusable spatula (supplied).
2. 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.
3. Clean the surface of the infected nail with a cleaning pad.
4. 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.
5. Using the spatula, paint Loceryl nail lacquer over the entire surface of the infected nail.
6. Close the bottle tightly immediately after painting the infected nail.
7. Repeat steps 2, 3, 4 and 5 for each nail.
8. Allow time for the nails to dry (3 to 5 minutes).
9. Clean the spatula and the neck of the bottle with the same cleaning pad that was used for cleaning the infected nail(s).
Note: Before next painting with Loceryl nail lacquer, the infected nails must be re-filed down (as required). The infected nails must also be re-cleaned with a new cleaning pad to remove any of the old lacquer
How often to apply Loceryl
Paint Loceryl once or twice weekly on the infected fingernails or toenails or as otherwise directed by your doctor, podiatrist or pharmacist.
If you forget to paint on the Loceryl nail lacquer, use it as soon as you remember. Then go back to using Loceryl as you would normally.
How long Loceryl should be used?
Treatment should be continued until the infected nails are completely cured and regrown.
Usually, treatment of fungal infections of the nails takes around six months for the fingernails and nine to twelve months for the toenails.
Don't be discouraged if after several weeks of therapy no improvement is visible. A healthy nail only grows by approximately 2mm per month.
In case of accidental swallowing
Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre or advice or go to Accident and Emergency at your nearest hospital if you think that you or anyone else may have swallowed Loceryl, even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. You may need urgent medical attention.
