Description of Curanail
Curanail is a non-prescription medication with the generic name Amorolfine. It belongs to a group of medicines known as antifungals. Curanail is available in the form of a nail lacquer which is indicated to be applied topically. The medication is available in Curanail 5% lacquer strength. You may buy Curanail online if you suffer from fungal infections of the nails. The medication may cause side effects in some people, so consult your doctor before using it.
Indications & Dosage of Curanail
Curanail is used to treat fungal infections of the finger nails and toe nails that may be caused by different types of fungi. It is specifically used to treat fungal infections that affect the sides or upper half of the nail. Curanail is only effective in treatment of mild fungal infections that start at the tip of the nail and spread towards the base. The medication is only indicated for use in adults aged 18 years or above.
Amorolfine, the active ingredient in the medication, interferes with the cell membranes of fungi and yeast. It works by inhibiting the production of ergosterol, an important substance in fungal cell membranes. This disruption in production of ergosterol leads to damage or disruption in the formation of the fungal cell membrane. The fungal cell membrane is important for the survival of fungi. The cell membrane prevents the entry of foreign or unwanted substances into the cell and also prevents leaking of cell contents.
Curanail should be used only once a week. You need to file the infected nail before applying the lacquer. Clean the nail surface using a nail varnish or an alcohol swab. Dip the reusable applicator into the Curanail lacquer bottle. Wipe off the excess lacquer at the edge of the bottle. Apply an even layer of lacquer on the infected nail area. Let the nail lacquer dry for 3 minutes.
Side Effects & Interactions of Curanail
Like all other medicines, Curanail may also cause mild to severe side effects in some patients. However, not all people who use this medication experience side effects. As a matter of fact, many people who use Curanail do not complain about any side effects.
Curanail causes side effects in rare cases. Only 1 person in 1000 people may experience side effects after using Curanail. Some people may experience a burning sensation after applying Curanail lacquer. This burning sensation is temporary and generally wears off soon. If the burning sensation stays for a long time or becomes bothersome, you should consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Curanail may also cause separation of the nail from the nail bed or discoloration. Consult your doctor if any side effects become severe or you experience any side effects not mentioned above after using the medication.
When you use two medications concurrently, there are chances that both drugs may interact with each other and cause side effects. Curanail is applied topically to the nails, so it is less likely that it will interact with other medicines that are injected or taken orally. There are no reported drug interactions of Curanail at this point in time.
Warnings & Precautions of Curanail
You should not buy Curanail if you are hypersensitive to any ingredient in it. People with medical problems such as diabetes, weak immune system, or poor circulation in the feet or hands should consult their doctor before they buy Curanail.
