How to use Trosyl

Apply the nail solution thinly to cover the whole of the affected nail(s) and surrounding skin using the brush provided. Apply the solution every 12 hours.

Leave the solution to dry for 10-15 minutes after application.

The solution does not dry hard. A transparent, slightly greasy film is left on the nail. This film contains the antifungal agent and it slowly passes through the nail to reach the site of infection.

The film should be left intact as long as possible. This allows the antifungal agent to have maximum effect.

Try to avoid putting your hands (or feet if your toenails are affected) in soapy water immediately after applying the solution. Soap or detergent removes the film. Water alone does not remove the film.

If you need to wash anything by hand, it is best to wear rubber gloves.

It is usual for treatment to last for up to six months, and in some cases 12 months.

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
