Lacquer "Tsiklozhen" for the treatment and prevention of nail fungus. The components of the composition penetrate deeply directly into the nail plate and work localized at the site of infection. The nail polish is easy to use, dries quickly and is not visible on the nails. It has an antibacterial effect.
Indications for use (instruction): Tsiklozhen
Tsiklozhen is recommended for fungal diseases of the nails (onychomycosis).
- The active substance ciclopirox penetrates directly into the nail plate, where it has antifungal effects on the most common causative agents of fungal infections of the nails.
- The antifungal effect of ciclopirox is based on the inhibition of the entry into the cell and the induction of the withdrawal from the cell of the components necessary for its vital activity.
- It has antibacterial action against gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens.
How to use
- For the treatment of nail fungus, a thin layer of antifungal varnish Cyclopen is applied on the affected nails every other day during the first month. This ensures the saturation of the nail with the active substance.
- In the second month of application, the frequency of application should be reduced to two times a week.
- From the third month - apply varnish once a week.
Before use, remove as much as possible of the tissue of the affected nail with scissors or special nail files. Clean the surface of the nails with an alcohol swab. Apply Cyclosed evenly over the entire surface of the affected nail. Immediately after applying the lacquer, clean the bone with a spirit swab so that it can be used again. Close the bottle tightly so that the varnish does not dry. The duration of treatment depends on the degree of infection, but should not exceed 6 months without consulting a doctor.
Before starting treatment, it is recommended to remove the free (distal) edge of the affected nails with nippers, a file or nail scissors.
During the treatment, once a week, the layer formed on the surface of the nail must be removed with a nail polish remover, as in the long term this can interfere with the penetration of the active substance. Simultaneous removal of the free edge of the affected nails is recommended.
Treatment should be continued until healthy nail growth is observed and complete recovery from a clinical and mycological point of view.
Control of the fungal culture must be done 4 weeks after the end of treatment in order to avoid an error in the result due to a possible residue of the active substance.
Since the drug is used for topical treatment, different dosages are not available for special populations.
If therapy with Cyclozhen does not affect the condition of the lesion and / or one or more nails of the hands or feet have a severe condition of the lesion, additional oral treatment may be appropriate.
Treatment usually lasts about 3 (hand nail onychomycosis) and 6 (toe nail onychomycosis) months. The duration of treatment should not exceed 6 months.
