Maintaining the appearance of your manicure and pedicure requires more than cosmetics because many manicure procedures can enhance the risk of fungal infection. FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Professional Formula Liquid is a maximum strength anti-fungal, specifically formulated for those who manicure, pedicure or use artificial nails.
FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Liquid is highly effective against common skin and cuticle area fungal infections, which can migrate to the nails. FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Liquid’s convenient applicator brush allows for controlled, easily targeted application of anti-fungal medicine directly and neatly to the site of infection. FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Liquid dries fast and thoroughly, avoiding the mess and excess spreading so often associated with creams and "drop-on" liquids. With FUNGICURE, fingers need never touch infected areas. FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Liquid is crystal clear and leaves no residue or unpleasant medicinal odor.
Fungal infections of the finger and toe areas present a special risk for those who manicure, pedicure or wear artificial nails. Many manicure procedures can enhance the risk of fungal infection. Certain types of artificial nails can trap moisture and fungi, providing a perfect environment in which fungus can grow and spread. Cutting cuticles can create opportunities for fungal infections. Treating fungal infections on cuticles and nearby skin surfaces helps greatly reduce the risk of it spreading and attacking healthy nails.
Why does the label for FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure Anti-Fungal Liquid say "not effective on scalp or nails"?The active ingredient in FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure has been recognized to be safe and effective by an FDA Expert Advisory Panel when used as directed. It works to eliminate fungus infections on the skin around and adjacent to the nail and under the nail tips where reachable with the applicator brush. The FDA requires the statement "not effective on the scalp or nails" to appear on all over the counter anti-fungal products because the FDA has concluded that “such infections respond poorly to topical therapy, partly because of the depth of the hair roots and the thickness of the nails”. The FDA considers the nails to be a hard surface not penetrable by OTC topical medications. Fungus can infect the entire nail area of fingers and toes. This includes the surrounding skin, the nail beds and the nails surfaces themselves, commonly referred to as the nail plates. While an intact nail plate, being a hard surface, is not penetrable by OTC topical applications, there are instances where nail plates are not intact and are actually cracked open, breached or partially separated from the nail bed. There are also instances where fungal infections reside on skin around and adjacent to the nail plate, on the cuticles, and under the exposed quick of the nail. In these instances where the fungus is exposed, FUNGICURE Manicure & Pedicure, with its powerful anti-fungal action, applied as directed, may be able to reach the site of the infection by direct application, eliminating the fungus and allowing for re-growth of healthy tissue.
