Cures Finger and Toe Area Fungal Infections
Kills 6 Types of Fungus on Exposed Nail-Beds
WHAT IS FUNGUS INFECTION OF THE FINGER AND TOES?
Common topical fungus infections of the fingers and toes are caused by a variety of fungi; actual living organisms (members of the yeast and mold family) which thrive in dark, moist conditions. Using small breaches in the skin's surface, these organisms can cause infection by contact with infected surfaces, animals or people. Once infection starts, spreading may occur. For example, infected fingers and toes may infect other fingers and toes. Although such infections often develop slowly, they may be difficult to eliminate if not treated promptly with an effective anti-fungal medicine like FUNGICURE.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TOPICAL FUNGUS INFECTION?
Some topical fungal infections may present themselves on the skin surface as ring-like formations with clear centers; this is commonly called ringworm. Athlete's foot fungus and jock itch fungus, when in the finger and toe areas, are often characterized by scaling of skin, burning, cracking, itching, and related discomforts. When nails become infected, they may appear to become opaque (cloudy white), thickened, brittle, easily broken, and in some cases, discolored (greenish/brown).
UNDERSTANDING AND TREATING A NAIL AREA INFECTION:
Fungal infections of the nail areas are often caused by the same fungi that lead to athlete's foot, jock itch, and ringworm infections elsewhere on the body. These fungi can infect the entire area around the nails including the cuticles, the nail beds, and even the nails themselves. When infected finger/toe nails are intact, over-the-counter topical anti-fungal treatments may not be able to penetrate the nail and kill the fungus; this is why all OTC topical treatments must indicate they are not effective on the nails. However, in instances of advanced infection, the nails often are not not intact; they may be missing, cracked open or lifted away, exposing the infected nail bed. In these instances FUNGICURE Intensive, with its powerful anti-fungal formula, can reach and kill nail bed fungus by direct application or related capillary action. FUNGICURE cures the infection, allowing the natural regrowth of healthy looking tissue.
NOTE: Fungal infections which are isolated beneath an intact nail or embedded within the nail itself may require consultation from a doctor for proper treatment.
HOW FUNGICURE INTENSIVE WORKS:
MAXIMUM STRENGTH FUNGICURE Intensive contains Clotrimazole, a widely recognized anti-fungal ingredient that has been proven to be effective aginst 6 types of fungus such as E. floccosum, T. mentagrophytes, M. canis, M. gypseum, T. tonsurans and T. rubrum.
When applied as directed, FUNGICURE Intensive acts promptly to target, destroy, and prevent the spread of infection by inhibiting the growth and reproduction of fungal cells.
PROMPT ACTION AND PROPER TREATMENT:
Early treatment of fungal infections is important. If you suspect that you may have a fungal infection, consult your doctor promptly for advice and proper diagnosis. You may wish to show him/her FUNGICURE Intensive and discuss its use. For best results, once treatment is started with FUNGICURE Intensive, it is important to carefully follow the treatment instructions on the package until satisfactory results are achieved or advised further by a doctor.
NOTE: Noticeable improvement may be expected within 4 weeks in the case of most ringworm (tinea corporis) and athlete's foot (tinea pedis), two weeks for most jock itch (tinea cruris). Consult your doctor for advice if noticeable improvement is not eveident by this time or if condition persists or worsens.
