A WORD ABOUT FUNGICURE ANTI-FUNGAL LIQUID:
With your purchase of FUNGICURE, you have chosen a highly effective and remarkably convenient treatment for common fungus infection of the finger and toe areas, including on skin around and adjacent to the nails where normally accessible with the FUNGICURE applicator brush. FUNGICURE's convenient applicator brush allows for controlled, easily targeted application so medicine may be applied directly and neatly to where the infection is, avoiding the mess and excess spreading of creams, ointments or "drop on" liquids... Furthermore, with FUNGICURE your fingers need never touch affected areas. FUNGICURE is a crystal clear liquid which dries fast without messy residue or medicinal odour.
WHAT IS FUNGUS INFECTION OF THE FINGER AND TOE AREAS?
Generally speaking, common fungus infections of the finger and toe areas (topical infections) are caused by a variety of fungi; actual living organisms (members of the yeast and mold family) which exist in varying degrees, at all times in nature, and tend to thrive in dark, damp and moist conditions...in the soil...on animals as well as humans. These organisms may penetrate the skin's surface through even the smallest crack or tear, may be spread from animals to humans and may be spread among humans. Once infection starts, spreading may occur among body parts...one toe to another...or finger to finger. There are a number of specific types, each of which can potentially infect body tissue and proceed to grow unless treated appropriately with an effective anti-fungal medicine. Common topical fungi infectives generally fall into three categories: microsporum (hair and skin), epidermophyton (skin and nails), and trichophyton (hair, skin and nails). Among the more common fungi are E. floccosum which can cause ringworm infection and affects the body, hands and feet, on and in between the fingers including the skin around the fingernails; also T. rubrum and T. mentagrophytes which can cause athlete's foot and infect the feet, on and between the toes including the skin around the toenails. Often such infections develop slowly and may be difficult to treat if not attended to promptly.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TOPICAL FUNGUS INFECTION?
Some topical infections may present themselves on the skin as ring like formations with clear centers, commonly referred to as ringworm. Other such infections, when on the skin or finger and toe areas, are often characterized by scaling of skin, burning, cracking, itching and related discomforts. NOTE: If you believe you may have any type of fungus infection, do not delay consulting a doctor for advice. You may wish to show him/her FUNGICURE Liquid and discuss its use.
HOW FUNGICURE LIQUID WORKS; PRODUCT DESCRIPTION AND ACTION:
Undecylenic acid in FUNGICURE is a widely recognized, proven anti-fungal ingredient effective against fungi such as E. floccosum, T. mentagrophytes and T. rubrum, which are known to cause topical infections of the body, hands and feet, on and between the fingers and toes, including the skin and cuticle around the nails.
HOW TO AVOID RECURRENCE OF FUNGUS INFECTION:
- Keep hands and feet meticulously clean and dry, since fungus enjoys and thrives on moisture. Good personal hygiene is your first line of defense against recurring fungus infections.
- In cases where athlete's foot (tinea pedis) has been a problem, wear well ventilated shoes and change to clean socks daily.
- Avoid any practices that can tear or bruise the skin. Avoid trimming and avoid cutting nails too close. Anything that tears or opens the
skin invites fungus to invade. Be very observant for early signs of recurrence and don't hesitate to take prompt action with Fungicure following package directions carefully.
