3) Loceryl Nail Lacquer

Creams and lotions are usually not effective against nail fungus because nails are too hard for these applications to penetrate.

De-regulated from POM to now Pharmacy item, Loceryl is a medicated nail lacquer proven for treating nail fungus. It contains the active ingredient amorolfine to kill the fungus. If more than 2 nails are involved, oral medications from doctor may be needed.


The nail lacquer should be pplied once or twice a week. Each time you reapply the lacquer you should swap the nail to remove any old lacquer first and file the nail surface. Treatment should be continued without interruption until the nail is regenerated and the affected areas are cured. In general, treatment duration is 6 months for fingernails and 9-12 months for toenails.
