FUNGUSS may or may not be effective when applied on top of a polished nail. There have been no tests conducted to prove so. Nail polishes are composed of varying chemicals and to make a generalization based on all nail polishes would be inaccurate. It is recommended to remove nail polish and lightly file infected nails prior to applications. If treatment area is not on the nail and is only close to the nail, it is best to apply to the affected areas where the adjacent nails have no nail polish; therefore, nail polish should be removed prior to each application of FUNGUSS. After application and area is fully dried, nail polish can be applied.

What is the difference between FUNGUSS and cosmetic nail renewal treatments?

FUNGUSS contains an antifungal drug ingredient to treat toe and foot fungus and is classified by FDA as an OTC drug product for treatment of fungal infections. Nail renewal treatments are cosmetic products marketed to improve the appearance of the nail and do not treat or prevent toe and foot fungus infection.

Why should I use a topical solution instead of other methods?

Topical treatments (including FUNGUSS) are generally best suited to treat mild to medium-high level infections of nail fungus. This type of treatment is extremely easy to use and has no adverse side effects. FUNGUSS is a wonderful blend of active ingredients and organic minerals, so we are not going to say that our product does not work on severe infections as well. However, some of the more severe cases of nail fungus can only be treated with more aggressive methods such as surgical methods, laser therapy, prescription medications and/or oral treatments. It is wise however, to consult with a podiatrist or medical professional before starting such treatments due to potential side effects. These methods can be dangerous to people with a pre-existing medical condition or compromised immune system, so FUNGUSS would be a beginning solution.

What is the best way to prevent recurrence?

Nail fungus is an extremely difficult problem to cure and infections can often return if treatment is not finished thoroughly. Be certain to continue treating with FUNGUSS toenail fungus treatment for at least a month beyond the time that the nail fungus is no longer visible. This should assure that even the deepest fungal agents are eliminated. From this point forward, it is extremely important to keep the previously infected areas as dry and clean as possible to keep the environment from attracting new fungal agents. If you detect even the slightest of nail fungal indicators, treat the area with FUNGUSS immediately and monitor the progress carefully.

If I have an existing medical condition is it safe to use FUNGUSS?

More than likely, a person taking prescription medications will be perfectly safe also treating a nail fungal infection with FUNGUSS. However, we are not physicians and strongly suggest that any potential customer of ours who is taking additional prescription medications consult with a medical professional prior to beginning treatment with FUNGUSS.
