What is Curanail?  

Curanail fungal nail treatment is a medication used once weekly to treat fungal nail infections (onychomycosis). An infection can cause your nails to become thick and colourless, and in some cases can cause mild pain or discomfort. Curanail works to kill the fungi that causes this infection, allowing for the healthy nail to grow back. 

How effective is Curanail?  

This treatment is very effective when used correctly over an extended period. It is important to use the treatment as directed until the infection is completely gone to ensure full growth of the healthy nail. Not doing so can risk the fungal infection coming back. Complete treatment can take around 6 months for fingernails, or 9 to 12 months for toenails.

Treatment Timeline  

1 to 3 months

Using Curanail once a week as directed, will allow Curanail to infiltrate the nail allowing it to start killing the fungus. 

3 to 6 months

As treatment of the infection continues, you may start to see the growth of the healthy nail below. Continuous use of the treatment as directed will allow the new nail to grow back properly and reduce the risk of re-infection. 

6 to 9 months

Continuing the use of Curanail will improve the health of the new nail as it grows. You will now notice the infected nail growing out. The discolouration and thickness should also now be reducing as the new, healthy nail replaces the old one. 

9 to 12 months

The infected area should now have completely disappeared and replaced with a new healthier nail. This process can take less time when treating fingernails.

Curanail dosage instructions

You should apply the treatment once a week until the infection has cleared. 

How long does Curanail take to work? 

Complete treatment can take around 6 months for fingernails and 9 to 12 months for toenails.
