Fungal nail infections are one of the more common problems affecting the feet. Onychomycosis - the medical name for a fungal nail infection - affects toenails more often than fingernails and causes nails to become brittle and discoloured.
These infections, however, can be effectively treated using antifungal nail lacquers. These treatments contain the active ingredient amorolfine hydrochloride and work by disrupting the growth of the fungi causing the infection.
As one of the UK’s trusted online pharmacies, the fungal nail infection treatments we stock are approved by the Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). See our full range here.

Fungal infections are the overgrowth of fungi feeding by breaking down tissue that is usually tough and waterproof such as keratin-containing skin, hair or nails.
The fungi that cause the infection thrive in the warm and moist environment. You are more likely to get a fungal infection if you have a weak immune system, an underlying illness (eg diabetes and psoriasis), you walk barefoot in a fungi contaminated area, or even if you wear clothes and shoes that make you hot and sweaty.
You can minimise the chance of getting the infection by keeping clean and wearing clothes or shoes that fit comfortably and preferably in a material that allows your body or feet to ‘breathe’, such as cotton.
Amorolfine (branded as Loceryl/Curanail) is used to treat fungal nail.
There are different forms of fungal infections, depending on the site of the fungal overgrowth.
