Fungal nail infections, also known as onychomycosis, are caused by an overgrowth of fungi that breaks down the nail tissue, causing the nail to become brittle and discoloured.

Fungal nail can be effectively treated by using antifungal nail lacquers that contain the active ingredient amorolfine hydrochloride which works by disrupting the growth of the fungi causing the infection.

What is a fungal infection?

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.

What causes fungal infections?

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.

How can I prevent it?

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.

What are the treatments for fungal nail infections?

Amorolfine (branded as Loceryl/Curanail) is used to treat fungal nail.

What are the common types of fungal infections?

There are different forms of fungal infections, depending on the site of the fungal overgrowth.

  • Ringworm is a ring-like red rash on the skin or scalp
  • Athlete’s foot causes red, itchy and scaly skin on the foot
  • Thrush is characterised by a red, itchy and swollen vagina or vulva
  • Fungal nail causes thickened and discoloured nails on hands and feet
