Like other imidazole antifungal drugs, it has an antifungal (fungistatic and fungicidal) effect, damaging the cell membrane of fungi due to impaired sterol synthesis.
Applied externally (in the form of varnish) for the treatment and prevention of fungal infections of the nails (onychomycosis) caused by dermatophytes, yeast and mold fungi, actinomycetes, as well as for the treatment of skin candidiasis.
Varnish is applied using the attached spatulas to the nails of the hands and feet 1-2 times a week. Before use, the affected areas are removed with a file and wiped with a cotton swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol. Subsequently, the procedure is carried out in the same sequence. Treatment continues until new nails grow. With lesions of the nails of the hands, the course of treatment usually lasts up to 6 months, with lesions of the nails of the legs - up to 12 months.
When applying varnish, a burning sensation is possible.
The drug is not prescribed for children.
To avoid varnish washing off in case of contact (work) with organic solvents, waterproof gloves should be worn.
Release form: 5% nail polish in bottles of 2.5 and 5 ml (complete with one-time files, spatulas and tampons).
