Canesten® Extra Fungal Nail Set

Canesten® Extra Fungal Nail Set is designed to fight nail fungus fast.

An antifungal cream may not get to the root of the problem and treatment with antifungal nail lacquer can take months to bring visible results.
The Canesten Extra 2-phase treatment treats fungal nail effectively in only 6 weeks! The phase 1 with Canesten Extra Nail Set keeps fungus under control and softens the infected part of the nail to help its gentle and painless removal, whilst keeping the healthy part of the nail intact. The phase 2 follow-up treatment with Canesten Extra cream ensures the root of the infection is killed in the nailbed for thorough treatment.

What is nail fungus?

Medically known as onychomycosis, it's the same type of infection as athlete's foot. You can get infected in warm, moist such as pools, gyms, public showers or via contact with unsterilised nail equipment in beauty salons.

Good to know!

Nail fungus may feel uncomfortable and look odd, but in most cases there's nothing to worry about and it can be treated effectively.

Common symptoms of skin fungus

  • White or yellow streaks on the nail
  • Thick or brittle nail, loss of shine
  • Change in nail shape and crumbling or jagged edges
  • Loosening or lifting up of the nail
  • Debris trapped under the nail

How to use?

Step 1
Apply a thin layer of the ointment on the affected nail after soaking your foot for 10 min.

Step 2
Cover the nail with a plaster and leave it on for 24 hours.

Step 3
After removing the plaster soak your foot again and use the plastic spatula to gently remove the softened part of the nail. Don't worry, it is a painless procedure. Only the infected part will be removed, the healthy part of your nail will remain intact.

Repeat the process each day for 2 weeks until the infected part of the nail is fully removed.

Don’t forget!
After nail removal continue the follow-up treatment with Canesten® Extra Antifungal Cream for 4 weeks.

When you have
fungal nail

Fungal nail infection is a common condition. It's not serious and not the end of the world, but the symptoms are annoying and can be even more so if the infection lingers or comes back. That’s why you shouldn’t ignore it:

A fungal infection won’t go on its own. Treat it, don’t hide it.

An infection doesn’t disappear just because symptoms do. Antifungal treatment needs 3-4 weeks to be completely effective.

Start treatment sooner rather than later to fight fungus more effectively.

If untreated, athlete’s foot can spread to other parts of your body and cause other types of skin fungus or fungal nail.

Care about your
loved ones

Athlete’s foot is very contagious. It not only easily spreads to other parts of your body, but also to other people. Your loved ones are especially susceptible, but there are a few things you can do:
