How to use APORYL
APORYL is for external use only, do not swallow APORYL. Apply only to finger nails and toe nails, avoid the surrounding skin.
How to apply the nail lacquer:
Follow these instructions each time the lacquer is used
1. Place everything you need for the APORYL treatment within easy reach:
• APORYL nail lacquer.
• nail file (supplied).
• cleaning pad (supplied).
• reusable spatula (supplied).
First application of APORYL:
1. Before painting with APORYL nail lacquer, file down the infected areas of the nail (particularly the nail surfaces) as thoroughly as possible using the nail file. CAUTION: Nail files used on an infected nail must not be used on healthy nails.
2. Clean the surface of the infected nail with a cleaning pad. Put the cleaning pad aside, do not discard.
3. Dip one of the reusable spatulas into the lacquer. Do not wipe it on the neck of the bottle. Note: the spatula provides a measured dose of APORYL.
4. Using the spatula, paint APORYL nail lacquer over the entire surface of the infected nail.
5. When you have finished treating all of your infected nails, clean the spatula and the neck of the bottle with the same cleaning pad that was used during the treatment.
6. To avoid evaporation, close the bottle tightly.
7. Allow time for the nails to dry (3 to 5 minutes).
8. Discard used cleaning pad and nail file. Stow spatula and nail lacquer for next treatment.
Subsequent applications of APORYL: File the infected areas of the nail using the nail file as required to remove any remaining lacquer, ensure that you do not over-file to avoid damage to the nail and surrounding area. Repeat steps 3-9.
How often to apply APORYL
Paint APORYL once or twice weekly onto the infected fingernails or toenails or as otherwise directed by your doctor or pharmacist.
If you forget to paint on the APORYL nail lacquer, use it as soon as you remember. Then go
back to using APORYL as you would normally.
How long APORYL should be used
Treatment should be continued until the infected nails are completely cured and re-grown.
Usually, treatment of fungal infections of the nails takes around six months for the fingernails
and nine to twelve months for the toenails.
Don’t be discouraged if after several weeks of therapy no improvement is visible. A healthy nail only grows by approximately 2mm per month.
Because fungal nail infections are hard to treat, treatment may be required for 6-12 months or longer and a full cure cannot be expected in all cases. After 6 months of treatment, improvement can be expected in 70% to 80% of people, with full cure expected in approximately one in three people.
If symptoms persist or improvement is not observed, see your doctor or pharmacist.
In case of accidental swallowing
Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre (Australia 13 11 26, New Zealand 0800 POISON or 0800 764 766) for advice or go to Accident and Emergency at your nearest hospital if you think that you or anyone else may have swallowed APORYL, even if there are no signs of discomfort or poisoning. You may need urgent medical attention.
