What is Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment
Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment is a treatment for fungal nail infections which works to kill nail fungus while preventing the spread of infection to your other nails. Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment is discreet and simple to use, protecting your nail and helping a healthy nail to grow back in its place.
What are fungal nail infections?
Fungal nail infections happen when a fungus manages to invade the underside of your nail, starting at the edge of the nail and spreading inwards as the fungus grows. It can make your nail discoloured and brittle, sometimes making the nail come away from the nail bed. This can be quite painful, leaving you looking for a way to treat the infection and heal your nail.
How does Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment work?
Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment uses an advanced formula which penetrates your nail, helping to provide treatment inside and out. It helps to make your nail look healthier and stops the infection from coming back.
How long does this treatment take to work?
The entirety of your Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment will take 9 months to complete, however, you will start to see visible results after the first phase of treatment has completed. This will take 4 weeks, and by this time the level of discolouration on your nail will be reduced. In the following months, you will be protecting your nail as the remaining infection grows out, leaving healthy nail underneath.
