What is a fungal nail infection?
Nail fungus is an infection of the nails, usually caused by filamentous fungi (dermatophytes). Filamentous fungi are usually also the cause of athlete's foot. The pathogen can therefore easily infect the nails and vice versa. The fungus often settles under the nail plate or in cavities of the nail plate.
Since the pathogen prefers a moist environment, the nail fungus occurs much more frequently on the toenails than on the fingernails.

How do I recognize nail fungus?
The first thing nail fungus sufferers usually notice is a change
Nail color: Whitish, yellow or brownish spots indicate that a fungus has established itself under the nail plate. The horny substance loses its natural shine and transparency. If the nail fungus is not treated, the structure and shape of the nail also changes: the nail plate becomes brittle, brittle and thickens.
Over time, the infection can lead to complete nail destruction.

How does nail fungus develop?
Like all fungi, the pathogens of the nail fungus prefer a warm, humid environment.
That is why public swimming pools, saunas, showers, changing rooms and hotel rooms, but also the family environment, are the main sources of infection.
However, not everyone who comes into contact with the pathogen develops nail fungus. Only under certain conditions, eg if the nail has been damaged or the cuticle is injured, does a fungal infection occur. Elderly people, diabetics and people with a weakened immune system are at risk.

Favorable conditions for a fungal infection of the nails can be:
• The presence of a athlete's foot infection
• Circulatory disorders
• Frequent wearing of airtight shoes
(sports shoes, rubber boots)

CICLOCUTAN, nail polish athlete’s foot and toenail fungus  can affect almost anyone!
Fungal infections of the nails are a common problem affecting large parts of the population. In Germany alone, about every 8th person is affected. It is particularly important to take fungal nail infections seriously and treat them for two reasons: they do not heal on their own and they are contagious.
Consistent treatment can prevent the nail from being destroyed more and more or the fungus from being transferred to neighboring nails.

Who is particularly affected?

"I like to jog. What very few people know: our toenails are also very stressed here. The toes often rub against the shoe again and again. This often leads to the smallest injuries through which fungi can penetrate the nail. And mushrooms feel particularly comfortable in sweaty shoes.”

“We pay a lot of attention to the health of our feet. With age, the skin becomes thinner and therefore more prone to injury. This favors a foot and nail fungal infection.”

“We like to go to the swimming pool. Fungi love warm, humid climates and many people go barefoot, which makes it easier for them to spread and spread.
To protect ourselves from athlete’s foot and toenail fungus, we always put on bathing shoes.”

“As a diabetic, I have to take extra care of my feet and toes. Due to circulatory problems, I am particularly prone to foot and nail fungus. The increased blood sugar also promotes this, as this is a good source of energy for fungi.”

How can I treat nail fungus?
Since nail fungus diseases do not heal by themselves, there are numerous medications available for their treatment that inhibit the growth of the fungi or kill the fungi in different ways.
Usually, if you have a nail fungus infection, the doctor recommends an antifungal nail polish (antifungal = antifungal agent) that is applied directly to the diseased nails if no more than 50% of the nail is affected.
If the fungal infestation is already very extensive, it may be necessary to take prescription antimycotics (tablets, capsules) in addition to the antimycotic nail polish.

Ciclocutan ® nail polish is easy to use and waterproof. These qualities support you in everyday life. Already in the morning while showering, active during sport and at work as well as while swimming.

Frequently asked questions and answers - FAQ

What can cause nail fungus?
Favorable conditions for a fungal infection of the nails can be:
• The presence of an athlete's foot infection
• Circulatory disorders
• Frequent wearing of airtight or tight shoes (sports shoes, rubber boots)

How can nail fungus be treated?
Nail fungus should always be treated with an antifungal nail polish, such as Ciclocutan ® nail polish. If the nail is severely affected (more than 50%), it may be necessary to take additional tablets. An antifungal nail polish is available in pharmacies without a prescription. Nail fungus tablets require a prescription and must be prescribed by a doctor.

What are the symptoms of nail fungus?
• Toenails and/or fingernails lose their shine.
• Yellowish, white or brown discoloration on the nails.
• The nail becomes thicker and more brittle.
• Can become painful in the area around the nail.

Is there nail fungus on toenails and fingernails?
The toenails are most commonly affected, although fingernails are occasionally affected. The fungus enters the nail bed at the fingertip and spreads. The symptoms are the same as on toenails: the nail loses its shine, turns yellow, becomes more brittle and thicker.
