How should I use Ciclopoli against nail fungus?
Apply Ciclopoli against nail fungus once a day on the entire nail surface of the affected nails as well as 5 mm of the surrounding skin. The nails should be clean and dry. Let the active ingredient-containing nail polish dry for about 30 seconds. After application, the treated nails should not be washed for at least 6 hours.
