How To Use Emtrix

Hold the point of the tube onto the nail and press lightly.
Apply a thin layer over the entire nail surface, including under the free edge of the nail.
Leave to dry for a few minutes.
Duration of treatment varies according to the initial severity of the condition and the extent of the nail s discolouration/damage.

For optimal result, the treatment should be continued until a normal nail has grown out.
Store between 2° and 25°C. Protect from sunlight and freezing.
For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes or mucous membranes. Do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. Keep out of reach of children.
Nail fungus is a common problem that increases as you age. Diagnosis is made by a doctor with the help of culture or microscopy and many people have nail fungus without knowing it. The condition, which is contagious, starts in one nail and gradually spreads to more nails. It is usually the nails on the feet that are affected but fungus on fingernails can also occur. Nail fungus thrives best in warm, damp environments. Visiting places where people gather, such as swimming pools, public showers and changing rooms, can involve a risk of infection. Warm and tight shoes also help the fungus to thrive. Nail fungus is, therefore, very common among sportsmen with as many as 8 out of 10 being affected.
Nail Fungus Symptoms
The fungus grows slowly and often displays slight symptoms to begin with. Nail fungus is characterised by the nails layers becoming ridged and brittle. The nail gradually becomes discoloured, thickened and cracks or flakes off. The infected nail can fall off if it is not treated. Nail fungus can, in certain cases, be painful.
Psoriasis can occur on several parts of the body. Around 80 % of all those with psoriasis also have nail problems (nail psoriasis). The most common nail changes are discolouration and small holes/pits in the nail. The nails can also thicken and loosen from the nail bed. Occasionally, it can be difficult to ascertain whether these nail changes are caused by psoriasis or by, e.g., nail fungus.
