Prevention

Nail fungus is contagious. The pathogens that cause nail fungus thrive in warm, damp places. To prevent further infections, be sure to take the following measures, even after you've successfully treated your infection with Loceryl® nail lacquer.

Prevention

Avoid going barefoot

Avoid going barefoot, especially at swimming pools and in changing rooms. Nail fungus is highly contagious. Prevent infections by wearing flip-flops in wet zones and sports areas. Those already affected by nail fungus should always wear shoes at home unless they live alone.

Prevention

Treat nail fungus immediately

Nail fungus is a very persistent condition. The sooner you recognise nail fungus and take action, the faster your condition – athlete's foot or fingernail fungus – will be eliminated. Find out if you are already suffering from nail fungus. Take the self-check now, or ask our team of experts.

The pathogens that cause nail fungus often enter the body through fine cracks in the skin. Be sure to moisturise the skin on your feet and hands regularly with a cream of your choice. Athletes and people with diabetes are at a particularly high risk of contracting a fungal nail infection.
