Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment is an easy to use, all in one treatment system. It has been developed by experts at Scholl to offer consumers an alternative way of treating fungal nail infections. Topical treatments are a common and effective way of killing mild fungal nail before it progresses to severe or total nail plate destruction, at which point it is important to consult a healthcare professional.
Treating fungal nail can be frustrating as it is often a lengthy process and in many cases the infection will recur. It can also take a long time for the nail’s appearance to show any signs of improvement.
The all-in-one treatment from Scholl designed to ease this frustration. The easy-to-use device is scientifically proven to effectively kill nail fungus, help prevent the spread and recurrence of infection, and help improve the appearance of the nail.
It is a two-step treatment system, comprising of 5 disposable nail files along with an ‘Advanced Nail Liquid’ that has been developed to effectively treat fungal nail infections and help prevent the spread of infection and recurrence. The first step is the treatment phase, which kills the fungus in 4 weeks. The next step is the protection phase which lasts until the nail has grown-out to protect the nails against re-infection.
What causes fungal nail infections?
Fungal nail infection occurs when the nail structure (toenails or fingernails) becomes infected by a fungus. Nails are well protected from their environment by the cuticle together with the nails folds and hyponychium which help seal and protect the nail from invasion of foreign bodies (including bacterial or fungal infections). Slight damage to the nail’s protective structures, by trauma or disease, creates an entry portal for these bodies to invade. The infection may involve any part of the nail structure including the nail plate, nail bed or nail matrix.
What does it look like?
Fungal nail infections usually look unpleasant because the nail becomes thickened, discoloured (yellow, brown or white; patches, streaks or islands), flaky, brittle and uncomfortable.
Most fungal nail infections initially begin as mild infections affecting a small portion of the nail. However if left untreated, the infection could eventually spread to involve a larger portion of the nail, leading to a completely damaged nail or even the nail becoming detached.

How does Fungal Nail Treat work?
Phase 1: Treatment Phase (4 weeks).
To kill the nail fungus:
Week 1 - File the nail surface once a week.
Dispose of the file after use.
Apply the advanced liquid to the infected nail daily.
Repeat for weeks 2, 3 & 4.
Phase 2: Protection Phase (9 months).
To prevent spreading & protect from recurrence.
Apply the advanced liquid to the infected nail once a week for 9 months or until the discolouration has grown out.
What are the visible results?
At the end of the Treatment Phase the level of discolouration on the nail is reduced.
After 9-12 months which is the average length of time a human toenail takes to grow-out completely, the discolouration will have disappeared and nails will have recovered with no signs of fungal infection.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin. If irritation occurs, discontinue use. Always replace cap after use.
To avoid the spread of infection, never reuse files.
For external use only. Do not use on broken skin or any other foot conditions.
What are the symptoms?
Yelllow/brownish discolouration of the nail.
White 'islands' on the surface of the nail.
