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 to treat fungal nail
Fungal Nail can be a distressing and embarrassing condition and without treatment fungal nail will not improve and could eventually spread to involve a larger portion of the nail, which is why Scholl has developed Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment. Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment is an effectively designed system for the treatment of mild fungal nail. The treatment phase lasts 4 weeks after which the level of discolouration on the nail is reduced. The protection phase lasts until the nail grows out and helps to prevent the spread of fungus and protects against recurrence. It’s discrete, easy to use and has been specially formulated to penetrate into the nail and kill nail fungus at its source. So don’t be embarrassed to bare your toes – choose Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment.
You MUST read the instruction leaflet carefully before use.
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.
The appearance of the nail is rougher, more brittle and with ridges.
What happens if it is not treated?
In most cases the nail will eventually crumble and become detached from the toe or finger.
Scholl and diabetes.
Please SEEK ADVICE before use if you have diabetes as your foot condition may require treatment by a healthcare professional.

Fungal Nail Symptoms
What are the first signs of fungal nail infection?
A fungal nail infection usually begins as a small white or yellow spot under the nail but can spread to discolour the nail, turning it white, yellow, brown green or black. The infected nail can thicken and may become misshapen, losing its flexibility and becoming dry and brittle. The appearance of the nail can be rougher and have ridges.
Can a fungal nail infection spread onto more than one toe?
Nail fungus is highly contagious and can spread to adjacent toenails, the skin around the nail and even to fingernails via any form of direct contact. A fungal toenail infection often occurs as a secondary infection to athlete’s foot, as the fungus spreads from the skin between the toes to the toenail itself.
Does a thickened or detached toenail hurt?
If left untreated, a fungal nail infection can cause the nail to thicken and distort, eventually drying out and detaching from the nail bed. The thick, distorted nail can become a source of discomfort when walking, and as the toenail begins to separate from the nail bed, it can become painful.
Fungal Nail Prevention
How can I avoid getting a fungal nail infection from other people?
A common place for a fungal nail infection to spread are public swimming pools, showers, changing rooms, spas etc, where it’s warm and damp underfoot. Always make a point of wearing flipflops/ pool slippers in these situations, so that you can keep your feet clear of the damp environment where the fungus thrives. Avoid sharing towels or footwear, especially trainers.
Can my choice of footwear affect whether I get a fungal nail infection?
Wearing socks made of natural fibres (100 per cent cotton) and leather shoes will allow your feet to ‘breathe’ and thus reduce the build-up of moisture that the fungi love. Try to alternate footwear day by day as fungal spores can live for a long time in shoes. The golden rule is to always keep your feet as fresh and dry as possible. If you do get your socks and shoes damp, change out of them as soon as possible and dry your feet thoroughly.
What can I do to prevent a fungal nail infection from spreading?
Treat a fungal nail infection as soon as possible to prevent the infection spreading and always dry your feet thoroughly, taking care to dry between your toes. Always wash your hands after treating an infected nail, sterilise any tools you use to treat your feet, by immersing the tools in boiling water or wiping with a disinfectant cloth, and avoid using nail polish or false nails during treatment.
