Scholl Fungal Nail Treatment
Most nail-fungus treatments don't work as you might expect. If you
read the labels
you'll see that they don't penetrate the nail and therefore do not reach the
fungus, and they make no claims about curing nail fungus. Scholl
Fungal Nail Treatment, on the other hand, claims to cure 99.9% of
nail fungus. Furthermore it says right on the box that it has been
“specially formulated to penetrate into the nail and to kill
nail fungus at its source”. Why is this product so different?
Evidently because it is made in Britain, and not sold in the USA.

The vial has a small bottle antifungal liquid (3.8ml), a dispenser for
disposable nail files, and a brush applicator. You file the surface of your
nails once a week to make them thinner (discarding the file — never
use a file more than once on fungal nails) and you apply the liquid every
day with the brush. The first phase of the treatment repeats this process
for four weeks. In practice, however, the liquid might run out sooner. In
the second phase, the liquid is applied to the nails once a week for 9
months or until the discoloration has grown out, which usually takes between
six to twelve months.
Bearing in mind that no product works exactly the same way for everybody,
at Amazon.co.uk are very encouraging.
According to my tester, so far the treatment works better than anything
else he has tried. On the strength of the initial results he ordered some
more units of the product and when enough time has gone by, he will make
a final report, complete with photos. Initial results after six weeks are
shown at right (you can click the image to enlarge it). You can see the
yellow old growth at the end of the nail, and the ragged edge caused by
the destructive action of the fungus, and a pinkish area behind it. The
significance of the white band below the pink area is not yet known.
This is also after several years of treatment with Tea
Tree Oil and other various US brand anti-fungal treatments. Prior to
that the nails were thick and solid yellowish white; the yellow portion that
you see here is an improvement over that, but the pink area is new with the
Scholl treatment. The flip-flops, by the way, are from
Reef, very comfortable and durable (see
reviews), highly recommended, especially since keeping your toes in the
open air as much as possible is part of the treatment.
By the way, the little disposable files that come with the Scholl treatment
are a bit skimpy. You can order some large, extremely abrasive (100/100
grit), heavy-duty disposable files here.
