WHAT IS EMTRIX®?
EMTRIX® is a topical treatment for nails affected by fungal nail infection or psoriasis. EMTRIX® smoothens out the nail surface and binds moisture into the nail. Fungus and bacteria attacks are countered through the nail’s microenvironment being altered, the nail surface strengthened and fungi that typically cause fungal nail infection being degraded.
HOW LONG MUST I USE EMTRIX® IN ORDER TO SEE RESULTS?
Emtrix® gives you healthier looking nails after only 1-2 weeks but the total treatment period is determined by the degree of severity and the extent of the nail’s discolouration/damage. Normally at least 3-6 months’ treatment is required to achieve a significant improvement. For best results, the treatment should be continued until a normal nail has grown out. So for healthy nails – start the treatment in time!
CAN I APPLY EMTRIX® WITHOUT BEING CERTAIN THAT IT IS NAIL FUNGUS?
Applying EMTRIX® does not require a doctor’s diagnosis and can be bought at a pharmacy without prescription. Through its keratolytic and hydrating effect EMTRIX® improves the nail’s appearance even if the discolouration or deformation is due to causes other than nail fungus, for example psoriasis. If the nail is affected by a fungal infection, EMTRIX® changes the nail’s microenvironment so that the nail fungus no longer can thrive and degrades the cells of the fungi.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE-EFFECTS OR INTERACTIONS ASSOCIATED WITH EMTRIX®?
A slight temporary irritation of adjacent skin as well as discolouration of the nail may occur. In certain cases, parts of the nail may loosen/separate from the underlying nail bed, which occasionally leads to detachment of the affected part of the nail. There are no known interactions with the preparation.
CAN I USE NAIL VARNISH DURING TREATMENT?
No, nail varnish prevents absorption of EMTRIX® and inhibits the desirable effects.
CAN EMTRIX® BE USED ON CHILDREN?
As for many other products, there is limited experience regarding use on children. Since no EMTRIX® studies on children have been conducted, we recommend consulting your doctor first.
CAN EMTRIX® BE USED WHEN PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING?
Yes, EMTRIX® only works locally.
HOW LONG DOES A TUBE OF EMTRIX® LAST?
This depends on how many nails require treatment but, in general, the tube lasts for approximately 4 months for treatment of a big toe nail.
IS THERE A RISK OF THE EMTRIX® TUBE BEING CONTAMINATED BY FUNGUS OR BACTERIA?
The tube has a valve which prevents fluid or other substances from contaminating the contents of the tube.
