Canespro Fungal Nail Treatment Set – shortest fungal nail treatment - treat for only 2-3 weeks. Unique fungal nail treatment from the makers of Canesten. Treat only for 2-3 weeks to get rid of the infected parts of the nail. Clinically proven to be effective, with visible changes to the treated nails within a few days of application
Canespro Fungal Nail Treatment offers the shortest treatment for mild to moderate fungal nail infection. It is suitable for toe and finger nails.

Canespro set consists of:

  • One 10g urea ointment tube (40% urea)
  • 22 specially designed waterproof plasters
  • One plastic scraper
The urea ointment selectively softens the parts of the nail infected by the fungus, leaving healthy parts of the nail intact. The plasters are used to cover the urea ointment applied to the nail. The scraper is used to remove the softened infected parts of the nail.

Treatment with Canespro urea ointment should be carried out carefully every day and should be continued until no more infected parts of the nail can be removed. This usually takes 2-3 weeks, depending on the extent of the fungal nail infection and the thickness of the nail.

After the infected parts of the nail are removed, follow on treatment with an antifungal cream is recommended which is available from your pharmacist.

How to use

Step 1:

Before applying the ointment, the affected hand or foot should be soaked in warm water for approximately 10 minutes. Dry thoroughly.

Apply the ointment to the surface of the infected nail once daily.

Apply enough to cover the infected nail areas with a thin layer.

Step 2:

To cover the infected nail with a plaster, gently place half the plaster over the treated nail then fold over the sides of the plaster around the toe or finger and press. For smaller fingernails or toenails, cut the plaster in half.

Take care not to touch the sticky surface of the plaster with your fingers or with the ointment as this will help it stick better.

Fold over the other half of the plaster over the back of your toe or finger.

Again, fold over the sides of the plaster around the toe or finger and press. The plaster will fit like a protective cap over the affected nail.

Step 3:

Remove the plaster after 24 hours and soak the nail in warm water for approximately 10 minutes.

After soaking, remove the softened infected parts of the nail using the plastic nail scraper. Hold the plastic nail scraper firmly by gripping the broad handle (smooth and blunt end) only. Use the sharpened and serrated edge for scraping.

Clean the scraper with water thoroughly after each use. Keep the plastic nail scraper until treatment is complete.

Dry the treated nail(s) thoroughly. Canespro Urea Ointment and a fresh plaster should be applied daily for 2-3 weeks, as described in steps 1, 2 and 3.

Follow-up treatment after nail removal:

After the infected parts of the nail are removed complete the treatment with an antifungal cream available from your pharmacist.
