Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common problem that affects the nail plate and sometimes the underlying nail bed, leading to discoloured, thickened and cracked nails.
Onychomycosis is the most common nail disease. Approximately 10% of the general population and 20% of the population over 60 years are affected by fungal nail infections.2
Nail fungus thrives in warm and humid environments. Places such as swimming pools, public showers and changing rooms, can involve a risk of infection. Warm and tight shoes also help the fungus to thrive.
The nail fungus grows slowly and often shows slight symptoms to begin with. Nail fungus is characterised by the nails’ layers becoming ridged and brittle. The nail gradually becomes discoloured, thickened and may crack or flake off. The infected nail can eventually fall off. If left untreated, this condition can become more severe, spread to other nails and results in pain and discomfort, which can affect quality of life.
Emtrix promotes healing of discoloured and deformed nails resulting from fungal infection or psoriasis.

How long does it take to see improvements?
Emtrix gives you healthier looking nails after 4 weeks, but the total treatment period is determined by the severity of the infection and the extent of the nail’s discolouration and damage. Normally 3-6 months of treatment are required to achieve a significant improvement. For best results, the treatment should be continued until a normal nail has grown out.
Do I need a prescription from a healthcare professional to use Emtrix?
Emtrix can be bought in pharmacy without prescription.
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 solution.

Can I use nail polish during the treatment?
