How do I take/use this medicine?
Apply Tioconazole exactly as directed by your doctor.
Do not apply more or less frequently than instructed by your doctor. Follow your doctor's instructions carefully. Do not skip any doses. You should complete the treatment as directed by your doctor. If you don't, the infection will not clear completely.
You will need to use Tioconazole for some time before any improvement can be seen. Your doctor will advise you about how long you need to be treated. It is quite common for treatment to last for 6-12 months.
Wash and dry the affected area thoroughly.
Apply a thin layer of the solution over the affected nail(s) and surrounding skin using the brush provided. Leave the nail to dry for 10-15 minutes after application. A transparent and slightly greasy film will form over your nails. This film will slowly release Tioconazole on the affected nail. Avoid contact with soapy water or detergent immediately after applying the solution. Use waterproof gloves if necessary.
Re-apply the solution every 12 hours.
