Product description

Canespro Fungal Nail Treatment Set – shortest fungal nail treatment - treat for only 2-3 weeks. New & 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.

It works I read all the reviews and like most of the others had put up with unsightly toe nails for some time. I am happy to say that the yellow went within two weeks and I am now applying the recommended cream so time will tell. I found the product easy to apply but agree that the plasters are not great and at times were uncomfortable. 18 June 2014
Read This! I've had a nail infection for over 10 years and this is the first product where there are genuine signs of improvement. You will almost certainly know how Canespro works so I'm just going to list two important points from my experience. Firstly, if you have more than one nail infected there are nowhere near enough plasters. It would be good if you could buy more, but I just had to buy generic plasters and cut them to size. I also used surgical tape to hold all the plasters in place. Secondly, the scraping tool is useless. I purchased an electric nail file from an auction site for £9.00 (its a bit like a pen shaped drill with a sanding bit on the end). I used this instead of the scraper and it was far more effective at wearing down the softened nail and it also gave my much better control over how much nail I removed. In my opinion the product would not have worked as well without the electric file. I've almost removed all of the infected nail so will start applying the anit-fungal cream soon. I've been using Canespro for about 3 weeks and will have to use the anti-fungal cream for another 3 weeks. I've removed a fair bit of my nails and won't know for sometime if these products have worked. I'll come back in six months and update the review to five starts if the treatment has been a success, but I'm fairly optimistic...fingers crossed! 31 December 2014
It really works Bought this for my husband, the infection's gone in 3-4 days which will take other products 6 weeks or even longer to achieve. He is really pleased with it and going to recommend to friends. 19 June 2014
