Clinically we do not see cure rates anywhere near the claims that the manafacturers of Loceryl  make although it must work for some.

At best the result may be 2 to 3 % on nails with serious fungal infections, it might be more successful on nails with superficial white Onychomycosis but then would you bother paying for Loceryl when you can use some emery paper and simply sand the fungus off the nail.

Loceryl has an active ingredient called Amorolfine

It does not seem as effective on nails with deep nail fungal infections or nails where the nail matrix is involved.

We have seen several patients that have used Loceryl for a few years with no result. I guess there must be some patients that have varying forms of success. Some patients have purchased several boxes at a cost of between $ 75 to $80, resulting in them spending several hundred dollars with little  or no results.

On the upside there are no major issues with loceryl as far as side effects, so what is onychomycosis ?

It is a fungal infection of the nail plate brought about by one or more of the following organisms:

Trichophyton rubrum is the most common dermatophyte involved in onychomycosis. Other dermatophytes that may be involved are Trichophyton mentagrophytes Trichophyton interdigitale, Epidermophyton floccosum, Trichophyton violaceum, Microsporum gypseum, Trichophyton tonsurans, Trichophyton soudanense various yeasts and moulds.

So should you try Loceryl well we will leave that descision up to you.

    My wife has used Loceryl for 3 years now with little if any change we have spent hundreds on it. Every time I walk past a chemist and see those posters about “Scarey nails” I have a laugh how could they show those before and after shots they must have modified them in photoshop !!!
