How to choose a Russian analogue of "Lotserila"?
The antifungal agent "Loceril" is intended for the treatment of nail plates. Unfortunately, not all patients can afford this expensive medication. If necessary, you can pick up a Russian analogue of "Loceril", which will have the same powerful therapeutic effect. Let us consider in more detail the features of the original tool and the effectiveness of more accessible substitutes.
What is "Loceril"?
Fungus of the nail plates is an insidious disease that does not always respond well to antimycotic therapy. To cope with the disease, it is important not only to start treatment in time, but also to choose the right drug. Experts consider "Lotseril" to be one of the best antifungal medicines.
Analogues - cheap substitutes for the original - can be both imported and domestic. However, not everyone cope with fungal disease as effectively as "Loceril".The drug is produced by a French pharmaceutical company in the form of a varnish and a solution. They are applied directly to the nail plates affected by the fungus.
As an active component in the drug used amorolfin - a substance that has antimicrobial and fungicidal properties. The component is capable of destroying pathogenic microorganisms at the cellular level and preventing the destruction of the nail plate.
How to use?
Doctors warn that coping with onychomycosis is much easier when the disease is at an early stage. If therapy is not started in time, some drugs for topical application will not be enough. Lacer "Loceril" will help not only remove the fungus, but also hide the unaesthetic appearance of the nail. The active substance penetrates into the hearth and causes the death of the pathogen. The healing effect after application remains throughout the day.
The preparatory stage is the removal of the affected nail plate. This can be done using the nail file, which is attached to the drug. After that, the nail plate is degreased. After doing all the manipulations, it is necessary to apply the varnish "Loceril".
Analogues of the drug in the form of a varnish can have another active substance, but the therapeutic effect will be the most similar. Use these drugs is necessary until the complete regeneration of the nail plate. Do not use cosmetic nail polishes during the treatment. Substitutes can also be produced in the form of ointments and creams.
