Trosyl

Trosyl is a solution used against fungal infections, specifically those that can occur in fingernails. It contains an antifungal agent called tioconazole which stops fungi from spreading and kills it off.

Trosyl is applied in a very similar way to how one would use nail varnish. The nails receiving treatment are able to absorb the solution and this is how the antifungal agent is able to reach the source of the infection and attack it, reducing symptoms and eventually removing all fungi. This medication could be used as treatment for fungal nail infections for a long time. It’s common for treatment with Trosyl to last for up to six months, or in some cases it can even be used for as many as 12 months.

Prices start from £88.00

What is Trosyl?

Trosyl is a medication used to treat fungal nail infections. It comes as a bottled solution and the contents are applied directly to the affected nails. Marketed in the UK by Pfizer, Trosyl can be used by both adults and children for dealing with fungal nail infections. The treatment contains an antifungal agent called tioconazole. Ethyl acetate and undecylenic acid are other ingredients included.

How does Trosyl work?

Fungal infections on the nails can be tricky to deal with because the area they are under is hard and tricky to penetrate. Also, if nails are penetrated, it takes a long time for them to grow new healthy tissue. Trosyl is able to bypass this obstacle without physically altering the nails in any long-term or painful fashion.

When the solution is applied, it leaves a film on the affected nail which sinks its way through and reaches the source of the infection. The tioconazole in the solution then inhibits the fungi’s ability to produce ergosterol, which the fungi require to protect its cell structure. Without being able to protect itself, the fungi cells lose their integrity and disintegrate over time, killing the infection and relieving symptoms.

How is Trosyl used?

Trosyl is often used for up to six months, and in some cases it can be required for as long as 12 months. To use this medication most effectively, you should apply the solution thinly to cover the whole of the affected nail(s) and surrounding skin using the brush provided with this product. You should aim to apply this solution every 12 hours. A way of thinking about it is that you apply Trosyl in pretty much the same way someone would use nail varnish.

When the solution is used, it should be left to dry for 10-15 minutes. Rather than simply dry hard, the film the solution forms will gradually pass through the nail(s) and this film should be left intact for as long as possible for maximum effect. Just after the solution is applied to your fingernails, you should avoid putting your hands in soapy water. Water alone does not remove the film but soap or detergent is capable of this. If you need to wash something by hand, it’s best to wear rubber gloves.

What are the side effects of Trosyl?

There are potential side effects that can occur from taking Trosyl, although the vast majority are a rarity for patients. The most commonly reported side effects from users of this treatment are swelling of the hands and feet.

Rarer side effects include skin irritation around the nails and rashes which crop up during the first week of the treatment. This side effect tends to be short-lived and mild. Other rare side effects include discolouration, inflammation, pain or burning around the fingers. Another is an allergic reaction that includes dry, swollen or blistering skin around the face and eyes. It’s always advisable to contact your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if you do experience any side effects while taking this treatment.

Can I use Trosyl?

You should definitely avoid taking Trosyl if you have previously had an allergic reaction to tioconazole or any medicine designed to treat fungal infections. Pregnant women should also avoid taking this medication. If you are not pregnant but you are currently breast-feeding, then you may be advised to stop or avoid starting this treatment.

What if I swallow some Trosyl?

This is a problem and you’ll likely experience symptoms, although which ones you’ll get and how severe they’ll be can be difficult to determine. Trosyl is never meant to be ingested, so if you or someone you know ever does you should contact your doctor or accident and emergency department immediately.

How do I store Trosyl?

Trosyl is best kept somewhere secure that is at room temperature and out of the reach of children. It shouldn’t be stored somehow that’s above 25 degrees centigrade and the solution should be kept away from flames and heat. It should not be refrigerated either and when it is being stored after use, make sure the cap on the bottle is securely on top.
