Introduction to Nail Fungus Topical
Formula 3 Preferred by Physicians
For over 50 years, the FDA has approved the use of tolnaftate for the treatment of fungal infections. Formula 3 is effective as a result of Tetra’s invention of oil-soluble tolnaftate, and was the first product available to patients utilizing this formulation. Formula 3 contains natural jojoba oil which is quickly absorbed by the skin, and delivers tolnaftate directly to the infected area. For best results, apply fast-acting, quick absorbing Formula 3 after showering, when the skin has the greatest capacity for absorption. Use twice daily. Typically, your bottle of Formula 3 will last between three and six months. Consult your physician before using if you are pregnant. Formula 3 does not contain essential oils. If you have hyper-sensitive skin, you may experience redness and/or itching. If this occurs, stop treatment and contact your physician.
3 Easy Steps to Treatment
- Clean it up: Clean infected area and dry thoroughly. Pay special attention to spaces between the toes. Don’t be in a rush to put on your shoes. Let your feet air out.
- Apply it thin: Apply a thin layer of Formula 3 over the affected area twice daily or as directed by a doctor will allow the product to penetrate the tissue and reach the fungal growth area.
- Change it often: Change your shoes and socks when your feet get wet or damp. Keep extra socks with you and change them as needed. Wear well fitting, ventilated shoes. Buy absorbent or special synthetic socks that wick the perspiration from your feet.
