Benefits of Amrolwin Cream

In Treatment of Fungal infections

Amrolwin Cream is used to treat certain fungal skin infections like athlete's foot (infection between toes). It is also used to treat fungal infections of fingernails and toenails (an infection that may cause nail discoloration, splitting, and pain). It slowly kills the fungi causing infection, and over time, the infected nail is replaced by new, healthy nail growth. Amrolwin Cream might take on average up to six months if you are using it for fingernail infection and if you are suffering from toe fungus, treatment can take between 9 and 12 months to be successful.

Q. How long does it take to clear the nail infection?

Amrolwin Cream takes a few days or weeks to clear up the infection. Clearing up an infection refers to the improvement of the symptoms of the infection. On the other hand, it may take at least 6 months to cure the fingernail infection and 9-12 months to cure toenails. Curing of the infection takes longer because a nail infection gets cured only after the infected nail is naturally replaced by a new nail.

Q. Can I stop taking Amrolwin Cream when my symptoms are relieved?

You may notice some improvement in your symptoms, but do not stop taking Amrolwin Cream before completing the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. However, you must inform your doctor if the infection does not clear up even after 5 days of treatment.

Q. What are the instructions for storage and disposal of Amrolwin Cream?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of unused medicine and make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
