Strut Nail Formula is a physician and pharmacist formulated blend of antifungal ingredients with a powerful driving agent to get the medication through tough nails. This medication may help treat nail fungus in less time by using high-quality antifungal ingredients in a deep penetrating base cream.
A compounded medication is a prescription that is mixed up specifically for you based on your doctor’s request for a specific strength and dosage form. Compounded medications are not manufactured, but made in compounding pharmacies that follow a formula ‘recipe’ customized to your condition to create an individualized medication for you.
Strut Nail Formula combines antifungal medications with a driving agent in a deep penetrating cream. Terbinafine has antifungal and antibiotic properties and is commonly used on fingernails and toenails. Ketoconazole is a topical antifungal agent. DMSO is a driving agent that helps medications permeate through the nails into the infection site. Hydrocortisone is a mild topical steroid that helps locally with inflammation, redness, itching, and swelling. Biotin is a B vitamin used to strengthen and support the healthy growth of your nails.
Topical nail formula is for use only on the nails and skin directly surrounding nails. Avoid getting this medication in your eyes, lips, or mouth. Wash your hands before and after applying the formula. Before applying, clean and dry the skin and nail area to be treated. Apply to the affected area and allow to dry thoroughly before covering the area. If you are treating your feet, wear clean cotton socks and sandals or shoes that allow for air circulation. Keep your feet as dry as possible. Follow your doctor's specific orders if you are unsure how to use the medication.
The most common side effects of Strut Nail Formula are itching, redness, scaling, and dryness on the application site. In rare instances, severe irritation, blistering, or oozing may occur. If side effects are severe contact us and your doctor.
You should use the nail formula as directed by your doctor for at least 6-8 months to get the full effects of the medication and fully clear the nail fungus. For some people, it can take a year or more for the fungus to clear. Even after it looks like the fungus has cleared, continue applying the medication for at least 2-3 months to prevent the fungus from coming back.
If you are a few months into treatment and your nail fungus does not seem to be clearing at all, please speak to your physician about prescribing a stronger option that may require the use of additional ingredients.
