Formula 3 is now offered by Dr. Bender at Advanced Physical Medicine
Last week’s blog focused on fungal toenails or onychomycosis.  This week, we will discuss a new topical treatment option that is only available from podiatrists, Formula 3.  This medication employs a very old drug, tolnaftate, but the company that created the product was able to make tolnaftate oil soluble, so that it penetrates the nail better.  The oil used to make this possible is jojoba oil.  Formula 3 is active against a variety of orgnaisms (including the most common fungi that infect toenails):  T. rubrum, T. mentagrophytes, Candida Albicans, and others.
This product is applied daily to the infected toenails.   There are NO side effects to the drug.  Fungal toenails require at least 9 months of application of the medication to clear out the fungus.  Topical solutions have been reported to be 50 percent effective for fungal nails.
Formula 3 is available from Dr. Bender at Advanced Physical Medicine for $30 (U30 USD). 

Additionally, the company that makes Formula 3 offers a no questions asked money back guaranttee if you are not satisfied with the product. 
If you are interested in this product, please make your appointment today!
