Miranel

For those of you who don't know much about Miranel, I have copied and pasted its ingredients. Many of you are using separately much of the ingredients already contained in the tube. Rather than buying all these ingredients individually it makes sense to me to get it altogether with one application. I will also add that after I began using it, my husband used it also. He had a white powdery layer on top of all his toenails (mine was more serious beneath the nail causing lifting, pain and gross discoloration). His condition was probably "superficial onychomycosis' from what I can gather off the internet.

Here are the ingredients:
Inactive ingredients Acetylcysteine, Allantoin, Camphor, EDTA, Eucalyptus Oil, HPMC, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Menthol, Oregano Oil, Propylene Carbonate, Propylene Glycol, Purified Water, SD Alcohol 40-B, Strontium Chloride, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Thioglycolate, Tea Tree Oil, Thymol, Urea

If anyone has questions I'd be happy to tell them how this product made such a difference for me.

Miranel unsuccessful for me

I would like to hear more about how Miranel worked for you. I would describe my problem the same as yours--under the nail, and yellowed toenail that is sometimes painful.

I was so hopeful Miranel would work for me. I have almost used the entire tube. At times it looked as though the fungus was clearing up but then reappeared again.

I have tried the Vicks and vinegar treatments. Nothing seems to work and I do not want to take pills because of the possible harm to your liver.

RE: Miranel unsuccessful for me

Lindastep,

I'm not sure your question made it to the message board originally; I just came across it today in googling "miranel and epinions." Are you still wanting information about my experience with Miranel? I'm sorry it has taken me this long to reply.

RE: Miranel unsuccessful for me

I would like to know how Miranel has worked for you. I ordered some and started to use it a 5 days ago. I'm not too sure how much I am supposed to put on, a thin film or a heavier coating. I have been treating all nails, even if they don't have any signs of fungus on some of them. I have been laying it on thick, particularly on the two pinky toes which have only a quarter of the nail left after trimming it back. I figured it would hold on better to the exposed nailbed. I have only been putting it on once a day at night. I have been using a combination of things during the day; which include michonazole 2%.

RE: Miranel unsuccessful for me

I began Miranel in October of 2008. I actually only applied to infected nails, but feel that it would cover your bases well if you applied to all your nails like you are doing. My infection was in fingernails. Seven of my ten fingernails were lifting from the nailbed nearly back to the cuticle. This was quite painful when I would hit something with a hard surface accidentally with my nails. I noticed within three weeks that the nails were responding. It was something that I could just "feel." By January of 2009 (3 months), my nails were grown out and reattached; well all but one of them that was very stubborn. I applied miranel both in morning and at night. I really feel this is important. I live at a lake in the summer, so didn't try to apply to the one stubborn nail until recently when I returned to my other home and don't have my hands in water so much (lake water). I have been using it religiously for about two weeks and feel this one nail is finally turning the corner too. I have no explanation why it didn't respond with the first set of applications in October. I did not use anything else on my nails. The reason being I wanted to know specifically if this product was "working" and that would be impossible to tell if I was using a variety of other topicals. My infection was about 10 years old and I had little hope of this working. Also, I applied this at night before going to bed and in the morning just before leaving for work. I tried to avoid getting my hands wet (washing hands) for at least one hour after application so it would get set in. I applied on top of nail, around sides and underneath the nail, pushing as far in as I could. I also did not wear any fingernail polish during this time as I felt it would inhibit penetration. I was very amazed at the results I had. I will tell you that I have this same infection on my left great toe. I have not used Miranel on it yet, but will as soon as weather gets cooler and I don't wear sandals anymore. I will remove my polish and spend the fall and winter months trying to get this one under control too; although it's not as bad on the toe as it was on my fingernails. If I haven't answered all your questions, please reply back. I was VERY diligent in applying twice every day. I would try very hard not to miss an application.

RE: Miranel

Thanks for your reply. I'm going to give it some time and see what happens. I like the fact that it dries hazy so that I can see where I put it, and it doesn't rub off in bed. I don't want to wear socks at night, as I want my toes to be as free as possible. I haven't been using it during the day because if I can get by the window at work, I try to take my shoes off now and then by the window for the light to come in on my feet. Also, I going home at lunch time and siting with my feet in the sun for 15 to 20 minutes. I'll post about my progress.

RE: Miranel

Good luck to you Twinkle Toes. I hope you have as much success and I've had. One of my problems on my stubborn fingernail is that because of the trauma to the nail it cracks vertically from the tip to the base, which makes growing my nail to any degree of length impossible. Perhaps when the infection is gone the split will improve too. In reading many of the posts on epinions I notice that a lot of people move on to a different remedy if they don't have pretty immediate results; or add to their regimen. I didn't give up on Miranel - although I am sure that it won't work on everyone. Please let me know how it works for you. Are your toenails thick from the fungus or thin? After reading a lot about it, that can differ a lot from person to person. My nails were very thin, but very brittle.

RE: Miranel

For the longest time (15 years aprox.) I had only the right big toe with a bit of detachment in one corner, which I attributed to an old toe injury, and it didn't occur to me that it could be fungus, as the small detached corner never changed shape and wasn't thickened, and this was the only nail that had anything different going on. I did notice an occasional white spot on the surface of my other nails intermitantly over the years, but thought it was a lack of calcium. Several months ago I started dancing and kept my dance shoes in a dark bag after taking them off, until the following week, never thinking anything of it. My feet sweat a lot, too. So, I think the combination of the dark and damp cozy place for this opportunistic fungus to pop up was set in motion. I got a blister between my big two and the second toe, but thought it was from friction. I now know that it was athlete's foot and once I realized that I treated it accordingly. What I didn't know is that it can transfer to the nails (hindsight)and I did occasionally scratch the bottom of one foot with the nails of the other. What was scary to me is that the pinky toe on my right foot went from healthy and normal looking to almost completely detached and grayish in a few weeks. What I have done is cut it almost to the cuticle (it was that detached) and filed it down so that the topical treatment penetrates. The pinky toe on the left foot became yellow and thick, so I have also filed it down to thin and it is now whitish, and it seems to absorb the topical treatments from what I can tell. I know that this is a long process. I equate it with growing out a bad hair dye job for shoulder length hair. I'm willing to invest the time and I have established a routine that I am willing to stick to. I am using the multi-treatment approach because I am trying to cover all my bases.

RE: Miranel

Sounds like your first signs of problem with your big toe (in 1st sentence) is just like mine. My detachment is slight right now, but I know how fast that can change, as it did with my fingernails. My problem began with artificial nails - something I will never do again. Anyway, nice to compare notes with you.
