Reviews

My grandmother had terrible toenails, brown, thick, brittle, she smeared them periodically with iodine, did not help. I barely convinced her to start treatment, she said that she would stop breeding the infection, I don’t want to get sick, and if she doesn’t start treatment, I will not visit her anymore. Only after that they went to the doctor, prescribed an ointment and pills, too, I see old age. I ran to the pharmacy, bought everything with my own money, helped her to process her nails for the first time, explained everything. Of course, I had to be treated for a long time, but now everything is fine. I wish everyone not to run my health. Marina, Gatchina, Leningrad Region
