Miconazole Nitrate (Topical)
Skin and nail infections due to dermatophytes, yeasts and other fungi such as: Tinea capitis, corporis, manuum, pedis, barbae, cruris, unguium or onychomycosis. Pityriasis versicolor, candidiasis of skin and nails, stomatitis angularis, otitis externa. Since Miconazole Topical Cream has an antibacterial effect on Gram-positive bacteria, it may be used in mycoses secondarily infected with such bacteria.
Miconazole topical cream is a broad-spectrum antimycotic which offers a high antifungal activity against dermatophytes, yeasts and other phyco-Asco and Adelomycetes, with a potent antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacilli and cocci. Miconazole topical cream proved to be markedly effective in secondary infected mycoses, which under other treatments were resistant or reappeared. Miconazole topical cream does not stain skin or clothes.
Dosage & Administration
The dosage is same for all the ages.
For skin infections: Apply some cream to the lesions twice daily and rub it well with finger until it has fully penetrated the skin. All lesions usually disappear after 2 to 5 weeks. Prolong treatment for some 10 days to prevent relapse.
For nail infections: Clip infected nail as shortly as possible. Apply some cream once daily to the infected nail and rub with your finger, cover nail with a non-perforated occlusive plastic bandage.
Also after loosening of the infected nail (from 2-3 weeks onwards) uniterrupted treatment should be continued until the growth of a new nail has set in and definite cure can be observed (usually after seven months or more).
No contraindication is known.
Topical application of Miconazole Nitrate has almost no side effect.
