Micatin is anti-fungal medication that is used to treat skin infections including athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, tinea versicolor and yeast infections.
Micatin cream should be stored at room temperature in an area that is protected from heat and moisture.
If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or planning to breastfeed, tell you doctor before you begin treatment.
Use Micatin for the entire treatment period that is recommended, even if your symptoms recede, as symptoms of fungal infections generally improve before the infection has completely healed. Wear loose fitting and cotton clothing during treatment to ensure that your infection receives air circulation, which will speed healing process.
Micatin should be used in the manner that has been prescribed for you or according to the packaging directions. If you are unsure about the application of Micatin cream, contact your healthcare provider for further instruction. Micatin is generally applied topically to the affected area after it has been cleaned either once or twice per day. It is important to wash your hands before and after applying Micatin cream to the infected area. Allow air to circulate around affected area unless you have been directed otherwise by a doctor. Be careful if you are required to apply Micatin around the areas of the eyes, nose and mouth.
If you have had an allergic reaction to Micatin in the past, do not use Micatin.
