Indications

Loprox Cream is a prescription medication used to treat fungal infections on the skin, such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and yeast infections. It contains the synthetic, broad-spectrum antifungal agent ciclopirox (as ciclopirox olamine). The cream is for topical use only and works by stopping the growth of fungus.

Uses and Dosage

Ciclopirox comes as a cream to apply to nails and the skin immediately surrounding and under the nails. It is usually applied once a day. To help you remember to use ciclopirox, apply it around the same time every day, usually at bedtime. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Use ciclopirox exactly as directed. Do not use more or less of it or use it more often than prescribed by your doctor.

To use Loprox Cream, follow these general guidelines:

  1. Clean and dry the affected area before applying the cream.
  2. Use enough cream to cover the affected area and a small amount of the surrounding skin.
  3. Rub the cream in gently and completely.
  4. Wash your hands after applying the cream unless you are treating your hands.
  5. Apply the cream twice daily or as directed by your healthcare provider.
  6. Continue using the cream for the full course of treatment, even if your symptoms improve before the end of treatment.

Follow your healthcare provider's specific instructions for using Loprox Cream and let them know if you experience any unusual or severe side effects.
