Antifungal Agent In A Convenient Package

A tried and true podiatric moisturizer is now available in a more convenient form.

     Naftin® Cream utilizes naftifine HCl 1% to treat conditions such as tinea pedis, according to the manufacturer Merz Pharmaceuticals. The cream has fungicidal and fungistatic activity against various organisms, according to the company.

     Naftin is now available in a new 90-g size, which is reportedly in response to physicians’ requests for fewer refills for patients. The company says DPMs can use it for non-oozing lesions that are moderately scaling and for fissured or inflamed areas.
