Side Effects:

MYCONAZOL PLUS cream is well tolerated. MYCONAZOL PLUS cream does not stain the skin. Occasional burning and itching due to miconazole has been reported. Long-term continuous treatment with topical corticosteroid should be avoided as far as possible as this may cause atrophic changes in the skin These changes are particularly likely to occur on the face and when occlusive dressings are used.

Systemic absorption of topically applied corticosteroids may occur, particularly under the following conditions: when large quantities are used, or when application is made to wide areas of the body, or to damaged skin; when potent topical corticosteroids are used; and when the occlusive dressing technique is applied. Therefore caution is recommended during the lactation period.

If a secondary microbial skin infection is present suitable concomitant anti-microbial therapy should be instituted.
As with any topical corticosteroid, care is advised with infants and children when

MYCONAZOL PLUS is to be applied to extensive surface areas or under occlusive dressings including baby napkins.
Prolonged and excessive use can result in skin irritation, which usually disappears after discontinuation of therapy.

Drug Interactions:

Systemic absorption of miconazole, although low after topical administration, may potentiate the activity of warfarin.

Dosage:

For external use only. Avoid Contact with eyes.
Apply once or twice daily by rubbing the cream gently into the affected area so that it is completely absorbed by the skin.
Treatment should continue until all signs of the lesion have disappeared – usually after 2 to 5 weeks. (As a precautionary measure application should continue depending on severity of infection for 14 days after the lesion has disappeared to avoid relapse).
