Information About Loprox and/or Equivalents
Loprox Cream and Loprox Lotion are a topical antifungal treatment that contains ciclopirox and treats skin infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, and yeast infections. This cream should be applied twice daily. It is manufactured by Medimetriks Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and was approved for marketing by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2003.
Ciclopirox is a synthetic, broad-spectrum, antifungal agent. Its main action is to suppress the growth of fungus. The agent inhibits metal-dependent enzymes. This leads to the disruption of peroxides and plasma membrane of the fungal cell. In vitro, it has proven to work against isolates of trichophyton rubrum, trichophyton mentagrophytes, epidermophyton floccosum, microsporum canis, and candida albicans.
The drug has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of dermal infections including:
- Tinea pedis, tinea cruris and tinea corporis (trichophyton rubrum, trichophyton mentagrophytes, epidermophyton floccosum, and microsporum canis);
- Candidiasis (moniliasis) due to candida albicans.
Gently massage Loprox into the affected area twice daily, in the morning and evening. Within the first week of treatment, clinical improvement such as relief of itching/pruritus and relief of other symptoms will occur. If there are no clinical improvement after 4 weeks of treatment with Loprox, consult your doctor. Patients with tinea versicolor will exhibit mycological clearing after 2 weeks of treatment.
- Redness at the site of application;
