How to use and dosage: apply 1 centimeter of cream on the lesion (or more depending on the extent of the lesion) 2 times a day, then spread with your fingers until completely absorbed.
Store at a temperature not exceeding 25 °.
- If sensitization or irritation occurs, discontinue treatment and institute appropriate therapy.
- Avoid contact with eyes.
- Wash your hands carefully after each application, unless the treatment affects the hands themselves.
- It is advisable to apply the following hygienic measures to avoid the sources of infections or reinfections: keep towels and underwear for personal use in order to avoid the infection of other people; regularly change clothing that comes into contact with the infected area to avoid re-infection.

- Important information about some of the ingredients: the cream contains benzoic acid which may be mildly irritating to the skin, eyes and mucous membranes.
- Systemically administered miconazole is known to inhibit CYP3A4 / 2C9. Since, following local application, the presence of the drug in the blood is limited, interactions deemed clinically relevant are very rare. However, in patients treated with oral anticoagulants, such as warfarin, caution and anticoagulant action should be monitored.
- The efficacy and undesirable effects of other drugs (e.g. oral hypoglycemic agents and phenytoin), when administered concomitantly with miconazole, may be increased and special caution is therefore required.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding
The drug, applied topically, is minimally absorbed into the systemic circulation (bioavailability <1%). However, while there is no evidence of embryotoxicity or teratogenicity in animals, the potential risks of prescribing the drug during pregnancy must be weighed against the potential therapeutic benefits. Miconazole, applied topically, is minimally absorbed into the systemic circulation and it is not known whether miconazole is excreted in human milk. Caution is advised in the use of topical products containing miconazole during breastfeeding.
