Instructions for use
According to information from the instructions, Nitrofungin is included in the group of antifungal drugs for outdoor use. The form is a 1% solution having an ethanol odor and a yellow (yellow-green) color.
In 1 ml of the composition is the main active ingredient - 2-chloro-4-nitrophenol (10 mg). Capacity of one bottle of brown glass - 25 ml. The kit includes a dropper and a cap for with the control of the initial opening.
As auxiliary components are:
- 96% ethanol,
- triethylene glycol,
- purified water.
The place where the drug is stored must have a temperature in the range of 10-25 ° C. Also, it should not have access to the light and children. It has a five-year shelf life, after which it is prohibited to use it.
The nature of the effect of Nitrofungin is based on its ability to suppress the cell walls of the fungus and stop the synthesis of ergosterol (the main part of the cell membrane of fungi necessary for their growth).
An exceptional property of the drug is an antibacterial effect on microorganisms, which are often combined with fungal infection. This makes Nitrofungin highly effective in cases of combined fungal-bacterial infections. An additional advantage of the drug is the local anti-inflammatory effect and the rapid elimination of the symptoms of itching and inflammation.
The drug penetrates the horny part of the skin. It is derived slowly, concentrating on the surface of the skin. This reduces the need for frequent use.
Who is prescribed medication
The appointment of Nitrofungin should be carried out by the attending doctor in case of established disease of ringworm. This term refers to various skin diseases caused by fungal infections. The main treatment is concentrated in the upper layers of the epidermis of the tissues.
The instructions indicate the indications for use of the product:
- athlete's groin and feet,
- skin candidiasis
- mycoses of feet,
- mycotic and fungal eczema,
- ringworm and scaly,
- fungal lesions of the external auditory canal.
For the prevention of nitrofungin prescribed to prevent staphylococcal and streptococcal superinfection. It is effective in combating them if the infection has already happened.
This drug is not suitable for people with hypersensitivity, allergies or absolute intolerance to the body of its components.
Children under three years of age are also not prescribed.
Use during pregnancy can be resolved if the expected benefit of the drug for the mother exceeds the likely danger to the unborn baby. When lactation should clarify the issue of stopping feeding.
What side effects are possible
During the period of treatment with Nitrofungin may develop:
- local irritation on the skin (tightness, redness, itching),
- photodermatitis (increased sensitivity to light emission),
- manifestations of allergic reactions.
Nitrofungin solution is applied to the nail plate and other pathological areas of the skin with a cotton swab. This manipulation is done two or three times a day. Treatment lasts until the clinical manifestations of the disease disappear.
To prevent the re-development of the fungus, therapy continues from 4 to 6 weeks, 2-3 times per week.
For prophylactic purposes, the solution is used up to two times a week for a month.
As a rule, the solution is used for treatment in undiluted form. But in cases of inflammatory processes and hypersensitivity to the drug, the drug is half diluted with water.
Nitrofungin settled in my medicine cabinet a long time ago. Its cost is low, but it is effective when the skin is affected by a fungus. I tried to do everything according to the instructions. But she managed to lubricate her toenails only twice a day. The drug is a concentrated solution with the smell of alcohol, which destroys the fungus in 2-3 weeks. But so that he did not return, I was treated for five weeks. The disadvantage is that the skin is alcohol-like tanned. But this is not so important, since from the fourth day itch is gone, and the skin is gradually restored. I also like that the sore spot is simply wiped with a moistened cotton swab (more complicated with an ointment and cream). The instructions say that then you can not be in the sun. Perhaps it refers to the skin of the face and body. After all, toenails are open only on the beach.
I recommend as an effective and inexpensive remedy for fungal infections of the foot.
