duration of use
- The duration of treatment depends, among other things, on the extent and location of the disease.
- In order to achieve complete healing, the treatment should not be stopped after the symptoms have subsided, but should be continued consistently for a therapy period of at least 4 weeks. Pityriasis versicolor generally heals in 1-3 weeks and erythrasma in 2-4 weeks.
In the case of athlete's foot - to prevent recurrence -
treatment should be continued for about 2 weeks after all symptoms have disappeared, despite rapid subjective improvement.
If you use more than you should
- Consequences of using too large amounts are not known; there are no reports on this.
If you forgot the application
- Do not apply a larger amount next time, but continue treatment as recommended.
If you cancel the application
- In order to achieve complete healing of the fungal infection and to prevent a recurrence, you should not stop or interrupt the treatment prematurely without consulting your doctor. If you do this anyway, there is a risk that the symptoms will return, since your fungal disease has probably not yet fully healed. You should not stop the treatment after the symptoms have subsided, but continue it consistently.
What else can you do?
- Change towels, linen and stockings that come into contact with the affected area of skin every day. Even this simple measure supports healing and prevents transmission to other parts of the body and people.
- Before each application, you should wash the affected skin areas so that the loose skin flakes are removed. Then you should dry the skin thoroughly, especially between the toes in the case of athlete's foot, so that no moisture remains.
