What Is Miconazole?
Miconazole is a topical medication used on the skin to treat various infections. It is an antifungal medication, meaning it primarily targets fungal or yeast infections on the skin.
You will find this topical drug under many different brand names in the US, such as Aloe Vesta, Baza, and Micaderm.
This medication is for external use only and will come in either a cream or spray form.
How Does Miconazole Work?
Miconazole works like other anti-fungal drugs (imidazoles) by directly targeting the growth of fungi causing your infection. It prevents further growth and helps to remove fungus from the affected area, clearing up the infection and reducing any side-effects – such as excessive itching.
What Is Miconazole Used For?
Miconazole is used to tackle a broad range of fungal and yeast skin infections. This can include any of the following:
- Athlete’s Foot
- Jock Itch
What Are the Side Effects of Miconazole?
You may experience a variety of common side effects when taking Miconazole:
- Mild skin irritation
- A slight burning sensation
- Mild swelling
It’s not uncommon to see these side effects as you apply the cream, particularly the first few times you use it. However, in most cases, you will notice the side effects decrease quickly or stop occurring. If you experience any of these minor side effects all the time or they keep getting worse, contact your doctor immediately.
Moreover, it’s important to identify some more severe side effects of Miconazole. While these are less common, they demand more serious attention:
- Allergic reactions
- Severe swelling
- Persistent inflammation
- Open sores
- Oozing pimples
- Severe pain
If any of these side effects are noted, you should stop using the medication and contact your doctor right away.
How Do You Take Miconazole?
As mentioned previously, Miconazole should be taken externally and is only available in a cream or spray form. You will receive detailed information on dosages and how to apply the cream/spray from your doctor when you get your online prescription. There will also be an information sheet that comes with your medication. We strongly suggest reading this through and following the steps thoroughly.
General guidelines for taking Miconazole are as follows:
- Wash your hands or use an antibacterial cleaning gel
- Ensure the affected area is clean and dry
- If using Miconazole cream, apply a thin layer over the area and rub in until it is absorbed
- If using Miconazole spray, shake the bottle and spray evenly over the infected area
- Wash your hands thoroughly after use
Unless your doctor tells you to do so, it’s not advised to cover the infected area in a bandage or gauze. You should also listen to your doctor with regard to frequency. Some patients will need to apply Miconazole twice a day while others may only need it once. The length of treatment also depends on the type of fungal/yeast infection being treated.
Pay attention to any reactions or effects as you use your prescription. If the symptoms don’t improve or the infection isn’t clearing up, consult with your doctor and they will either increase your dosage or find a different treatment.
Frequently asked questions
When Should You Not Use Miconazole?
It’s essential to tell your doctor about any allergies or issues you may have when they give you the prescription. Miconazole can also interfere with other drugs that are taken orally and lead to serious problems. To avoid this, let your doctor know if you take: Warfin, any statins, or oral hypoglycemics. In general, it’s better to provide your doctor with your full medical history and ask them directly if Miconazole is right for you.
What to Avoid While Using Miconazole?
Here are some things you should avoid when using Miconazole:
- Sexual activity – If you’re using miconazole for a vaginal yeast infection, it’s advisable to avoid sexual intercourse.
- Tampons – Again, if you’re using the medication for a vaginal yeast infection, avoid using tampons during treatment.
- Skin irritants – Avoid exposure to soaps, detergents and other skin irritants.
- Alcohol – Do not use any external products containing alcohol while using miconazole cream or spray.
The list above isn’t necessarily exhaustive – it’s always best to consult with your doctor before beginning any treatment to get a comprehensive list of what to avoid.
How Long Does It Take To Cure a Yeast Infection With Miconazole?
