Precautions

Oxiconazole is not for ophthalmic or vaginal use. Contact with eyes or mucous membranes should be avoided.

Patients should be advised to discontinue use and notify their physician if increased signs of irritation (e.g., redness, itching, burning, blistering, swelling, oozing) develop.

Patients should be reevaluated and the diagnosis reconsidered if no improvement is noted after completion of the treatment period.

Tinea versicolor may cause transient hypopigmented or hyperpigmented patches originating on the trunk that may extend to the neck, arms, and upper thighs. The return of normal pigmentation may take months following successful treatment of the fungus, depending on individual skin color and sun exposure.

Tinea versicolor is a normal flora resident of the skin and, although not contagious, may recur.
