PrecautionsIn the event of sensitization or irritation due to Micazole Spray, treatment should be discontinued. Avoid contact with eyes, since irritation may result. Wash hands thoroughly after administration to avoid spread of fungal infection.
Dosage and AdministrationAccurate diagnosis of the infecting organism is essential. Identification should be made by either direct microscopic examination of a mounting of infected tissue in a solution of potassium hydroxide, or by culture on an appropriate medium.
Spray affected areas from a distance of 2 to 4 inches to apply a light covering, once daily, for 2 to 4 weeks. Medication must be continued until the infecting organism is completely eradicated as indicated by appropriate clinical or laboratory examination. If no improvement is noticed within 2 weeks, diagnosis should be re-evaluated. Difficult cases may require treatment for 6 weeks.
General measures in regard to hygiene should be observed to control sources of infection or reinfection. Clipping of hair around and over the sites of infection should be done at the start of treatment and again as necessary.
