What is the dose of fluconazole for tinea? Is it is indicated for tinea infections?
Medically reviewed by Drugs.com. Last updated on April 5, 2021.
If non-prescription medicines are not successful for treating athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis), or if you have a severe infection, your doctor could prescribe an oral antifungal such as Fluconazole. The usual adult dose of fluconazole for chronic or extensive Tinea Pedis is 150 mg once weekly for two to six weeks.
Most cases of athlete's foot (Tinea Pedis) can be treated using a topical antifungal medicine to kill the fungus or slow its growth. Examples include terbinafine (Lamisil AT), miconazole (Micatin), clotrimazole (Lotrimin AF), and tolnaftate (Tinactin). These are available in creams, lotions and powders.
