Treatment for Cutaneous Candidiasis

Barrier Therapeutics Submission for Zimycan Deemed a Complete Response by FDA

Vusion for the treatment of diaper dermatitis complicated by candidiasis, contains miconazole nitrate, which directly treats the infection, while zinc oxide and white petrolatum provide a barrier to keep excessive moisture away from the skin. This moisture contributes to the cause of the Candida infection. Diaper dermatitis, commonly known as diaper rash, is one of the most common skin conditions in infants and is observed in approximately one million pediatric outpatient visits each year in the U.S. It is estimated that more than 40% of all diaper dermatitis treated by a physician involves Candida. In the U.S., there currently is no prescription drug approved to treat diaper dermatitis complicated by candidiasis.
