Effect of fenticonazole spray in cutaneous mycosis: a double-blind clinical trial versus cyclopyroxolamine spray.


PMID 2185965

Abstract

A double-blind clinical trial was performed to evaluate efficacy and tolerance of once-daily 2% fenticonazole compared with 1% cyclopyroxolamine spray applied for 2-4 weeks in 100 patients with cutaneous mycotic lesions. After treatment lasting 21.9 +/- 6.7 or 22.5 +/- 6.2 days, respectively, patients receiving fenticonazole or cyclopyroxolamine had negative microscopic findings and cultures were sterile. Comparable clinical improvement was observed in both treatment groups, with 91.8% and 89.8% of patients, respectively, receiving fenticonazole or cyclopyroxolamine being evaluated as cured or greatly improved. Following a drug-free period, the clinical evaluation of nine (20.9%) patients treated with fenticonazole and 14 (30.4%) treated with cyclopyroxolamine worsened. The incidence of side-effects was low; only one patient withdrew from treatment because of a slight itch. It is suggested that fenticonazole and cyclopyroxolamine are equally effective in eradicating cutaneous mycoses and that their efficacy and tolerance are comparable.
