Superficial Mycoses: Treatment With a New, Broad-Spectrum Antifungal Agent: 1% Clotrimazole Solution

Arch Dermatol. 1977;113(3):307-308. doi:10.1001/archderm.1977.01640030053007

• A 1% clotrimazole solution was used as an antifungal for Tinea versicolor, Cutaneous Candidiasis and Dermatophytosis. All studies were double-blind and controlled, active vs vehicle. The final evaluation was made at a two-week follow-up after the treatment was stopped, which for most of the clinical conditions studied, was 28 days. The 1% clotrimazole solution was found to be effective with no local irritation noted.
