To the Editor.—
Drs Leyden and Kligman did not mention in their outstanding article in the October Archives (114:1466-1472, 1978) the time-honored use of Castellani's paint for interdigital athlete's foot. It is antimacerative, antibacterial, and perhaps, to a lesser degree, antimycotic. Often a week's treatment with Castellani's paint is all that is necessary.
