About Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml

Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml belongs to a class of drugs called antifungals primarily used to treat fungal infections of the skin like ringworm, jock itch, and athlete’s foot. Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the tissue and causes infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another). Ringworm is a common fungal infection of the skin that is contagious and causes a rash resembling worm in a ring shape. Jock itch causes an itchy, red rash in the groin, buttocks, and inner thighs. Athlete’s foot usually starts between the toes and causes itching, burning, or stinging sensation due to a scaly rash.

Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml contains Luliconazole, an antifungal that works by causing holes in the fungal cell membranes that are essential for their survival as they prevent the entry of unwanted substances into the cells and stop the leakage of cell contents. Thus, it kills fungi and clears the infection.

Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml is only for external use. Take a small amount of Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml on the finger and apply it as a thin layer on the clean and dry affected area. Avoid contact of Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml with nose, mouth, eyes, or vagina. In case Lofatin 1%W/V Lotion 50Ml comes in contact with these areas accidentally, rinse with water thoroughly.
