Introduction

Theozole 1% Gel is an antifungal medicine that helps treat infections of the skin, fingernails, and toenails. It kills fungi by destroying the fungal cell membrane thereby stopping the growth of fungus.

Theozole 1% Gel is for external use only. You should use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. The affected area should be clean and dry before application of the medicine. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after the medicine application. Do not use the medicine for longer than your doctor has told you to and let him or her know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment.  If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.

Some of the common side effects of this medicine include skin irritation, redness, or itching at the site of application. Please consult your doctor if these side effects persist for a longer duration. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water and seek immediate medical attention. You should stop taking it straight away if you have any signs of an allergic reaction such as rash, swelling of the lips, throat, or face, swallowing or breathing problems, dizziness, and nausea.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ask your doctor if it is safe.

FAQs

Q. What is Theozole 1% Gel used for?

Theozole 1% Gel is used to treat fungal infections caused by Trichophyton spp., Microsporum spp., and Epidermophyton floccosum. The infections caused could be ringworm infection, infection of the feet, or infection in the groin and buttocks. This medicine also treats persistent infection of fingernails and toenails, persistent candida (yeast) infections of vagina or candida (yeast) infections of the mouth or throat in patients with lower disease resistance. It is also used in the treatment of cryptococcal infection and infections caused by Histoplasma, aspergillus, and Blastomyces.

Q. Theozole 1% Gel is effective against which fungi?

Theozole 1% Gel is effective against Trichophyton species which cause ringworm infection, athlete’s foot, and jock itch (fungal infection of the skin in the groin or buttocks). It is also effective against yeast known as Candida which commonly causes vaginal thrush (infection caused by an overgrowth of yeast called Candida albicans).

Q. How to use Theozole 1% Gel?

Before using Theozole 1% Gel, clean and dry the affected area. Gently and thoroughly massage it into the skin. Be careful not to get the medication in your eyes or mouth. If Theozole 1% Gel gets in your eyes accidentally, wash with plenty of water and call your doctor if your eyes are irritated.

Q. For how long do I need to take Theozole 1% Gel?

The dose and length of treatment will depend on the type and site of infection and your response to the treatment. For example, if you are taking Theozole 1% Gel for an athlete’s foot (fungal infection of the skin on the feet and between the toes), the dose may need to be taken for 30 days. While, on the other hand, if you are taking it for candidal infection of the vagina, the dose may take about 1 to 3 days depending on the dosage advised by the doctor.

Q. I am taking Theozole 1% Gel for nail infection but there does not seem to be any improvement. Can I stop taking it?

No, you should not stop taking Theozole 1% Gel without completing the entire course. This is because if you stop the medication then your fungal infection may not get completely cured. It usually takes about 6-9 months for the nail lesions to get cured and after that, the new nail also takes several months to grow. Therefore, do not worry if you do not see any improvement during the treatment.

Q. What precautions do I need to take while using Theozole 1% Gel?

Be careful not to get Theozole 1% Gel into your eyes or mouth. If you happen to get it in your eyes, rinse off with plenty of water immediately and contact your doctor. You must not use Theozole 1% Gel if you are allergic to it or any of its ingredients. Let your doctor know if you notice any allergic reaction while using it for the first time. Inform your doctor if you are taking any medicines regularly to prevent any allergic reaction with other medicines. Do not cover the area being treated with Theozole 1% Gel with a bandage, as this may increase absorption of this medicine and increase the side effects. Do not use more than what is recommended to relieve your symptoms faster. Using more than what is advised will only increase the side effects. Also, it is advised to inform your doctor if you are planning to conceive. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should use Theozole 1% Gel only if prescribed by the doctor.

Q. For how long should I apply Theozole 1% Gel? Can I stop if the symptoms have completely disappeared?

The duration of treatment with Theozole 1% Gel depends on the type of infection. In general, the treatment for tinea infection is advised for 1 month and candida infection for at least 15 days. Do not stop the treatment on your own even if you feel better because the infection may come back as it takes some time to kill the fungus.

Q. Is Theozole 1% Gel safe to use in children?

Theozole 1% Gel is safe for children only if taken as directed by the doctor. It should be given to children in the correct dose only for the prescribed length of time. Minor side effects may occur but usually, they are not bothersome. However, if you develop a burning sensation, redness, and itching (which is severe in nature), stop the medicine and contact your doctor.

Q. Are there any measures that should be taken to help a faster recovery?

Keep the affected skin areas clean and dry but avoid excessive rubbing. You may have the urge to scratch because of itchiness but avoid scratching as it will damage the surface of the skin and cause the infection to spread further. Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.

Q. Does Theozole 1% Gel affect contraception?

Theozole 1% Gel may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, like diaphragms and condoms. If you are using the cream on the vulva or penis, it is advised to use alternative methods of contraception for at least 5 days after using Theozole 1% Gel.

Q. By when can I expect to start seeing the improvements?

The symptoms of skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment. However, other signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. Do not stop applying this medicine before the duration advised by your doctor, even if you feel better.

Q. What should I do if I forget to use Theozole 1% Gel?

If you forget to use Theozole 1% Gel, do not worry and continue using Theozole 1% Gel as soon as you remember. However, if you are not sure and have any other doubts, please consult your doctor.
