Big Image
Generic Name: Naftifine Cream (NAFF-tih-feen)
Brand Name: Examples include Naftin and Naftin-MP

Naftin-MP Cream is used for:

Treating athlete's foot, jock itch, or ringworm. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Naftin-MP Cream is an antifungal cream. How it works is not totally understood. It is thought that it works by inhibiting production of a certain enzyme necessary for the life of the fungus.

Do NOT use Naftin-MP Cream if:

  • you are allergic to any ingredient in Naftin-MP Cream

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Before using Naftin-MP Cream:

Some medical conditions may interact with Naftin-MP Cream. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any medical conditions, especially if any of the following apply to you:

  • if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding
  • if you are taking any prescription or nonprescription medicine, herbal preparation, or dietary supplement
  • if you have allergies to medicines, foods, or other substances

Some MEDICINES MAY INTERACT with Naftin-MP Cream. Because little, if any, of Naftin-MP Cream is absorbed into the blood, the risk of it interacting with another medicine is low.

Ask your health care provider if Naftin-MP Cream may interact with other medicines that you take. Check with your health care provider before you start, stop, or change the dose of any medicine.

  • Wash your hands immediately after using Naftin-MP Cream.
  • Do not cover the area being treated with a bandage or dressing unless directed by your doctor.
  • Naftin-MP Cream is for external use only. Avoid getting in the eyes, nose, mouth, or other mucous tissues.
  • To clear up your infection completely, use Naftin-MP Cream for the full course of treatment. Keep using it even if you feel better in a few days.
