Gris-PEG Description

Gris-PEG is an oral medication that is prescribed to treat fungal infections on your skin, hair, and nails when antifungal lotions or creams have failed to produce any positive outcomes. Ringworm infections can cause the red, peeling skin on your feet and in-between your toes, raised circular lesions on your skin, or thick, discolored nails, and the embarrassing itchy groin.

You can pass ringworm to others through direct contact or sharing the same wash cloth, towel, razor, brush, or comb. Children can pass a fungal infection to their playmates through direct contact as they play, share eating utensils, or by wearing each other’s head or hair accessories. Personal hygiene is important to stop the spread of ringworm.

Don’t Allow the Fungi to Multiply

Gris-PEG contains Griseofulvin Ultramicrosize which binds to a protein that fungal cells make called tubulin. This protein is essential for the fungi to begin the chemical procedures that result in the fungal cells being able to divide and reproduce. This action of binding to tubulin does not directly kill the fungus but renders the fungal cells unable to divide so they simply expire eventually. You may be expected to take Gris-PEG for up to six months depending on the type of fungal infection you have and where it is, so you will need to be patient.

Conditions Treated by Gris-PEG

Tinea pedis, also called athlete’s foot because it is a common fungal infection among sports-minded individuals, affects the skin on the feet and can spread to the toenails. Fungus thrives in warm, moist environments such as locker rooms or change rooms. The floors in and around these areas can be contaminated with fungus and enjoy hot, sweaty sneakers if you aren’t careful about cleaning and drying your feet well before dressing.

Jock itch affects the groin area where men perspire and may be careless about using or reusing their gym towel to dry off. This towel has been on the damp floor, in a humid locker, or balled up in a heap and the fungus is thriving as you unwittingly pat a few areas of your skin. Attention to hygiene is essential to avoid the spread of a fungal infection to your friends, family, or co-workers.

Before Gris-PEG is Prescribed

Women that are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding should ask their doctor about any health risks of taking Gris-PEG. To determine if Gris-PEG is safe for you to take, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Gris-PEG Precautions

Gris-PEG may cause your oral birth control to be less effective so you and your partner should use condoms as a back-up contraceptive during treatment. Until you know how Gris-PEG will affect you, avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing any task that requires you to be alert. Do not drink alcohol during treatment with Gris-PEG as it can increase your risk of added side effects.
