Mycelex Description

Mycelex is a topical antifungal agent that is prescribed to treat various yeast infections, including athlete’s foot, ringworm, jock itch, diaper rash, vaginal thrush (internal and external), and thrush of the foreskin or penis. Depending on where your fungal infection is, your doctor can recommend Mycelex or generic Clotrimazole cream (with or without applicators), lotion, gel, or powder. Directions for each of these fungal infections may vary as to the amount to be applied or inserted, and how long the treatment should last. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Mycelex Prevents Fungi from Growing and Multiplying

Once Mycelex has been applied or inserted vaginally as directed, the active ingredient Clotrimazole works by interfering with the fungi or yeast cell membranes in order to prevent the fungi from producing a substance called ergosterol. This is an essential component of the cell membranes and a disruption in the functioning of its construction causes holes in the membranes that allow the contents to leak out and other substances to seep in. This prevents the fungi from being able to grow and multiply so they die. If you stop treatment with Mycelex before you are instructed to, any remaining fungi could recover enough to start the process again and succeed.

Conditions Treated by Mycelex

Athlete’s foot is so named for the fact that many athletes have dealt with sweaty feet, clammy footwear, and warm, damp shower areas, which is a perfect setting for a fungal infection.

Ringworm is a fungal infection of the skin that appears as a red circular patch and scaly border; it has nothing to do with a worm at all. Fungal infections are contagious and can be passed on through direct contact or by the use of infected persons’ belongings (comb, towel, toys, etc) and from your pet.

If you are treating a vaginal infection and have been prescribed the Mycelex Cream with applicators for insertion, you should refrain from sexual intercourse as the ingredients in Mycelex can break down or weaken certain latex products such as condoms and diaphragms. Wearing cotton underpants can help reduce vaginal itching and possible infection because this material is breathable and stops the moisture buildup that is always so inviting to fungi.

Before Using Mycelex

Ask your doctor about the safety of using Mycelex if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. Tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and any OTC or Rx medication you are on, including herbal preparations or dietary supplements so it can be determined if Mycelex is the right Rx for your situation.

Proper Use of Mycelex

In order to gain the full benefits of Mycelex, you must use it for the treatment period indicated by your doctor or the infection may start up again. This is how drug resistance can occur when treatment is ended too early and the fungi or bacteria become less sensitive to the active ingredients of the drug you were using.

You should not wrap, bandage, or cover the treated area unless told otherwise by your doctor. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying or inserting Mycelex before touching other people or handling objects.
