Men Home > Naftin Gel

A healthcare provider may prescribe Naftin® (naftifine) gel or cream to treat certain fungal infections. This medicine is specifically designed to treat ringworm, jock itch, or athlete's foot.
The recommended dosing guidelines will depend on whether you are using Naftin gel or cream and the particular strength chosen (1% or 2%). However, the guidelines usually call for a thin layer of the medicine to be applied to the affected areas of the skin and about a half an inch past the affected area to healthy skin. Possible side effects may include skin irritation, such as burning, dryness, and redness.
