Naftin Dosage

When treating athlete's foot, ringworm, or jock itch with Naftin, the dosage is based on whether you are using the cream or the gel, as well as the strength you are using. The 1% cream and gel are applied for four weeks, while the 2% cream is applied for two weeks. The skin cream is applied once daily, and the gel is applied twice daily.

An Introduction to Dosing With Naftin

The dose of Naftin® (naftifine) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on the strength and form of the particular product used. As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

What Is the Recommended Naftin Dosage?

The dosage of Naftin is the same for all of the approved uses -- athlete's foot, ringworm, or jock itch. The lower-strength products (1%) are applied for four weeks, and the higher-strength product (2%) is applied for two weeks. The cream forms in either strength are applied once a day, and the gel is applied twice a day. Therefore, the standard dosage is as follows:
 
  • Naftin 1% gel -- applied twice daily for four weeks
  • Naftin 1% cream -- applied once daily for four weeks
  • Naftin 2% cream -- applied once daily for two weeks.
 

General Information on Using Naftin

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Naftin include the following:
 
  • Only a thin layer of the medicine is needed. However, make sure to treat the entire affected area, including about a half an inch past the affected area to the healthy skin.
 
  • Wash your hands after applying Naftin.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or Naftin dosing in general, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
