Naftin Side Effects

When Naftin was given to people during clinical trials, some of the most common reactions included redness, dryness, and burning. These studies also showed that most people who use this medicine will generally tolerate it well, with a majority not experiencing any problems. However, seek immediate medical treatment if you develop potentially serious Naftin side effects, such as hives, difficulty swallowing, or swelling.

An Introduction to Naftin Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Naftin® (naftifine) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the drug will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Naftin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
 

Common Side Effects of Naftin

Naftin has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In some of these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people using Naftin cream or gel were carefully documented and compared to those that were reported in another group using a similar product that did not contain any active ingredients (a placebo). Some studies did not use a placebo.
 
In these studies, the most common Naftin side effects included:
 
  • Burning or stinging -- in up to 6 percent of people
  • Dryness -- up to 3 percent
  • Redness -- up to 2 percent
  • Itching -- up to 2 percent
  • Skin irritation -- up to 2 percent.
 
In general, adverse reactions occurring in the groups treated with Naftin were similar to those that were seen with the placebo.
