Comparative study of topical imidazoles in dermatophytosis
RP Sharma, NK Sharma, Sanjay Gupta, AK Agarwal
A total of 270 patients suffering from dermatophytosis, divided in 3 equal groups of 90 patients each, were treated with topical miconazole, econazole and clotrimazole for a period of 6 weeks. Moconozole was found slightly superior amongst the 3 with cure rate of 97.7%, while 93.3% cure rate was observed with econazole and 92.8% with clotrimazole. Trichophyton rubrum was the commonest fungal species isolated on culture.
