Answer

Topical antifungal agents, including nystatin, miconazole nitrate (Micatin, Monistat-Derm), or clotrimazole (Lotrimin, Mycelex) creams, are generally curative. One-time oral therapy with fluconazole (150 mg) or itraconazole (600 mg) is effective and may be a more attractive alternative to some patients.
