Answer

There may be some advantage to giving itraconazole with whole milk to increase absorption.14 However, because of its metabolism, drug interactions with inhibitors of cytochrome P450 are possible. [15]

Haloprogin is an agent for use in the treatment of tinea cruris. It is prescription only and is available in 1% cream and solution/spray. It is not available in the United States.
