SINGLE-APPLICATION TERBINAFINE HYDROCHLORIDE (1%) TOPICAL LIQUID SOLUTION VERSUS A SINGLE-APPLICATION BUTENAFINE HYDROCHLORIDE (1%) TOPICAL LIQUID SOLUTION FOR THE TREATMENT OF TINEA PEDIS


Brief description of study

Tinea pedis or athlete's foot is the most common fungal infection worldwide, caused by infection of the feet with dermatophytes such as Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton interdigitale (formerly Trichophyton mentagrophytes), and Epidermophyton floccosum. Diagnosis of tinea pedia involves clinical symptoms as well as microscopic examination. Topical therapies are usually applied once or twice daily for as long as 4 weeks, posing a challenge to compliance. The current study aims to test a formulation of the single-dose 1% terbinafine hydrochloride, as well as a single-dose 1% butenafine hydrochloride, versus a vehicle control in adult Filipino patients with athlete's foot. This study will benefit the Filipino community by helping us determine which anti-fungal cream is most effective for athlete's foot.
