Agisten Aloevera is an imidazole antifungal preparation.
Agisten is intended for the treatment of fungus and abrasions of the skin. The preparation treats a range of fungal strains that may appear in various body areas: soles of the feet and toes, underarms, groin, skin folds and other skin areas.
Do not swallow! This preparation is intended for external use only.
Avoid contact with mucous membranes (such as the eyes, mouth and nose). In case of contact with the eyes, rinse well with water.
Do not cover the treated area with bandage or band-aid, unless explicitly instructed to do so by your doctor.
Recommended dosage and instructions for use unless otherwise prescribed by your doctor:
Twice daily treatment is recommended (morning and evening).
First, clean and dry the irritated area. Apply the cream to the irritated area and gently rub in.
Generally a strip of cream is sufficient to treat an area the size of the palm of your hand.
The average duration of treatment, for the different mycotic skin infections, is between 2-3 weeks. In order to prevent recurrence of the mycotic infections (especially of the feet), continue the treatment for about two weeks after the disappearance of all the infection's symptoms. If there is no improvement in your condition within 4 weeks, refer to your doctor.
Moisture enhances fungal growth. Therefore the affected area should be kept dry.
The affected area must be washed before each application of the preparation. Between each application of the cream, talc or an antifungal powder may be used in order to keep the area dry. If treatment is for the feet be sure to wash and dry them thoroughly, especially the area between the toes.
It is best to wear cotton socks; avoid wearing socks made of wool or synthetic materials. Change them several times a day (depending on the amount of sweat).
During the appropriate seasons, it is advisable to wear sandals without socks.
