Griseofulvin (Fulvicin) Tablet

This medication is used to treat ringworm, a fungal infection of the skin involving fungi called dermatophytes. While it is possible for a ringworm lesion to be localized and require only topical therapy, this is not the usual situation; oral medication is generally necessary to control the skin disease.

This medication should be continued until the patient has been cultured negative. If it is discontinued prematurely (if the skin disease simply appears to have resolved but has not been re-cultured and confirmed resolved), the skin disease may recur.

Active Indredients

Griseofulvin tablets contain griseofulvin which is an antifungal antibiotic.

Griseofulvin kills the fungi that cause infections of:
ithe skin, scalp, hair or nails.

It works by helping the newly formed skin, hair and nails to resist attack by
fungi. As the new tissue grows, the old and infected is cast off. It is important
to continue treatment until all the old infected tissue is gone.

How this Medication Works
