Loprox (Coclopirox) is used to treat minor fungal and yeast skin infections.


Drug Name

Loprox (Coclopirox)

Drug Uses

This medication is used to treat minor fungal and yeast skin infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm. This medication may not work well for infections on the nails, for areas of very thick skin (e.g., palms of hands or soles of feet), or for persistent or frequent infections. Oral drugs may be needed for these cases. Discuss with your doctor for more details. Loprox is an antifungal agent that works by stopping the growth of fungus.

How Taken

Clean and dry the affected area. Apply a small amount of the medication to the affected area and gently rub into the skin, usually twice daily or as directed by your doctor. Do not cover or bandage the area unless told to do so by your doctor. Wash your hands before and after applying the medication. Avoid getting the medicine in your eyes, nose or mouth. If you do so, rinse with plenty of water. Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. It may take one to two weeks of treatment to notice an improvement. Continue to use this medication for the full amount of time prescribed, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may not cure the infection, allowing the fungus to return. Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens after two to four weeks of treatment.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Loprox belongs to the class of medications known as antifungals. This medication is used topically (applied to the skin) to treat skin infections caused by certain types of fungus.
