Fungal infections are a very common problem. Infections can occur at sites all over the body, including the feet, thighs, scalp, groin, skin, fingernails and toenails. All of these areas can be treated with Grifulvin.
Grifulvin V is the brand name for pharmaceutical drug Griseofulvin, which is used to combat a range of infections such as ringworm, jock itch, other skin infections and nail infections. Griseofulvin is administered orally in either tablet or liquid form. Its fungus-fighting properties are derived from culture obtained from certain strains of the mould Penicillium griseofulvum, discovered back in 1939.
- Banish jock itch
Jock itch (tinea cruris) also known as crotch itch, crotch rot, or eczema marginatum, is a dreaded, yet very common condition affecting men everywhere. Banish the horrible itching and raised rash caused by a form of ringworm with Grifulvin.
- Get Rid of Unsightly Nails
Grifulvin prevents the growth of fungi causing unsightly nail infections. It's safe to take Grifulvin for 6-8 months (fingernails) and for 12-18 months (toe nails) so you can be sure to clear these persistent, pesky infections permanently.
- No More Itchy Rash!
Tinea (ringworm) causes itchy inflamed skin. It also doesn't look too flash, with unsightly, scaly inflamed patches forming on the skin. Grifulvin is an effective treatment of ringworm and provides relief from its symptoms.
Griseofulvin is usually taken once or twice a day. Fungal infections are very persistent in their nature so it's is important to continue taking the medication for the recommended amount of time – usually 2 to 4 weeks for infections of the skin, 4 to 6 weeks for infections of the scalp, up to 8 weeks for foot infections, 3 to 4 months for fingernail infections and at least 6 months for toenail infections. You must follow the instructions on the label carefully – don't stop the medication just because your symptoms appear to clear up quickly, or you won't properly clear the infection. Wherever possible, Grifulvin should be taken with meals, ideally ones high in fat. Fatty food allows your body to absorb the medicine better and you are also less likely to suffer from a stomach upset.
