It is used in the treatment of various fungal infections such as tinea pedis (fungal infection between the toes), tinea cruris (red and itchy rash in the warm and moist areas of the body) and tinea corporis (ringworm fungal infection). Fungal infections can be contagious and spread from one person to another person.

LUCOZ CREAM is not recommended for use by pregnant and breastfeeding women unless considered clearly necessary. LUCOZ CREAM is not recommended for use in children 12 years of age and below unless clearly necessary. LUCOZ CREAM should be used with caution in elderly patients (aged 65 years or above).
