Oxistat cream is a medical substance consisting of an antifungal drug called oxiconazole. We carry the generic alternative to this mediation in 1%!
Oxistat cream is used to treat fungal infections. Fungal infections include athlete’s foot, jock itch, ringworm, and pityriasis (tinea versicolor). Fungal infections occur when an invading fungus takes control of an area of the body and is too powerful for the immune system to handle. Fungi (funguses) can live in the air, soil, water, and in plants.
Oxistat cream is effective in treating fungal infections because of its power to prevent the fungus from growing, to allow the immune system to fight it off more easily.
