Miconazole is an antifungal agent that is used to treat topical fungal and yeast infections. The most common uses for this drug are athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, yeast infections, and tinea versicolor. One of the most common problems with this drug is that patients often cease using it before the infection is completely eradicated, leading to reinfection. Side effects include burning, itching, headaches, irritation, and rash.
