Effective treatment of erythrasma-associated inflammation and pruritus with isoconazole nitrate and diflucortolone valerate combination therapy.Mycoses. 2013 May; 56 Suppl 1:38-40.M
A warm and moist environment is a common risk factor for erythrasma, a condition characterized by pruritic, scaly and erythematous tan patches on the skin. Here we report on a 13-year-old athletic student presenting with pruritus and mild burning on her left medial thigh, and subsequently diagnosed with erythrasma. The patient was successfully treated with a 5-day regimen of Travocort cream containing isoconazole nitrate 1% and diflucortolone valerate 0.1%.
