United Home® Whitfield’s Ointment
(Antifungal/Keratolytic)

Format:

Topical Ointment

Price:

15g: ₱75.00, 30g: ₱115.00

Usage:

For the treatment of mild superficial fungal skin infections such as athlete?s foot (alipunga), ringworm (buni) and tinea versicolor (an-an).

Product Description:

The medicine is a combination of two topical agents, salicylic acid and benzoic acid, which together inhibit fungal growth. Both agents also possess mild antibacterial activity.

The combination of these two topical agents is more effective than when used individually. Salicylic acid, a keratolytic agent, softens and loosens crusts and scales on the skin and promotes shedding of the outermost skin layer which increases the penetration of benzoic acid in the skin to control infections. Together, these agents provide better protection against superficial fungal infections.

Direction for Use:

Clean the affected and surrounding areas of the skin with mild soap. Rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry. Apply a thin layer of the ointment and rub gently onto affected area of the skin twice a day for at least 4 weeks, or, as directed by a doctor.
