Customer Reviews
Miconazole is rated 3.8333333333333335 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay but can cause stinging, pain and discomfort I have a bichon who has ringworm on his side and one spot on the front of his right leg. The spot that's on his side has responded okay to the lotion but certainly nothing miraculous or remarkable. The spot that is on his leg has not improved at all for a couple of reasons. It's on a much bonier spot than the other so it tends to be MUCH more sensitive (just like getting a tattoo) than say a fleshy part near his side. When I put the medication on that spot it stings THE TAR out of him and leaves him whining and whimpering and me feeling horrible. I will be discontinuing the use of this and try something else. The benefit does not outweigh the horribleness of hearing and seeing him be in pain. There has to be a better alternative.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flaky Fungus Flees This product sprays on easily. The skin was flaky and the hair was falling out. The house was covered in a dandruff-like grit. It has rapidly disappeared and the hair is growing back in fast. Wendy has multiple allergies and this has been safe for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My cocker spaniel has had recurrent yeast infections in her ears. The vet prescribed this treatment and it completely cleared up her infection and seems to be soothing when applied.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from watch out! My kitten had very bad reaction after using this drug. It made him scratch to wonds. It didn't accure at the begining more in 3 weeks period. I was so furstrided that ringworm won't go away, instead it was spreding in more places. My vet said that it is very rare that kitten would have an allergic reaction, but it's possible. So be careful.

What might the vet mix with miconazole to treatan ear infection?

Asked by: Gonz
The vet may use a steroid sometimes to help with itching and inflammation. It completely depends on what the veterinarian is treating. Sometimes they use a mix of antifungal and antibiotic.

Is miconazole nitrate supposed to smeel so strong and horrible? Just the smell of it burns my nose,

I can't imagine what it must feel like to my Golden's skin when applied. Also, is it normal for the skin to turn bright red after applying to areas being treated? Or is that a sign of allergic reaction?
Asked by: shelldolfin
There is a solvent-like odor to the product that is normal. It sounds like your pet may be allergic to the medication if the skin is turning bright red after it has been applied. Please contact your veterinarian to report this reaction and for further instructions.

Are the miconazole products you can buy over the counter different from this one?

Asked by: missy
My vet told me to buy over the counter miconazole 1% or 2% at my local pharmacy in the athlete's foot/jock itch section. He said to use this on my dogs face but not near the mouth nor the eyes/nose. He also prescribed an oral medication. So far so good. Over night we saw a HUGE improvement in our chihuahua's face. It was so much better after the first application.
