What is VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) ?

VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) is a prescription skin medicine used to treat diaper rash that also has a yeast infection in children who are at least 4 weeks old and who have a normal immune system. VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) contains medicines that will help treat the yeast infection and the diaper rash, but you must also change your child's diapers very often so that your child is not wearing a wet or soiled diaper. Even if you use VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) , diaper rash will not go away if you do not keep your child's diaper area clean and dry. You should use water or a very mild cleanser to clean your child's diaper area. VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) is not to be used to prevent diaper rash or to be used for more than 7 days.

Your health care provider will need to do a special test to tell if your child's diaper rash also has a yeast infection. Do not use VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) on your child's diaper rash unless your health care provider tells you that there is also a yeast infection.

Who should not use VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) ?

Most cases of diaper rash do not need the yeast medicine that is in VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) because most cases of diaper rash do not also have a yeast infection.

Do not use VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) on any other children or other family member.
