Vusion (miconazole nitrate, zinc oxide, and white petrolatum) Ointment is an antifungal used to treat diaper rash caused by a yeast infection. Common side effects of Vusion include burning, irritation, inflammation, pain, dry skin, itching, redness, and rash.
The recommended dosage of Vusion is a thin layer applied to the affected diaper area after being at each diaper change for 7 days. Certain drugs may interact with Vusion. Tell your doctor all medications your child takes. Gently cleanse affected area prior to applying Vusion. Do not use Vusion on infants less than 4 weeks of age. Do not use Vusion to prevent diaper rash. Doing this may cause resistance to the drug. Treatment should continue for 7 days even if there is improvement.

Vusion FDA Prescribing Information: Side Effects
Clinical Trials Experience
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rate observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.
A total of 835 infants and young children were evaluated in the clinical development program. Of 418 subjects in the VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) group, 58 (14%) reported one or more adverse events. Of 417 subjects in the zinc oxide/white petrolatum control group, 85 (20%) reported one or more adverse events. Adverse events that occurred at a rate of ≥ 1% for subjects who were treated with VUSION (miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) were approximately the same in type and frequency as for subjects who were treated with zinc oxide/white petrolatum ointment.
