Tinea versicolor is one of the most common infectious skin diseases that is seen in abundance during summer. The present study compared Terbinafine and Eberconazole in the management of Tinea versicolor.
Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 235 cases (Group I) of Tinea versicolor of both genders. Patients were randomly divided into two study groups, i.e. Group I patients were given eberconazole 1% cream once daily for 2 weeks and Group II were given terbinafine 1% cream once daily for 2 weeks. Safety assessment was recorded.
Results: Out of 240 patients, males were 125 and females were 115. In group I, 96 patients had complete healing while 72 patients in group II had complete healing, 24 in group I and 43 in group II had mild residual disease, 5 in group II had considerable residual. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
