Antifungal agents for common outpatient paediatric infections

Abstract

The most common fungal infections in infants and children are mucocutaneous candidiasis, pityriasis versicolor, tinea corporis, tinea pedis and tinea capitis [1]. The objective of the present update is to inform clinicians on options for treatment of these symptomatic but non-life threatening fungal infections, given the wide variety of topical, usually over-the-counter (OTC) (Table 1) and oral prescription (Table 2) drugs available. It replaces the previous position statement published in 2007 [2].
