Micetal (flutrimazole) cream is licensed for the topical treatment of the fungal skin infections Tinea pedis, T. corporis, T. cruris, cutaneous candidiasis and pityriasis versicolor. It is applied sparingly once or twice daily for up to 4 weeks.

Flutrimazole is active against Epidermophyton floccosum and Malassezia furfur, as well as various Candida, Microsporum, and Trichophyton species. Like other imidazole antifungals, flutrimazole alters the fungal cell membrane by inhibiting the enzyme lanosterol-14α-demethylase, interfering with ergosterol synthesis.
