Fenticonazole has also been shown to exhibit antibacterial action, with a spectrum of activity that includes bacteria commonly associated with vaginal infections and antiparasitic action against the protozoan Trichomonas vaginalis.

- Candida albicans infections: One single 600 mg VT administration in the evening. Should the symptoms persist, a second administration may be repeated after three days.

Not investigated. Since systemic absorption of Fenticonazole after application is low, interactions with other drugs are unlikely.
Hypersensitivity to Fenticonazole or any component of the formulation.
After intravaginal administration slight transient burning (which usually disappears rapidly) may occasionally happen. Prolonged topical application may cause sensitisation reactions. Fenticonazole is generally well tolerated by the mucous membranes; only exceptionally mild and transient erythematous reactions have been reported. After topical application or intravaginal administration, a slight burning sensation may occur, usually subsiding soon. Should more persistent irritation occur or resistant micro-organism develop, suspend the treatment and seek the doctor's advice. Due to poor absorption of Fenticonazole, no systemic effects should occur, provided the above instructions are carefully observed.
