Haloprogin is an antifungal drug used to treat athlete's foot and other fungal infections. It is marketed in creams under the trade names Halotex, Mycanden, Mycilan, and Polik.

Action

Haloprogin was previously used in 1% topical creams as an antifungal agent. It was marketed over the counter primarily to treat tinea infcections of the skin. The mechanism of action is unknown.[1]

Haloprogin had a high incidence of side effects including: irritation, burning, vesiculation (blisters), scaling, and itching. It has since been discontinued due to the emergence of more modern antifungals with fewer side effects.[2]
