Drug Information for VUSIONTM (0.25% miconazole nitrate, 15% zinc oxide, and 81.35% white petrolatum) OintmentRx only. FOR TOPICAL USE ONLY. NOT FOR OPTHALMIC, ORAL, OR INTRAVAGINAL USE. (Barrier Therapeutics, Inc.): INDICATIONS AND USAGE

  • VUSION Ointment is indicated for the adjunctive treatment of diaper dermatitis only when complicated by documented candidiasis (microscopic evidence of pseudohyphae and/or budding yeast), in immunocompetent pediatric patients 4 weeks and older. A positive fungal culture for Candida albicans is not adequate evidence of candidal infection since colonization with C. albicans can result in a positive culture. The presence of candidal infection should be established by microscopic evaluation prior to initiating treatment.

    VUSION Ointment should be used as part of a treatment regimen that includes measures directed at the underlying diaper dermatitis, including gentle cleansing of the diaper area and frequent diaper changes.

    VUSION Ointment should not be used as a substitute for frequent diaper changes. VUSION Ointment should not be used to prevent the occurrence of diaper dermatitis, since preventative use may result in the development of drug resistance.
