1 doctor agrees
In brief: It depends
Ciclopirox cream is used to treat infections caused by fungus, and therefore may be used to treat ringworm, candida, tinea versicolor and possibly seborrheic dermatitis.
So, while it would likely be safe to use this cream if may not be helpful. See a dermatologist to determine the possibly cause of your condition. Once a diagnosis is made then a proper treatment can be prescribed.
