Mentax Cream, also known as butenafine hydrochloride cream, is indicated for the topical treatment of certain dermatologic infections. Specifically, it is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Tinea (pityriasis) versicolor due to Malassezia furfur (formerly Pityrosporum orbiculare) 
  • Athlete's foot (tinea pedis)
  • Jock itch (tinea cruris)
  • Ringworm (tinea corporis)


  • Mentax Cream is for external use only. It should be applied to the skin.
  • Clean and thoroughly dry the area to be treated before applying Mentax Cream.
  • Apply a thin layer of the cream to and around the affected area. Gently rub it in.
  • Typically, Mentax Cream is applied 1 to 2 times daily, as directed on the product package. However, follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
  • Wash your hands after using the cream, unless the area being treated includes the hands.
  • The dosage and length of treatment depend on the type of infection being treated. Follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider.
  • Use Mentax Cream regularly at the same time(s) each day to maximize its benefits.
  • Continue using the cream until the full treatment period is finished, even if symptoms improve or disappear before that. Stopping the treatment too early may result in a return of the infection.
