Overview

Introduction

Abzorb Soap is an antifungal medication. It is used in the treatment of fungal skin infections such as ringworm, athlete’s foot, nappy rash, sweat rash and vaginal thrush. It kills the fungi by destroying the fungal cell membrane.

Abzorb Soap is for external use only. You should use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need as instead of clearing the infection faster, it may cause increased side effects. If your condition goes on for longer than four weeks or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. The effects of medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry and by washing hands before and after treating the infection. If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.

Some of the common side effects include skin irritation, redness or itching at the site of application. If the side effects bother you or do not go away, let your doctor know. Some people have a severe allergic reaction which needs urgent medical attention. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing or breathing problems, dizziness and nausea. Get emergency help if this happens.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way it works but talk to your doctor before using it if you have used a similar medicine before and had an allergic reaction. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed during pregnancy.

FAQs

Q. What is Abzorb used for?

Abzorb is an antifungal skin cream. It is used to treat fungal skin infections such as ringworm (fungal skin infection that causes a red scaly rash on different parts of the body), athlete’s foot (fungal infection of the skin on the feet and between the toes), fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash. It is also used to relieve irritation of the vulva (external thrush) and irritation occurring at the end of the penis, which may be associated with thrush.

Q. Abzorb is effective against which fungi?

Abzorb is effective against Trichophyton species which cause ringworm infection, athlete’s foot and jock itch (fungal infection of the skin in the groin or buttocks). It is also effective against yeast known as Candida which commonly causes vaginal thrush (infection caused by overgrowth of yeast called Candida albicans).

Q. I have started using Abzorb. By when can I expect to start seeing the improvements?

The symptoms of skin infection, such as itching or soreness, should improve within a few days of treatment. However, the signs such as redness and scaling may take longer to disappear. Do not stop applying this medicine before the duration advised by your doctor, even if you feel better.

Q. What precautions are necessary while applying Abzorb?

Always wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying Abzorb. If you are using the cream for an infected foot, wash and dry your feet thoroughly before applying the cream, especially between the toes, before applying the cream. Abzorb should be applied thinly and evenly and rubbed in gently.to the affected areas two or three times daily.

Q. For how long should I apply Abzorb? Can I stop if the symptoms have completely disappeared?

The duration of treatment depends on the type of infection. In general, the treatment is continued for 1 month for tinea infection and for at least for 15 days for candida infection. Do not stop the treatment on your own even if you feel better because the infection may come back as it takes some time to kill the fungus.

Q. Is Abzorb safe to use in children?

Abzorb is safe for children only if taken as directed by the doctor. It should be given to children in the correct dose only for the prescribed length of time. Minor side effects may occur but usually, they are not bothersome. However, if you develop a burning sensation, redness and itching (which is severe in nature), stop the medicine and contact your doctor.

Q. Are there any measures that should be taken to help a faster recovery?

Keep the affected skin areas clean and dry but avoid excessive rubbing. You may have the urge to scratch because of itchiness but avoid scratching as it will damage the surface of skin and cause the infection to spread further. Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.

Q. Does Abzorb affect contraception?

Abzorb may reduce the effectiveness of rubber contraceptives, like diaphragms and condoms. If you are using the cream on vulva or penis, you should use alternative methods of contraception, for at least 5 days after using Abzorb.
