Atonide Gel

Prescription Required

Introduction

Atonide Gel is a topical steroid use for the treatment of skin conditions with inflammation and itching. It provides relief from swelling, redness, and itching in the affected area by inhibiting the release of substances that cause inflammation.

Atonide Gel is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. You should normally wash and dry the affected area before applying a thin layer of the medicine. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. Rinse it off with plenty of water in case of accidental contact. Avoid covering the treated area with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor.

Using the medicine may cause burning sensation, irritation, redness, and swelling at the site of application, and rash. These are temporary and usually resolve with time. However, if they persist or worsen, let your doctor know. The medicine is not recommended for pregnant women. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctors before using this medicine.

In Skin conditions with inflammation & itching

Q. Does Atonide Gel cause skin irritation?

Yes, Atonide Gel can cause skin irritation. Though the chances are rare, the irritation can be due to the hypersensitivity of the person towards the medication or any added excipient of the drug.

The doctor will start appropriate therapy accordingly.
