How to use Bactirest M Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Bactirest M Cream works

Bactirest M Cream is a combination of two medicines: Mometasone and Fusidic Acid, which treats skin infections. Mometasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Fusidic Acid is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions.

Expert Advice

  • Bactirest M Cream helps treat inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis that are also infected by bacteria.
  • Do not use it more often or for longer than advised by your doctor.
  • It may cause minor burning, stinging, or irritation when applied. Inform your doctor if this does not go away.
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the cream in these areas.
  • Do not cover the area being treated with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor, as this may increase the risk of side effects.
  • Consult your doctor if your skin condition has not improved after two weeks of treatment.
  • Do not use it for longer than prescribed as prolonged or repeated use can cause the skin to become over-sensitive to the medicine and may also result in the bacteria becoming resistant to the antibiotic.

FAQs

Q. Can I stop taking Bactirest M when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop taking Bactirest M and complete the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.

Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Bactirest M?

Bactirest M should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised periods of time. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient and never be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Bactirest M?

Follow the directions given by the doctor. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas. Bactirest M is usually applied two or three times a day to the affected areas of skin. Wash your hands after using Bactirest M, unless it is used for treating skin infection on the hands.

Q. Can I overuse Bactirest M?

No, do not overuse Bactirest M for long periods or on large areas of skin. Use it as recommended by the doctor. Overusing the medicine can result in too much medicine being absorbed into the body. This may lead to thinning or weakening of the skin and other serious side effects. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Bactirest M?

Keep this medicine in the packet or the container it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
