Butesone M Cream is a combination of two medicines: Clobetasone Topical and Miconazole Topical which treat fungal skin infections. Clobetasone Topical is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Miconazole Topical is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
Butesone M Cream may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
Butesone M Cream is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby.
