Introduction

Candid Gold Dusting Powder is a combination medicine used to treat various types of fungal skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of skin infection such as redness, swelling, itching, etc., by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Candid Gold Dusting Powder is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin with clean and dry hands. Wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. If it gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina rinse with water. It may take several days to weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. The course of the treatment should be completed to ensure better efficacy of the medicine. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

This is usually a safe medicine, however, it may cause burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Serious side effects are rare. You must consult the doctor if you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.).

Before taking this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine. You should consult the doctor about prescribing an alternative medicine for your condition. During the course of the treatment, do not touch or scratch the infected skin areas as this may worsen or spread the infection.

How Candid Gold Dusting Powder works

Candid Gold Dusting Powder is a combination of two medicines: Allantoin and Clotrimazole. Allantoin is a skin protectant that moisturizes the skin and relieves minor irritation. Clotrimazole is an antifungal. It works by stopping the growth of fungi on the skin by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. This treats your infection.
