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 take this medicine with proper consultation and caution.

How Canflo BN Cream works

Canflo BN Cream is a combination of three medicines: Betamethasone, Clotrimazole and Neomycin. Betamethasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi while Neomycin is an antibiotic which stops bacterial growth in the skin. Together, they treat your skin infection effectively.

FAQs

Q. What precautions should I take while using Canflo BN Cream?

Canflo BN Cream should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided. Do not apply a bandage or dressing on the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the medicine and increase the risk of side-effects.

Do not give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Canflo BN Cream?

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Canflo BN Cream and for long periods?

The dosage and duration of Canflo BN Cream should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice.

It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application can cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible because of the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could also be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Canflo BN Cream?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack 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.
