How Castor NF Cream works

Castor NF Cream is a combination of four medicines: Terbinafine, Clobetasol, Ofloxacin and Ornidazole, which treats skin infections. Terbinafine is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their protective covering. Clobetasol is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Ofloxacin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing them from reproducing and repairing themselves. Ornidazole is also an antibiotic which kills other infectious microorganisms in addition to bacteria by damaging the DNA.

FAQs

Q. Can I stop taking Castor NF when my symptoms are relieved?

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

Q. What precautions should be taken while using Castor NF?

Castor NF should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer periods of time than you have been advised. 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. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Castor NF for long periods?

The dosage and duration of using Castor NF should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. It contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can cause a change in the skin color, at the site of the application. Veins beneath the skin become visible because of thinning and weakening of the skin. There could be an increased hair growth. The medicine may get absorbed into the blood and can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the recommended instructions for the storage and disposal of Castor NF?

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.
