Product introduction

Cipo-CF Cream is a combination medicine that is used to treat various types of bacterial infection of the skin. It minimizes symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling, and itching by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Cipo-CF Cream 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.

Uses of Cipo-CF Cream

Benefits of Cipo-CF Cream

In Bacterial skin infections

Cipo-CF Cream is a combination of medicines used to treat skin infections caused by microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi. It kills and stops the growth of infection causing microorganisms, thereby clearing the infection and relieving the symptoms. It also blocks the release of chemicals that cause symptoms such as itching, redness and swelling. Therefore this medicine relieves the inflammation due to these infections.

You should use Cipo-CF Cream for as long as it is prescribed, even if your symptoms disappear, otherwise they may come back. Depending on the type of infection you are treating, this may be several weeks. Even after your infection is completely cured, you may have to apply it occasionally to prevent the symptoms from returning.

Side effects of Cipo-CF Cream

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

How to use Cipo-CF 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 Cipo-CF Cream works

Cipo-CF Cream is a combination of three medicines: Fluocinolone acetonide, Ciprofloxacin and Clotrimazole. Fluocinolone acetonide is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the affected area red, swollen and itchy. Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic. It kills bacteria by preventing them from reproducing and repairing themselves. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
