Prescription Required

Introduction

Clobnix DS Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of various types of skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling, and itching by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Clobnix DS 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. 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.

The most common side effect of this medicine includes itching, dryness, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. These are usually 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 take 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.

How Clobnix Cream works

Clobnix DS Cream is a combination of two medicines: Clobetasol and Miconazole, which treats skin infections. Clobetasol is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.

FAQs

Q. What precautions should be taken while using Clobnix DS Cream?

Clobnix DS Cream should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided.

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

Q. Can I stop taking Clobnix DS Cream when my symptoms are relieved?
