Introduction

Cloby Ointment is a combination medicine used in the treatment of skin infections. It works by stopping the growth and killing microorganisms that cause the infection. It also blocks the production of certain chemical messengers that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.

Cloby Ointment is for external use only. It should be applied as per dose and duration suggested by the doctor. Applying it at the same time every day will help you remember to use it. The affected area should be clean and dry before application of the medicine. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. Do not stop using it until you have finished the complete course, even when you feel better. If you stop using this medicine too early, the fungus may continue to grow and the infection may return or worsen.

Some common side effects of this medicine include application site reactions burning, irritation, itching and redness. These are usually mild but let your doctor know if they bother you or last more than a few days. Avoid direct contact with eyes, nose, or mouth. If accidental exposure occurs, rinse immediately with plenty of water.

How Cloby Ointment works

Cloby Ointment is a combination of three medicines: Clobetasone, Gentamicin and Miconazole which treat skin infections. Clobetasone is a steroid medicine. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Gentamicin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
