Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Clomax B?

Follow the directions given by the healthcare provider on the medication. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected area. Wash your hands after using Clomax B, unless it is used for treating skin infections on the hands.
