Clopan Cream


Overview

Introduction

Clopan Cream belongs to a group of medicines called steroids. It is used to treat various skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, and allergies. It works by reducing swelling, redness, and itchiness of the skin and prevents further irritation.

Clopan Cream is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. You should normally wash and dry the affected area before applying a thin layer of the medicine. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with plenty of water if you accidentally get it in these areas. Avoid covering the treated area with airtight dressings such as bandages unless directed by a doctor.

Using of the medicine may cause skin thinning or burning sensation, irritation, redness and swelling at the site of application. These are temporary and usually resolve with time. However, if they persist or worsen, let your doctor know. The medicine is not recommended to be used in children. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctors before using this medicine.

FAQs

Q. Can Clopan be used for a long time?

No, Clopan should not be used for a long time. The doctor generally prescribes it for 2 consecutive weeks only. However, the treatment can be longer for chronic (long-term) inflammatory conditions. Consult your physician before using this medication.

Q. Does Clopan cause dangerous skin reactions?

Local skin reactions are quite rare with Clopan. Being an anti-inflammatory drug, it is used to treat skin diseases, skin reactions and eczemas. Still, skin reactions can occur in a person who is hypersensitive to Clopan. It is important to leave the affected area open after applying Clopan as using occlusive dressings (air- and water-tight dressing) can lead to skin reactions. If not by the medicine itself, sometimes the reactions are also caused by the added excipients with the medications. Inform your doctor immediately in case you encounter any skin reactions.

Q. Can Clopan be used on the face?

No, Clopan should not be used on face. In addition to this, Clopan should also not be used on the axillae (armpits), groin and if there is atrophy (wasting away of tissues) at the treatment site. In certain circumstances, it can be exceptionally considered to be used by the doctors. It should be used only after consultation with your physician and if possible, the application on face should be limited to a maximum of 5 days.

Q. Can Clopan be applied in children?

Clopan is not recommended for use in children less than 1 year of age. It is also not recommended for use in older children and adolescents as the side effects are more common in them. In the pediatric population, there is an increased risk of suppression of the immune system which may make the child prone to other diseases and atrophic changes, hence it is not recommended. Still, in some rare cases, the doctor may recommend this medicine, but the treatment is usually limited to 5 days and the therapy is reviewed weekly.

Q. Can we use Clopan in infections?

Clopan is not an antimicrobial or antifungal agent. It is a steroid medication. It should not be used in infections as being a corticosteroid it suppresses the immune system and increases the risk of infections. Bacterial infections are prone to worsen if the infection is covered with a dressing after using Clopan. In case the inflammatory lesions get infected or there is any spread of infection, consult your doctor immediately. The doctor will withdraw the use of Clopan and provide appropriate antimicrobial therapy.

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

No, do not stop taking Clopan and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before your treatment is complete. Stopping Clopan before your treatment is completed can bring back your symptoms of skin.

Q. What are the precautions that are needed to be taken while using Clopan?

Clopan 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 give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.
