FAQs

Q. Can I use Cosvate even my treatment is completed?

No, do not overuse Cosvate for long periods than what is prescribed. Overusing Cosvate can result in too much medicine being absorbed into the body. This may lead to thinning or weakening of the skin and other serious side effects. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

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

No, do not stop taking Cosvate and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before your treatment is complete. Stopping Cosvate 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 Cosvate?

Cosvate 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.
