How Cosvate-Gm Cream works

Cosvate-Gm Cream is a combination of three medicines: Clobetasol, Gentamicin 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. It does cure the condition but provides temporary relief of symptoms. 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.

FAQs

Q. How to use Cosvate-Gm?

Cosvate-Gm should be used as advised by the doctor or as per the instructions on the label of the medicine. Apply a thin layer to cover the affected areas. The dose would depend on the condition for which it is prescribed. Wash your hands after using this medicine unless it is used for treating infection of the hands. Avoid any contact with the eyes.

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

No, do not stop using Cosvate-Gm and complete the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.

Q. What are the precautions that need to be taken while using Cosvate-Gm?

Cosvate-Gm should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided. Do not apply a bandage or dressing on the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the medicine and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should only be used for the condition it is prescribed for. Do not use it for any other condition without consulting your doctor.

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Cosvate-Gm for long periods?

The dosage and duration of using Cosvate-Gm should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. This medicine contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood circulation and cause adrenal suppression and Cushing's syndrome. It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application can cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible due to the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Cosvate-Gm?

Keep this medicine in the packet or the container it came in. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.

Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Cosvate-Gm?

Use of Cosvate-Gm is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine. Avoid its use in case of any fungal infections (ringworm or athlete's foot), viral infections (herpes or chickenpox). It should also be avoided in the treatment of acne or rosacea. Consult your doctor before using it for any condition.
