Uses of Dermi Cream

Dermi Cream side effects

  • Application site reactions (burning, irritation, itching and redness)

How to use Dermi Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Dermi Cream works

Dermi 5 Cream is a combination of five medicines: Clobetasol, Gentamicin, Clotrimazole, Clioquinol (Iodochlorhydroxyquin) and Tolnaftate. Clobetasol is a steroid. It blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Gentamicin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria that cause skin infections. Clotrimazole and Tolnaftate are antifungal medications which specifically stop the growth of fungi on skin. Clioquinol (Iodochlorhydroxyquin) is an antibiotic with additional antifungal action. It works by preventing the growth and multiplication of the both bacteria and fungi. This treats your skin infection effectively.

User Feedback


Q. How to use Dermi?

Follow the directions given by the doctor. Apply the medication thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas. Dermi is usually applied two or three times a day. Wash your hands after using Dermi, unless it is used for treating skin infection on the hands.

Q. Can I overuse Dermi?

No, do not overuse $ame for long periods or on large areas of skin. It can result in over-absorption of the medicine 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. What are the instructions for storage and disposal of Dermi?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. 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. Can I stop taking Dermi when my symptoms are relieved?

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

Q. What precautions need to be taken while using Dermi?

$ame should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised period of time. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated. This will increase the absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient and never be given it to other people, even if their condition appears to be the same.
