Product introduction

Dermi 5 Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of various types of skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling, and itching by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Dermi 5 Cream is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin with clean and dry hands. Wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. If it gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina rinse with water. It may take several days to weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. The course of the treatment should be completed to ensure better efficacy of the medicine. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

This is usually a safe medicine, however, it may cause burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Serious side effects are rare. You must consult the doctor if you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.).

Before using this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine and consult the doctor about this condition. During the course of the treatment, do not touch or scratch the infected skin areas as this may worsen or spread the infection.

Uses of Dermi Cream

Benefits of Dermi Cream

In Treatment of Skin infections

Dermi 5 Cream is a combination of medicines used to treat skin infections caused by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. It kills and stops the growth of infection causing microorganisms, thereby clearing the infection and relieving the symptoms. It also blocks the release of chemicals that cause symptoms such as itching, redness and swelling. Therefore this medicine relieves the inflammation due to these infections.
You should use Dermi 5 Cream for as long as it is prescribed, even if your symptoms disappear, otherwise they may come back. Depending on the type of infection you are treating, this may be several weeks. Even after your infection is completely cured, you may have to apply it occasionally to prevent the symptoms from returning.

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.

Q. How to use Dermi 5 Cream?

Follow the directions given by the doctor. Apply the medication thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas. Dermi 5 Cream is usually applied two or three times a day. Wash your hands after using Dermi 5 Cream, unless it is used for treating skin infection on the hands.

Q. Can I overuse Dermi 5 Cream?

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 5 Cream?

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 5 Cream when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop taking Dermi 5 Cream 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 5 Cream?

$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.
