How Diclob NM Cream works

Diclob NM Cream is a combination of three medicines: Clobetasol, Miconazole and Neomycin, 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. Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Neomycin is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions.

FAQs

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Diclob NM?

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. Can I stop taking Diclob NM when my symptoms are relieved?

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

Q. What precautions should I take while using Diclob NM?

Diclob NM 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 the 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. Do not give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Diclob NM?

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

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Diclob NM for long periods?

Diclob NM should be used only for the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. This medicine contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood 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 contraindications associated with the use of Diclob NM?

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