Introduction

Exel M Skin 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.

Exel M Skin 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. 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.

The most common side effect of this medicine includes itching, dryness, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. These are usually 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 taking 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 take this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine. You should consult the doctor about prescribing an alternative medicine for your condition.

How Exel M Cream works

Exel M Skin Cream is a combination of two medicines: Clobetasol 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. Miconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.

FAQs

Q. What precautions should be taken while using Exel M Skin Cream?

Exel M Skin Cream should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the medicine and increase the risk of side-effects.

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

Q. Can I stop taking Exel M Skin Cream when my symptoms are relieved?

Q. How to use Exel M Skin Cream?

Exel M Skin Cream should be used as advised by the doctor or as per the instructions on the label of the medicine.

If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
