FAQs

Q. Can I stop taking FM Derma when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop taking FM Derma 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 FM Derma?

FM Derma should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised periods of time. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as 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 to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use FM Derma?

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

Q. Can I overuse FM Derma?

No, do not overuse FM Derma for long periods or on large areas of skin. Follow the doctor’s advice strictly. Overusing the medicine can result in too much medicine being absorbed 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 the storage and disposal of FM Derma?

Keep this medicine in the packet or the container 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.
