How Fourderm Cream works

Fourderm Cream is a combination of four medicines: Chlorhexidine Gluconate, Clobetasol, Miconazole and Neomycin. Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic which effectively cleans out the affected area of skin to prevent infection. Clobetasol is a steroid which works by blocking 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 while Neomycin is an antibiotic which kills bacteria that cause skin infections. Together, they treat your skin infection effectively.

Q. What precautions should I take while using Fourderm?
Fourderm 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. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Fourderm for long periods?
The dosage and duration of using Fourderm should be strictly according to the doctor’s advice. This medicine contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood circulation 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 the application. Veins beneath the skin become visible because of the thinning and weakening of the skin. There could also be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
