Introduction

Halobet MZ 0.05%/2% Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of fungal skin infections. It works by killing microorganisms that cause infection. It also blocks the release of certain chemical messengers that cause redness, swelling, and itching.

Halobet MZ 0.05%/2% Cream should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you needed, it will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Skin infections will usually get better after 2 to 6 weeks. Do not use the medicine for longer than your doctor has told you to and let him or her know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 6 weeks of treatment. The effects of medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry, and washing hands before and after treating the infection.

Using of the medicine may cause burning sensation, irritation, redness, and swelling at the site of application, and skin thinning. These are temporary and usually go away with time. However, if they persist or worsen, let your doctor know.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. The medicine is not recommended for pregnant women. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult their doctors before using this medicine.
