How Keto-B Cream works

Keto-B Cream is a combination of two medicines: Beclometasone and Ketoconazole which treat fungal skin infections. Beclometasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Ketoconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.

User Feedback


Q. How to use Keto-B?
Follow the directions given by the doctor on the medicine. Apply the medicine to the affected skin areas thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas. Keto-B is usually applied two or three times a day to the affected areas of skin. Wash your hands after using Keto-B, unless it is used for treating skin infection on the hands.
Q. Can I stop taking Keto-B when my symptoms are relieved?
No, do not stop taking Keto-B and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cleared.
Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Keto-B?
Keto-B should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer periods of time than you have been advised. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side-effects. This medicine should only be used by the patient, never give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.
Q. Will Keto-B be more effective if taken more than prescribed?
No, Keto-B will not be more effective if overused. 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 Keto-B?
Keep this medicine in the packet or container it came in, tightly closed. Store it as mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children, and other people.
