Overview

Introduction

Keto-B Lotion is a combination of two medicines that effectively treats fungal skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of inflammation, redness and swelling. It also kills infection-causing microorganisms and prevents infection.

Keto-B Lotion is strictly advised for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration advised by your doctor. Apply it only on the affected areas of the skin. Avoid unnecessary sun exposure and cover the treated areas with clothing or use a sunscreen before stepping out in the sun. Drink plenty of water and use moisturizer as it may lead to dryness of mouth, lips, and eyes. It is advised, not to have any cosmetic procedures during the treatment.

Use of Keto-B Lotion may lead to a few common side effects like itching, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. If these side effects do not improve with time or worsen, inform your doctor.

How Keto-B Lotion works

Keto-B Lotion is a combination of two medicines: Beclometasone and Ketoconazole, which treats 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.

I have been experiencing fungal infections, I develop rings and rashes and they all itch like anything. I formed scars because of it. I have been taking Grisovin FP 250 mg however as long I take it I am relieved, even if I miss it for 1 day I start getting fungus back. On top of that Grisovin FP is difficult to find now, please suggest.

FAQs

Q. How to use Keto-B?

Follow the directions given by the doctor on the medicine. Apply the medicine 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 complete the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.

Q. What precautions need to be taken while using Keto-B?

Keto-B should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than advised periods of time. 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 be used by the patient and never be given 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 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.
