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

However, in some patients it may cause common side effects like transient burning, itching and irritation at the application site. It may also cause other uncommon or rare side effects. Inform your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any persistent problem while using this medicine.
Q. Can I stop taking Lotril B when my symptoms are relieved?
No, do not stop taking Lotril B without completing the full course of treatment. Your symptoms may improve and you may start feeling better before the infection is completely cured but you should complete your advised duration.
Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Lotril B?
Lotril B should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised period 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 only be used by the patient and not shared with others even if their condition appears to be the same.
Q. How to use Lotril B?
Follow the directions given by the healthcare provider on the medication. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected area. Wash your hands after using Lotril B, unless it is used for treating skin infections on the hands.
Q. Can I use a higher than the recommended dose of Lotril B?
No, do not use a higher than recommended dose of Lotril B. You should also avoid using it for long periods or on large areas of skin. It 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.
