Monila Plus Cream 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. If there is an accidental exposure of the medicine to the eyes or mouth, you must wash immediately.

The course of treatment should be completed for better efficacy.

How Monila Plus Cream works

Monila Plus 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.

Q. What are the precautions needed to be taken while using Monila Plus?

Monila Plus should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the advised period of time.
