Oace Cream

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Oace Cream is a type of medicine known as a topical steroid. It is used to treat certain skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and rash. It helps reduce symptoms like swelling, itching and redness.

You should always use Oace Cream exactly as your doctor has told you. It is only for use on the skin but do not use the cream or ointment on your face for more than recommended. Do not cover the area you have treated with a bandage or plaster unless your doctor tells you to. You should use this medicine regularly but do not apply large amounts or use it for longer than prescribed. It should be spread thinly. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve after 2 weeks of treatment.

Oace Cream has a few potential side effects but not everyone will get them. These may include allergic skin reactions, bacterial skin infections, acne, thinning or a change in colour of the skin, burning, stinging and itching. Serious allergic reaction to this drug are rare but let your doctor know if you are bothered by side effects or they do not go away. Not all creams are likely to work for all skin conditions and may make some worse. Make sure you read the instructions that come with your medicine.

Let your doctor know about any medical issues you have, especially poor blood circulation, diabetes and immune system problems and about other medicines you are taking (particularly steroids).

Uses of Oace Cream

  • Skin conditions with inflammation & itching

Side effects of Oace Cream

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Oace

  • Dryness
  • Hypertrichosis (excessive hair growth)
  • Hair follicle inflammation

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Dryness
    Use mild cleansing creams or soaps rather than harsh or perfumed ones. Use warm water (not hot) and do not spend too long in the bath or shower. Long bathing hours or using harsh soaps can wash away natural oils. Dry your skin gently with a towel and apply moisturizer immediately after washing. Do not use alcohol-based products on your skin. Choose clothing fabrics that will not irritate your skin.
  • Coping with Hypertrichosis (excessive hair growth)
    Speak to your doctor as they may be able to help you by reducing your dose or by prescribing an alternate medicine. If you are very bothered by this side effect, do these at home to remove or lighten the hair such as shaving, waxing, plucking, using hair removal creams or bleaching.

How to use Oace Cream

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Oace Cream works

Oace Cream is a steroid. It works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy.

FAQs

Q. What is Oace? What is it used for?

Oace belongs to a group of medicines called steroids, also known as corticosteroids. Oace is used to treat various allergic skin conditions such as eczema and atopic dermatitis. Oace effectively reduces symptoms such as swelling, itching and redness associated with such conditions.

Q. How does Oace work?

Oace works by decreasing the inflammation caused by allergies. It reduces inflammation by blocking the release of certain natural substances that cause allergic symptoms such as swelling, redness and pain.

Q. How long does Oace take to start working?

The time required by Oace to start showing its effects may differ from person to person. Usually, it starts showing relief within 8 hours of starting Oace. It may even take several days before you see maximum benefits. In order to improve your symptoms faster, it is important to take the medicine regularly to gain maximum benefit from the medicine.

Q. Is Oace good for burns?

No, Oace should never be applied in those areas of the skin that have burns, cuts or scrapes. If Oace accidentally gets onto such areas, rinse the area thoroughly with water.

Q. What precautions do I need to take while using Oace?

Be careful not to get Oace into your eyes or mouth. If you happen to get it in your eyes, rinse off with plenty of water immediately and contact your doctor. You must not use Oace if you are allergic to it or any of its ingredients. Tell your doctor if you notice any allergic reaction while using it for the first time. Inform your doctor if you are taking any medicines regularly to prevent any allergic reaction with other medicines. Do not cover the area being treated with Oace with a bandage, as this may increase absorption of this medicine and increase the side effects. Do not use more than what is recommended to relieve your symptoms faster. Using more than what is advised will only increase the side effects.
