Expert Advice

  • Optimix Cream treats bacterial skin infections such as impetigo and infected dermatitis.
  • Don't use it for more often or for longer than advised by your doctor.
  • Apply it gently to the infected area of skin three to four times a day.
  • Avoid contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse off with water if you accidentally get the cream in these areas.

FAQs

Q. Is Optimix an antifungal or a steroid? What is it used for?

Optimix is neither an antifungal nor a steroid. It is an antibiotic which is effective against bacteria. It is used to treat bacterial infections of the skin like impetigo (a weeping, crusty and swollen patch of skin), infected cuts and grazes and infected dermatitis (skin becomes red, slightly swollen and painful due to infection).

Q. For how long is it required to use Optimix?

Use the Optimix for the time advised by your doctor. The treatment with Optimix usually stretches for 1-2 weeks although it can be longer in some cases.

Q. What precautions should I take while applying Optimix?

Optimix is meant to be applied only on skin. Always wash your hands before applying it. Unless you are using the cream to treat your hands, always wash your hands after using Optimix. Do not insert it into your body or swallow it. If it accidentally enters your eyes, wash your eyes thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, contact your doctor immediately.

Q. What is drug resistance? Does it mean that even Optimix may turn ineffective?

Sometimes the bacteria get modified in your body and the medicine stops working. This is called drug resistance. Extended or recurrent use of a medicine may increase the risk of developing resistance to that medicine. Your body may develop resistance for Optimix too. Therefore, to prevent drug resistance, you should use Optimix in the right amount and for the duration recommended by the doctor.

Q. What should prompt me to stop using Optimix?

If you develop a severe allergic reaction after using Optimix, wash the area thoroughly and do not use the medicine again. The symptoms of an allergic reaction include severe rash, difficulty in breathing, stinging or burning in the eye which does not go away, and swelling of face (especially around the eyes or eyelids). You should immediately seek medical support of your doctor or go to a nearby hospital.
