Introduction

Oxicojen Cream is an antifungal medicine used to treat fungal infections of the skin. It works by killing the fungus that causes infections such as athlete’s foot, Dhobie Itch, thrush, ringworm, and dry, flaky skin.

Oxicojen Cream should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it. Do not use more than you need, it will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Skin infections will usually get better after 2 to 4 weeks. Do not use the cream for longer than your doctor has told you to and let him or her know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. The effects of the medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry, and washing hands before and after treating the infection.  If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.

The most common side effects of using this cream include a burning sensation and irritation, dryness, peeling, or blistering of the skin. Occasionally it can cause thinning of your hair. These are not usually serious, but you should call your doctor if you think you might have a severe allergic reaction. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing or breathing problems, feeling dizzy or faint, and nausea. Get emergency help if this happens. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In case of direct contact, wash your eyes with water and seek immediate medical attention.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Ask your doctor if it is safe.

FAQs

Q. For how long do I need to continue applying Oxicojen Cream? Can I stop if the symptoms have completely disappeared?

The duration of the treatment depends on the type of infection. In general, the treatment is continued for 1 month for tinea infection and at least 15 days for candida infection. Do not stop the treatment on your own even if you feel better because the infection may come back as it takes some time to kill the fungus completely.

Q. What precautions are necessary while applying Oxicojen Cream?

Always thoroughly wash your hands before and after applying Oxicojen Cream. If the feet are infected, they should be washed and dried thoroughly, especially between the toes, before applying Oxicojen Cream. It should be applied to form a thin and uniform layer onto the affected areas daily and should be rubbed in gently.

Q. Is Oxicojen Cream safe to use in children?

Oxicojen Cream is safe for use in children provided it is used in the recommended doses for the recommended period of time. Minor side effects may occur but usually they do not become bothersome. However, if you develop a burning sensation or areas of severe redness, itching, then stop the medicine and contact your doctor.

Q. What measures should be taken for a fast recovery?

Keep the affected skin areas clean and dry and avoid excessive rubbing. The itchiness may give you an urge to scratch but avoid scratching as it will damage the surface of skin, spreading the infection further. Do not share towels, bath mats, etc. with other people as you could spread the infection to them.

Q. Does Oxicojen Cream have any side effects?

Yes, Oxicojen Cream can cause side effects but not everyone gets affected by them. You may suffer from mild and transient rash or burning sensations that generally disappear rapidly.

Q. How to store Oxicojen Cream?

Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed, and out of the reach of children. The medication should be stored at room temperature (20°C to 25°C) and away from light, excess heat, and moisture (not in the bathroom).
