Product introduction

Ozx Cream is an antimicrobial medicine. It is used for the topical treatment of impetigo. It can be used in adults as well as pediatric patients 2 months of age and older. It inhibits the infection-causing bacteria and prevents their growth and further spread of the infection.

Ozx Cream is only for external use. Use it in the dose and duration as prescribed by the doctor. Read the package insert thoroughly before using the medicine. Apply a thin layer of the medicine topically to the affected area twice daily or as directed by your doctor. You can consider covering the treated area with a sterile bandage or gauze dressing. Make sure to wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. If you see no changes after 5 days, let your doctor know.

Ozx Cream is generally safe with no common side effects. However, it may cause erythema (redness and often small, red, pus-filled bumps on the face) and dermatitis (scaly patches and red skin, mainly on the scalp, specifically called seborrheic dermatitis) in some people. If you experience any such side effects, let your doctor know.

Avoid contact of the medicine with your mouth, eyes, or inside of the nose. In case of accidental contact, rinse it off with plenty of water. Do not use the medicine if you have any history of allergic reaction to any of the components present in this medicine.
