Overview

Introduction

Phytoral B Cream is a combination medicine. It is used to treat various types of fungal skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of skin infection such as redness, swelling, itching, etc., by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Phytoral B Cream is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin with clean and dry hands. Wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. If it gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina rinse with water. It may take several days to weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. The course of the treatment should be completed to ensure better efficacy of the medicine. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

This is usually a safe medicine, however, it may cause burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Serious side effects are rare. You must consult the doctor if you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.).

Before taking this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine. You should consult the doctor about prescribing an alternative medicine for your condition. During the course of the treatment, do not touch or scratch the infected skin areas as this may worsen or spread the infection.

How Phytoral B Cream works

Phytoral B Cream is a combination of two medicines: Beclometasone and Ketoconazole, which treats fungal skin infections. Beclometasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Ketoconazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.

FAQs

Q. How to use Phytoral B?

Follow the directions given by the doctor on the medicine. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas. Phytoral B is usually applied two or three times a day to the affected areas of skin. Wash your hands after using Phytoral B, unless it is used for treating skin infection on the hands.

Q. Can I stop taking Phytoral B when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop taking Phytoral B and complete the full course of treatment even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the infection is completely cured.

Q. What precautions need to be taken while using Phytoral B?

Phytoral B should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than advised periods of time. Do not apply a bandage or dressing to the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the preparation and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should be used by the patient and never be given to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. Will Phytoral B be more effective if taken more than prescribed?

No, Phytoral B will not be more effective if overused. Overusing the medicine can result in too much medicine being absorbed into the body.
