Propyderm E Cream


Introduction

Propyderm E Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of various types of skin infections. It minimizes symptoms of inflammation such as redness, swelling, and itching by acting against the infection-causing microorganisms.

Propyderm E 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 using 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 and consult the doctor about this 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 Propyderm E Cream works

Propyderm E Cream is a combination of three medicines: Clobetasol, Clotrimazole and Fusidic Acid, which treats skin infections.Clobetasol is a steroid medicine which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi by preventing them from forming their own protective covering. Fusidic Acid is an antibiotic. It stops bacterial growth by inhibiting synthesis of essential proteins required by the bacteria to carry out vital functions.

FAQs

Q. What would happen if I use a higher than the recommended dose of Propyderm E Cream for long periods?

Propyderm E Cream should be used only for the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. This medicine contains clobetasol which when used in higher doses and for longer periods can get absorbed in the blood circulation and cause adrenal suppression and Cushing's syndrome. It can cause weight gain, high blood pressure and rounding of the face. Its application could cause a change in color of skin at the site of application. Veins beneath the skin become visible due to thinning and weakening of the skin. There could be an increased hair growth. If you experience an increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What are the contraindications associated with the use of Propyderm E Cream?

Use of Propyderm E Cream is considered to be harmful for patients with known allergy to any of the components or excipients of this medicine. Avoid its use in case of any fungal infections (ringworm or athlete's foot), viral infections (herpes or chickenpox) or for treatment of acne or rosacea. Consult your doctor before using it for any condition.

Q. What are the instructions for the storage and disposal of Propyderm E Cream?

Keep this medicine in the packet or the container it came in. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.

Q. Can I stop taking Propyderm E Cream when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop using Propyderm E Cream 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 should I take while using Propyderm E Cream?

Propyderm E Cream should not be used on the face and contact with eyes should be avoided. Do not apply a bandage or dressing on the area being treated, as this will increase absorption of the medicine and increase the risk of side effects. This medicine should only be used for the condition it is prescribed for. Do not use it for any other condition without consulting your doctor. Do not give it to other people even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. How to use Propyderm E Cream?

Propyderm E Cream should be used as advised by the doctor or as per the instructions on the label of the medicine. Apply a thin layer of Propyderm E Cream to cover the affected areas. The dose would depend on the condition for which it is prescribed. Wash your hands after using Propyderm E Cream unless it is used for treating infection of the hands. Avoid any contact with the eyes.

Q. Can I overuse Propyderm E Cream?

No, do not overuse Propyderm E Cream for long periods or on large areas of skin, than recommended by the doctor. Overusing the medicine can result in too much medicine being absorbed into the body. This may lead to thinning or weakening of the skin and other serious side effects. If you are experiencing increased severity of your symptoms, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.
