How Viclob S Lotion works

Viclob S Lotion is a combination of two medicines: Clobetasol and Salicylic Acid, which treats eczema and psoriasis. Clobetasol is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Salicylic Acid is a keratolytic medicine which breaks down keratin clumps, removes dead skin cells and softens the skin. It also enhances the absorption of Clobetasol into the skin.

FAQs

Q. What are the precautions that need to be taken while using Viclob S?

Viclob S should not be used on the face. Do not use the medication for longer than the 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 only be used by the patient and never give it to other people, even if their condition appears to be the same.

Q. Will Viclob S be more effective if taken more than prescribed?

No, Viclob S will not be more effective if overused. 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.

Q. Can I stop using Viclob S when my symptoms are relieved?

No, do not stop using Viclob S and complete the full course of treatment, even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before the disease is completely treated.

Q. What are the instructions for storage and disposal of Viclob S?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. 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. How to use Viclob S?

Follow the directions given by the doctor or provided on the medicine. Apply the medicine thinly and in sufficient quantity to cover the affected areas.
