Frequently asked questions about Apderm Products

Frequently asked questions about Methylprednisolone

Q. Can we use Apderm Cream in infections?
No, Apderm Cream should not be used in infections. It is a steroid medication which suppresses the immune system and increases the risk of infections. The risk of bacterial infections may increase if the area being treated is covered with a dressing after using Apderm Cream. In case the inflammatory lesions get infected or there is any spread of infection, consult your doctor immediately. The doctor will withdraw the use of Apderm Cream and provide appropriate antimicrobial therapy.
Q. How to use Apderm Cream?
Before using Apderm Cream, clean and dry the affected area. Gently and thoroughly massage it into the skin. Be careful not to get the medication in your eyes or mouth. If Apderm Cream gets in your eyes accidentally, wash with plenty of water and call your doctor if your eyes are irritated.
Q. Can I stop taking Apderm Cream when my symptoms are relieved?
No, do not stop taking Apderm Cream even if you feel better. Your symptoms may improve before your treatment is complete. Still, it is advised to complete the full course of treatment. Stopping Apderm Cream before the prescribed duration may bring back your symptoms of the skin. Consult your doctor if you have any doubts regarding the use or symptoms associated with Apderm Cream.
