About Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm

Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm is a dermatological combination medication used to reduce swelling, itching and redness caused due to certain fungal skin infections. Fungal infection is a skin disease in which a fungus attacks the skin tissue and causes infection. Fungal infections may be contagious (spread from one person to another).

Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm contains Nadifloxacin (antibiotics), Mometasone (corticosteroid) and Miconazole (antifungal). Nadifoxacin is bactericidal and works by killing bacteria that cause infections. It inhibits the repairing of bacterial cells and kills the bacteria, thereby preventing the infection's further spread. Mometasone blocks various chemical messengers (like histamine) involved in allergic and non-allergic mediated inflammation. It reduces inflammation, itchiness and redness by preventing infection-fighting white blood cells (WBCs) from travelling to the affected area of your body. Miconazole belongs to the antifungals class that works by causing holes in the fungal cell membranes and killing fungi.

Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm is only for external use. Some people may experience dry skin, itching, irritation, redness or burning sensation at the application site. Most of these side effects of Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or a nursing mother, it is advised to consult a doctor before using the Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm. Do not use Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm in more than prescribed doses or for prolonged periods as it may cause adverse effects. Do not wrap or cover the treated area with bandages unless your doctor advises. Avoid using Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm for more than five days in children and on the face. Do not apply Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm to broken skin or cuts. Do not swallow Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm. In case of accidental swallowing, contact a nearby poison control centre or consult a doctor immediately. Avoid smoking or going near naked flames, as this medicine catches fire and burns easily. If you have glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes, psoriasis, adrenal gland or liver problems, inform your doctor before taking Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm.

Uses of Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm

Skin infections

Medicinal Benefits

Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm is a combination of three drugs: Nadifloxacin, Mometasone and Miconazole. Afderm-Mn 15Gm Crm is used to reduce swelling, itching and redness caused due to fungal skin infections. Nadifoxacin is bactericidal and works by killing bacteria that cause infections. It inhibits the repairing of bacterial cells and kills the bacteria, thereby preventing the infection's further spread. Mometasone reduces inflammation, itchiness and redness by preventing infection-fighting white blood cells (WBCs) from travelling to the affected area. It also blocks the chemical messenger (histamine) responsible for causing allergic symptoms in our bodies. Miconazole is an antifungal that causes holes in the fungal cell membranes and kills fungi. Clearing fungal infections relieves cracking, burning, scaling and itching of the skin caused due to conditions.
