About Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml

Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml is a combination of two medicines that are primarily used to treat eczema and psoriasis. Eczema is a condition in which skin patches become inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough. Some types of eczema can also lead to blisters (a small bubble on the skin that is filled with serum and is caused by friction, burning, or other damage). Psoriasis is a skin disorder in which skin cells multiply up to 10 times faster than normal which leads to the build-up of skin into bumpy (uneven) red patches covered with white scales. These can grow anywhere, but most commonly they appear on the scalp, elbows, knees and lower back.

Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml comprises clobetasol and salicylic acid. Clobetasol is a steroid that works by blocking the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that are responsible for making the skin red, swollen, and itchy. Salicylic Acid is a keratolytic medicine (that softens, separates, and causes desquamation (peeling) of the cornified epithelium or horny layer of skin) which breaks down the clumps of keratin, removes dead skin cells, and helps in softening of the skin. It also helps in the absorption of Clobetasol into the skin.

Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml should be used in the dose and duration as advised by the doctor. It is advised to check the label for directions before use. It is for external use only. Make sure to wash your hands before and after using this medicine. Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml is generally safe to use. Some may experience side effects such as peeling of the skin, thinning of the skin, burning, itching, irritation, and redness at the application site. Please consult your doctor if you experience a worsening of any side effect.

Do not stop using Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml without consulting your doctor. Please inform your doctor if you are pregnant or are suffering from any other disease. Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml is safe to use in breastfeeding mothers. Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Amwisal 6% Lotion 50 ml.
