About Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm

Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm is used to treat various fungal and bacterial skin infections. It treats skin inflammation due to allergies or irritants, eczema (inflamed, itchy, cracked and rough skin patches), psoriasis (skin cells multiply rapidly to form bumpy (uneven) red patches covered with white scales), ringworm, athlete’s foot (fungal infection between the toes), jock itch (fungal infection in the skin of the genitals, inner thighs and buttocks), candidiasis (yeast infection), insect bites, and stings.

Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm contains Clotrimazole (antifungal), Neomycin (antibiotic) and Beclomethasone (steroid). Clotrimazole is an antifungal medication that stops the growth of fungi by causing damage and leakage to the fungal cell membrane. Neomycin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used in treating bacterial and fungal infections of the skin. It prevents the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. On the other hand, Beclomethasone is a corticosteroid and blocks prostaglandin's production (chemical messengers) that make the affected area red, swollen and itchy.

Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm is for topical (for skin) use only. If the medicine gets into your eyes, nose or mouth, rinse with cold water. Common side effects of Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm include erythema (redness of the skin), stinging, blistering, peeling, pruritus (irritation of the skin causing an urge to scratch), itching, dryness and burning sensation at the application site. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, please consult your doctor.

Do not use topical Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm on open wounds, blisters and lesions. Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm is not for oral, ophthalmic (eye) or intravaginal use. Do not put a dressing or bandage on the affected area since it increases the risk of side effects. Please check with your doctor before using Clotridep-BN Cream 20 gm, if you have liver or kidney diseases.
