About Clozolas B Lotion

Clozolas B Lotion is used to treat fungal infections, such as ringworm of the foot (tinea pedis or athlete's foot), ringworm of the groin (tinea cruris or jock itch), and ringworm of the body (tinea corporis). Fungal infection occurs when a fungus invades and affects the tissue on the skin.  Symptoms of a fungal infection include skin rash, irritation, redness and scaling of the skin. 

Clozolas B Lotion is composed of two medicines: Clotrimazole (antifungal) and Beclometasone (steroid). Clotrimazole is an antifungal medication used to treat various fungal infections, such as vaginal yeast infections, oral thrush, and ringworm. Clotrimazole stops the growth of fungi by causing damage and leakage to the fungal cell membrane. It is also used to treat athlete’s foot and jock itch. Beclometasone belongs to the class of corticosteroids, which blocks the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers) that make the affected area red, swollen and itchy. Beclometasone effectively treats redness and itchiness, eczema (inflamed and itchy skin), psoriasis (skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches), and dermatitis (red and itchy skin).

Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose that suits your infection. Clozolas B Lotion is for topical (for skin use) only. If the medicine gets into your eyes, nose, mouth or vagina, rinse with cold water. Clozolas B Lotion has common side effects as every drug does. These side effects include itching, dryness, redness, and burning sensation at the application site.

Let your doctor know if you have any allergic reactions to Clotrimazole, Beclometasone or any other medications. 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 Clozolas B Lotion, if you have adrenal gland problems, cataract or glaucoma, liver disease, and other skin infections. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult the doctor before starting Clozolas B Lotion. If nursing mothers apply Clozolas B Lotion to their breasts for treatment, it is advised to wash the affected area thoroughly before breastfeeding the baby.
