About Costrova Capsule 10's

Costrova Capsule 10's is a dermatological medication primarily used to treat various skin infections like eczema, psoriasis, minor burns or cuts, wounds, impetigo (red sores on the face), and folliculitis (infected hair follicles). Eczema is a condition in which skin patches become inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough. Psoriasis is a skin disorder in which skin cells multiply and form bumpy (uneven) red patches covered with white scales. Costrova Capsule 10's will not work for fungal and viral skin infections.

Costrova Capsule 10's is composed of Gentamicin (antibiotic) and Betacarotene (antioxidant). Gentamicin is an aminoglycoside antibiotic used in treating bacterial infections of the skin. It prevents the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Betacarotene is a plant pigment that belongs to the class of carotenoids. It has antioxidant properties and protects the skin against ultraviolet radiations from the sun. It helps in treating erythropoietic protoporphyria (an inherited disorder of sensitivity to the light).

Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose of Costrova Capsule 10's that suits your infection. Common side effects of Costrova Capsule 10's include skin irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects usually do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist longer, please seek medical help.
