About Candid Powder 100 gm

Candid Powder 100 gm belongs to a group of medications known as antifungals,  used to treat fungal infections. Fungal infection occurs when a fungus invades and affects the tissue in the body. Symptoms of a fungal infection include rash, irritation, redness and scaling of the skin.

Candid Powder 100 gm is composed of two medicines: Clotrimazole (antifungal) and Lidocaine (local anaesthetic). Clotrimazole is an antifungal medication that works by stopping the growth of fungi by causing damage and leakage to the fungal cell membrane. Lidocaine belongs to the class of local anaesthetics. It reduces pain by blocking the pain signals from nerves to the brain. It causes temporary numbness/loss of feeling in the skin and mucous membranes.

Your doctor will advise the appropriate dose that suits your infection. If the medicine gets into your eyes, nose, mouth or vagina, rinse with cold water. Candid Powder 100 gm has common side effects like itching, dryness, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Let your doctor know if you have any allergic reactions to Candid Powder 100 gm or any other medications. Please check with your doctor before using Candid Powder 100 gm, if you have severe liver disease, heart and kidney diseases, and blood disorders (methemoglobinemia, a condition in which less oxygen is delivered to the cells). Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should consult the doctor before starting Candid Powder 100 gm. If nursing mothers apply Candid Powder 100 gm to their breasts for treatment, it is advised to wash the affected area thoroughly before breastfeeding the baby.
