About CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM

CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM belongs to the class of 'antiseptics and disinfectants' primarily used to treat common skin infections. It treats and prevents skin infections in minor burns, lacerations (deep cut in the skin), cuts, and abrasions (the first layer of skin is scraped off). Skin infection occurs when foreign microorganisms like fungus or bacteria invade the skin and affect the tissues.

CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM contains Povidone Iodine. It works by inhibiting the growth of infection-causing microbes. As a small molecule, iodine can easily penetrate microorganisms and oxidizes essential proteins, nucleotides, and fatty acids, leading to cell death. CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM is effective against bacteria, fungi, viruses, and protozoa.

CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM is for external use only. CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM may cause common side effects like red or inflamed skin, peeling skin, dry skin, and irritation at the application site. These side effects gradually resolve during the treatment and do not require medical attention. However, if the side effects persist longer, please seek medical help.

Brief your medical history to the doctor if you are allergic to iodine or povidone. Let your doctor know if you have thyroid diseases, liver, and kidney problems before starting CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM. Please tell your doctor if you are undergoing any lithium therapy or radioactive iodine treatment. Do not use CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM before or after radioiodine scintigraphy or radioiodine treatment of thyroid carcinoma. Please consult your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to conceive or are a lactating mother before using CIPLADINE OINTMENT 125GM.
