Description of Lotrisone Cream
Lotrisone Cream is a combination topical cream used to treat infections caused by fungus such as athlete’s foot, jock itch and ringworm. The generic name of the drug is Clotrimazole/Betamethasone.
You may only buy Lotrisone Cream if you have a prescription from your doctor. Read the instructions carefully and if you have any doubt regarding how to use Lotrisone cream, ask your pharmacist or doctor. Wash your hands properly before administering the cream. Wash the affected area with soap and dry it. Apply the cream and gently rub to evenly spread the medicine. Don’t cover the affected area without your doctor’s consent. If you are using the cream on the groin area, don’t use it for more than two weeks. Wear loose-fitting clothes during treatment. Wash your hands immediately after using the cream. Lotrisone Cream is for external use. Make sure that the cream does not come in contact with your eyes and mouth.
Indications & Dosage of Lotrisone Cream
Lotrisone Cream has anti-fungal and corticosteroid elements. It prevents the growth of fungi by weakening the fungal cell membrane. It also acts as anti-itching and anti-inflammatory agent.
Lotrisone Cream must be applied on the affected area two times a day. Use the cream on a regular basis to get the best results. You may find improvements after using the cream for a few days. Complete the course of treatment as there are chances for recurrence of the infection if you stop the medication midway. If you do not find any improvement after two weeks, consult your doctor. Don’t use the cream for a longer period than prescribed by the doctor. Don’t use Lotrisone Cream for diaper rash. Talk to your doctor if you can use any other medicines or cleansers during treatment. You must use the cream everyday at the same time. If you miss a dose, apply the cream as soon as you remember. If it is time for the next dose, skip the missed dose. Don’t apply an excess of the drug in an attempt to make up for a missed dose. In case of an overdose, seek immediate medical attention.
You must store Lotrisone Cream at room temperature away from heat, direct light and moisture. Keep it away from the reach of children.
