BENEFITS OF CANDID-B CREAM

In Treatment of Fungal skin infections

Candid-B Cream is a combination of two medicines, Clotrimazole and Beclometasone, used to treat skin infections caused by fungi. These include infections like athlete’s foot, ringworm, vaginal thrush, and sweat rash. Clotrimazole works by killing and stopping the growth of fungi, thereby clearing the infection and relieving the symptoms. Beclometasone blocks the release of chemicals that cause symptoms such as itching, redness, and swelling. Therefore this medicine relieves the inflammation due to these infections.

You should use this medicine for as long as it is prescribed, even if your symptoms disappear, otherwise they may come back. Depending on the type of infection you are treating, this may be several weeks. Even after your skin is completely cured, you may have to apply it occasionally to prevent the symptoms from returning.

 

HOW TO USE CANDID-B CREAM

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the cream. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

 

HOW CANDID-B CREAM WORKS

Candid-B Cream is a combination of two medicines: Beclometasone and Clotrimazole which treat skin infections. Beclometasone is a steroid which blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the skin red, swollen and itchy. Clotrimazole is an antifungal which stops the growth of fungi on the skin by preventing them from forming their own protective covering.
