Dipcort containing Miconazole Nitrate + Hydrocortisone acetate
Dipcort cream is a medicine which is used to treat inflamed conditions of the skin such as eczema and dermatitis which may be caused by infection with certain fungi and bacteria.
The cream contains the following ingredients:
Miconazole nitrate - an antifungal which works by destroying both the fungus that causes the infection and some of the associated bacteria which may also be present.
Hydrocortisone - a mild 'topical steroid' which reduces inflammation, swelling, redness and itching of the skin.
PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor for advice before using this medicine.
- You are allergic to Miconazole nitrate, hydrocortisone, any of the other ingredients of this medicine or to other similar antifungal medicines.
- You have any other skin problems such as cold sores, herpes, chicken pox or shingles. Only use it for the skin problem that you showed the doctor
- The inflamed skin is on your face. You should not use Dipcort cream on your face, unless your doctor has told you to
- You are using a ‘barrier’ method of contraception. This includes condoms or diaphragms. This is because Dipcort cream can damage the latex and stop them from working properly.
- Apply a small amount of Dipcort cream to the affected area and rub it in gently until the cream has disappeared
- Unless the infected skin is on your hands, wash your hands carefully after applying the cream to avoid spreading the infection to other parts of the body or to other people.
- Clothing which comes into contact with the infected areas should be washed and changed frequently.
- Unless your doctor tells you differently,
- Apply a small amount of Dipcort cream to the affected area 2 or 3 times each day
- If your skin problem does not improve in 7 days, tell your doctor
