INTRODUCTION

TRIBEN contains clotrimazole which belongs to the group of medicines called azole antifungal agents. It is used to treat fungal skin infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, fungal nappy rash (in babies) and fungal sweat rash. It can also be used to treat irritation of the vulva (external thrush) or irritation at the tip of the penis (penile thrush). External thrush is a common fungal infection caused by the aggravation of the fungi, that usually lives harmlessly in the vagina or vulva.

Penile thrush often occurs by having sexual intercourse with the partner having vaginal thrush and is characterized by redness and soreness of the penis with a white non-smelling penile discharge. Topically applied clotrimazole acts by blocking the biosynthesis of fungal ergosterol which leads to the disruption of fungal cell membrane and inhibition of fungal growth. This medicine is for external use only. Do not swallow it. Your doctor will decide the duration of the therapy depending upon the type of the infection.

Along with the treatment, try to keep the infected area clean by washing it daily. Always wear cotton underwear and loose-fitting clothes and change your sanitary protection regularly. Try not to share your towels and bathmats with other people, as it could prevent the spread of infection. The most common side effects of TRIBEN are application site redness, swelling, itching, burning or peeling. Contact your doctor if any of the symptom bothers you. If you are pregnant or think you may be pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor for advice before using. Your doctor will decide whether you should use this medicine or not.

USES OF TRIBEN

  • Treats fungal skin infections such as athlete’s foot, ringworm, fungal nappy rash and fungal sweat rash
  • Treats vaginal and penile thrush

HOW TRIBEN WORKS

Clotrimazole exerts its antifungal activity by inhibiting the biosynthesis of ergosterol, an essential constituent of fungal cell membrane which helps to keep the fungal cell intact and directly promotes its growth. Inhibition of ergosterol biosynthesis damages the fungal cell integrity and leads to the inhibition of fungal growth.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Wash the infected area thoroughly and pat it dry. Apply a thin layer of this medicine evenly to the affected areas two or three times daily or as directed by your physician and gently rub it. Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration for you depending upon your age, body weight and type or severity of the infection.

It is for external use only. Do not swallow the medicine. Avoid contact with eyes or mouth, if happens rinse it thoroughly with water. Continue to apply this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
