INTRODUCTION

TUFDERM CREAM contains Clobetasol, which belongs to the group of medicines called Topical corticosteroids. It is used in adults and adolescents (aged 12 years or above) to treat inflammatory skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis that have not responded to milder steroid creams or ointments.

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated skin disease that speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells, causing patches of thick red skin and silvery scales, typically on the elbows, knees, scalp, lower back, face, palms, and soles, but can affect other places also. Eczema (also called dermatitis) includes several different types of skin swelling, causing dry, itchy skin and rashes on the face, inside the elbows, behind the knees, and on the hands and feet. Scratching the skin can make it turn red, swell and itch even more.

TUFDERM CREAM is not recommended for use in patients with other bacterial, fungal, or viral infections (such as herpes simplex, chicken pox and tuberculosis). Before using TUFDERM CREAM, inform your doctor if you have a skin infection, diabetes, adrenal gland problem, scheduled surgery, acne, plaques around your mouth, underarms, anus, or genitals and liver diseases.

TUFDERM CREAM should be used during pregnancy only if recommended by your doctor. TUFDERM CREAM should be used with caution by breastfeeding women. TUFDERM CREAM is not recommended for use by children under 12 years of age. The most common side effects of using TUFDERM CREAM are thinning of the skin, widening of small veins in the skin, skin discomfort and dryness. Contact your doctor if any of your symptoms get worse or persist.

USES OF TUFDERM CREAM

HOW TUFDERM CREAM WORKS

TUFDERM CREAM is a topical corticosteroid with anti-itching, anti-inflammatory and vasoconstrictive properties. It acts by blocking the release of certain chemical mediators (prostaglandins, leukotrienes) in the body that causes pain, inflammation and swelling. As a result, it effectively reduces the skin redness, itchiness, inflammation, swelling, and irritation associated with certain skin problems.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Always apply TUFDERM CREAM as directed by your physician. It is for external use only. Wash your hands before and after application. Apply a thin layer of TUFDERM CREAM on the affected area. Do not cover the affected site after applying TUFDERM CREAM.

Avoid contact of TUFDERM CREAM with your eyes (including eyelids), ears, nose, armpits or with other mucous membranes (such as the vagina). Do not apply TUFDERM CREAM to the damaged skin.
