Setrabet 2% Cream is an antifungal medicine used to treat fungal infections of the skin. It works by killing the fungus that causes infections such as athlete’s foot, Dhobie Itch, thrush, ringworm, and dry, flaky skin.
Setrabet 2% Cream should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. Use it regularly to get the most benefit. Do not use more than you need, as that will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Do not use the medicine for longer than prescribed and let the doctor know if your condition does not improve after 2 to 4 weeks of treatment. The effects of the medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean, dry, and washing hands before and after use. If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.
The most common side effects of using Setrabet 2% Cream include application site reactions such as burning, irritation, itching, and redness. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In case of accidental contact, wash your eyes with water and seek immediate medical attention.
It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. Let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
