Terbinaforce plus contains very strong steroid -clobetasol. As per latest govt guidelines this medicine combination is banned. Initially with this cream you will find all your skin problems disappearing very quickly. But once you stop it the rash will not only appear back but you will end up with some PERMANENT side effects of this cream like stretch marks,thinning of the skin, reddish spots, increased sensitivity of the skin. So please stop it now before its too late. Also with continuous usage of this cream the fungus becomes resistant and you may need to be on antifungal treatment for a very long time thus increasing the total cost of therapy and mental agony. There is added risk of spreading the infection in family members. Rather than self medicating please consult a qualified dermatologist for the same.
