Description
Lulican 1 % Cream is an antifungal medicine. It is used to treat fungal skin infections such as athlete's foot ((itchy, scaly, and white patches on the feet and between the toes), jock itch (red and itchy rashes in warm and moist areas of the body), ringworm (red, itchy, and circular-shaped rashes with clear skin in the middle affecting the skin, scalp, or nails affecting different parts of the body), etc. It works by killing the fungi by damaging its cell membrane (protective covering). Thus, it prevents the spread of fungal infections. Lulican 1 % Cream may cause some side effects like burning sensation, irritation, itching, and redness at the site of application. These symptoms last only for a few days and disappear with time. Consult your doctor if these side effects do not resolve by themselves or worsen. Do not use this cream if you are allergic to it. Lulican 1 % Cream is for external use only. Use it regularly as directed by your doctor. Wash and dry the affected area before application. Spread a thin layer of the cream over the affected area. Do not cover with bandages unless directed by your doctor. Avoid contact with your eyes, nose, or mouth. In case it comes in contact with such areas, rinse with plenty of water. Your skin condition will improve in one to two weeks of application. If you do not see any improvement, consult your doctor. Lulican 1 % Cream may not be suitable for all people. Inform your doctor about all your health problems and the ongoing medications. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant or are breastfeeding.
