Indications of Neosten 20 Cream

  • Dermatophytes are responsible for all dermatomycoses (e.g.Trichophyton species).
  • Yeasts are responsible for all dermatomycoses (Candida species).
  • Molds and other fungi cause dermatomycoses.
  • Superinfections with these fungi are visible in skin disorders.

Interdigital mycoses (athlete’s foot), paronychias (related to nail mycoses), mycoses in skin folds, Candida vulvitis, Candida balanitis, Pityriasis versicolor, and erythrasma are some instances of skin infections mentioned above.

Pharmacology of Neosten 20 Cream

Clotrimazole works by weakening the permeability barrier in fungi’s cell membranes. Clotrimazole inhibits the formation of ergosterol, a key component of fungal cell membranes. The cell can no longer generate an intact and functional cell membrane if ergosterol synthesis is entirely or partially blocked. Because ergosterol supports fungal cell proliferation in a hormone-like manner, the foregoing events occur quickly, resulting in dose-dependent suppression of fungal growth.

Dosage & Administration of Neosten 20 Cream

Clotrimazole Cream: This should be thinly applied 2-3 times daily to the infected sites and rubbed in. On account of the excellent efficacy, a small amount of cream is usually sufficient for an area about the size of the palm. For the treatment to become a complete success, reliable and sufficiently long-time application of Clotrimazole Cream is important. The duration of treatment varies; it depends among other factors on the extent and localization of the disease.

Recommended duration of treatment-

  • Dermatomycoses: 3-4 weeks
  • Candida vulvitis and Candida balanitis: 1-2 weeks
  • Erythrasma and Pityriasis Versicolor: 3 weeks (approximately)

In fungal infection of the feet, to prevent relapse, treatment should be continued for about 2 weeks beyond the disappearance of all signs of disease. After washing, the feet should be thoroughly dried (particularly the spaces between the toes). Clotrimazole Cream is odorless, can be washed off, and does not stain clothing.

Clotrimazole topical solution: Apply this sparingly to the affected areas and rub in gently, two or three times daily.


Hypersensitivity to Clotrimazole.

Side Effects of Neosten 20 Cream

When applied topically, Clotrimazole is well tolerated. With external application, systemic effects are not observed. Local irritation or burning sensation may occur in very few cases but these symptoms are not considered harmful.

Pregnancy & Lactation

It is recommended that Clotrimazole should be used in pregnancy only when considered necessary by the physician.
