Can I use Corticom for treating discolored patches on my skin?

Dr. Roshni Poonja MBBS , General Physician, Internal Medicine

Yes, Corticom can be used for the treatment of brown patches on the skin or melasma, however, it is not used alone. It is always used in combination with hydroquinone, isotretinoin and sometimes glycolic acid. Melasma is a common skin condition. It is usually manifested as brown to gray-brown patches on the forehead, bridge of the nose, cheeks, upper lip, and chin. It can also invade forearms and neck. Alongside topical treatment, protection from Sun is also suggested as a treatment.

Can I apply Corticom for treating ringworm?

Dr. Abhijit MBBS , General Physician

No, Corticom is not recommended to be used for ringworm. Ringworm is a fungal infection and it is not caused by any worm. It presents as a silver or red colored patch which may be swollen, itchy, scaly or dry. Ringworm can manifest in any part of the body, including groin (jock itch) and scalp (tenia capitis). The rash is usually ring-shaped on places other than face, neck or scalp. At times, the rash starts spreading. It should be treated using antifungal creams containing ingredients like clotrimazole, miconazole, etc.

Diaper rash appears as an inflamed skin portion (also known as dermatitis) on the bottoms of a baby. It develops because of wet and infrequently changed diapers, chafing and also because of the skin sensitivity. It can be cured by using good quality diapers, air drying, frequent changing of the diapers and using an ointment containing ingredients like zinc oxide, calendula, etc.
