This combination of clioquinol and hydrocortisone is prescribed to address several skin conditions, including eczema and fungal skin infections like ringworm, athlete’s foot, and jock itch. Clioquinol, also referred to as iodochlorhydroxyquin, acts as an antibiotic by inhibiting the growth of fungus and bacteria. Hydrocortisone, a mild corticosteroid, mitigates swelling, redness, and itching in the affected skin.

Uses and Dosage

Apply this medication exclusively to the skin. Ensure the area to be treated is clean and completely dry. Follow your doctor’s instructions and gently rub a thin layer of the medication onto the affected area, typically 3 to 4 times daily.

After application, wash your hands unless you’re treating the hands themselves. Avoid wrapping, covering, or bandaging the treated area unless directed by your doctor.

Do not apply the medication to the eyes, nose, mouth, or inside the vagina. If accidental contact occurs in these areas, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water.

Adhere strictly to the prescribed frequency and duration of application. Using the medication more frequently or for longer than prescribed may heighten the risk of side effects.

Consistently apply this medication to derive maximum benefit. Establish a routine by using it at the same times each day.

Continue using this medication until you’ve completed the full prescribed amount, even if symptoms subside within a few days. Discontinuing the medication prematurely could lead to a recurrence of the infection.

Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

Can I use Vioform Hydrocortisone Cream on my face?
