Conovate-N indications

For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains.

Conovate-N contraindications



•Acne vulgaris.

•Perioral dermatitis.

•Perianal and genital pruritus.

•Primary cutaneous viral infections (e.g. herpes simplex, chickenpox).

•Hypersensitivity to any component of the preparation.

•Use is not indicated in treatment of primary infected skin lesions caused by infection with fungi or bacteria; primary or secondary infections due to yeast; or secondary infections due to Pseudomonas or Proteus species.

•Dermatoses in children under 2 years of age, including dermatitis and napkin eruptions. A possibility of increased absorption exists in very young children, thus Conovate-N is not recommended for use in neonates and infants (up to 2 years). In neonates and infants, absorption by immature skin may be enhanced, and renal function may be immature.

•Preparations containing Neomycin (Conovate-N) should not be used for the treatment of otitis externa when the ear-drum is perforated, because of the risk of ototoxicity.

•Due to the known ototoxic and nephrotoxic potential of Neomycin (Conovate-N) sulphate, the use of Conovate-N in large quantities or on large areas for prolonged periods of time is not recommended in circumstances where significant systemic absorption may occur.
