Cutistad Spray – Clotrimazole

Cutistad Spray is Indicated for: Fungal infections of the skin due to dermatophytes, yeasts (e.g. Candida species), moulds and other fungal organisms such as Malassezia furfur, for instance manifesting as fungal infections of the feet, skin and skinfolds; superficial Candida infections; tinea versicolor.

Patients with known hypersensitivity to macrogol or 2-propanol may use a preparation that does not contain the offending substance (say, clotrimazole cream instead of the spray formulation).

Dosage and administration, duration of therapy

The instructions given below apply unless your doctor has prescribed cutistad spray otherwise for you. Please comply with these instructions for effective and safe cutistad spray therapy.

How often should you use cutistad spray?

Use cutistad spray 2-3 times daily.

How should you use cutistad spray?

Spray the solution onto affected skin areas.

For how long should you use cutistad spray?

Regular and sufficiently long treatment is crucial to successful therapy. The duration of therapy varies as a function of the extent and site of the affected skin areas. To ensure a complete healing, treatment should not be stopped once the acute inflammatory signs and subjective symptoms have cleared up.

Treatment should rather be continued for at least 4 weeks. Tinea versicolor typically heals within 1-3 weeks. To prevent recurrence, treatment of tinea pedis should be continued for about 2 weeks beyond resolution of all signs and symptoms despite rapid subjective improvement. Be sure to thoroughly dry your feet after washing.

Violations of dosage regimen

What should you do if you take less than prescribed dose of cutistad spray or miss a dose?

If you miss a single dose, do not use a double dose of cutistad spray the following day but rather continue therapy as directed.

What should you bear in mind if you interrupt or stop cutistad spray therapy early?

Discuss with your doctor or pharmacist because you may lose the desired effect in either case.

Composition

  • Pharmacologically active ingredient: 1 ml solution contains 0.01 g clotrimazole.
  • Other ingredients: Macrogol 300, oleyloleate, 2-propanol.

What should you be aware of if you are pregnant or breastfeeding?

Products containing clotrimazole should not be used in early pregnancy over large areas of the body (larger than 30% of total body surface area) because an epidemiological study in pregnant women produced evidence to suggest that clotrimazole applied to the vagina in the first three months of pregnancy may increase the miscarriage rate.

To avoid direct contact of the nursing infant with clotrimazole, nursing mothers should not apply cutistad spray to their breasts.

What should be borne in mind in children and elderly people?

No specific dose adjustments are necessary.

Precautions for use and warnings What precautions must be borne in mind?

Cutistad spray is intended for external use only. Do not spray onto mucous membranes or into the eyes. Cutistad spray is not suitable for the treatment of fungal infections of the genitals.

Drug interaction

What other medicines interfere with the effect of cutistad spray or are themselves affected by cutistad spray?

The active ingredient of cutistad spray, clotrimazole, reduces the efficacy of amphotericin and other polyene antibiotics such as nystatin and natamycin.

Side Effects

What Adverse Reactions Could You Experience While Using Cutistad Spray?

Cutistad spray may occasionally cause skin reactions (transient redness, burning or stinging) and may very rarely produce allergic reactions in patients hypersensitive to macrogol or 2-propanol. Should you experience any adverse effects not described in this leaflet, be sure to inform your doctor or pharmacist.
