Brief Answer:
Panderm plus cream should not be used as fairness treatment

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for writing to us at healthcare magic

Panderm plus cream should not be used for fairness treatment. It contains high potency steroid Clobetasol propionate which can lead to various side effects like thinning of the skin, redness, increased hair growth and pimples.

I would recommend you to not use this cream on your face as it can be harmful.

Brief Answer:
Symptoms of steroid dependence

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome back.

These are side effects of using Panderm plus cream. On stopping the cream you get these side effects as your skin becomes dependant on the steroid.
In such cases I recommend my patients to take tablet Doxycycline 100 mg once daily at night along with metronidazole gel on the rashes twice daily.
Along with this I recommend them to apply benzoyl peroxide 2.5 percent gel on the pimples twice daily.
This treatment is continued for 6-8 weeks under supervision of a doctor.
Kindly get back to me if you have further query.

Take care, Bye.
