Suggest treatment for side effects of Condyline
Stop using condilyn, apply steroid antibiotic combination
Thanks for being at healthcaremagic
I can understand your concern. You seem to have developed an irritant reaction to condyline cream as it has high potential for causing irritation.
I hope you have stopped using it. In such cases I recommend my patients patients to wash the affected area with water only and don't use soap. Along with this I suggest them to apply a steroid antibiotic combination like mometasone fusidic acid combination on the traumatised area. You may also take pain killer like ibuprofen or diclofenac tablet. It will relieve your burning sensation.
I don't know whether these medicines will be available over the counter in your country.
I hope to have answered your query.
I would be happy to clarify any further doubts.
Wish you speedy recovery.
What percentage re steroid cream? I used 5% and it works short term but it comes back. What will the antibacterial do? Thanks
Use a high potency steroid, take short course of oral steroids
You mean to say that the perineal area and buttocks are swollen? In that case you may need a short course of oral steroids as they are anti inflammatory and will suppress your symptoms. These are prescription medicines and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
I think you have used cortisone cream which is a very mild steroid. You need to apply higher potency steroid like mometasone or clobetasol propionate. Mometasone is available as 0.1 percent cream while clobetasol propionate is available as 0.05 percent.
You had mentioned that the area is traumatised, that's why I recommended an antibiotic as well to avoid secondary bacterial infection. But if there is no break in the skin and no rash you can omit the antibiotic and apply only steroid cream.
Yes it is irritant contact dermatitis
Yes it is irritant contact dermatitis according to your history. In irritant contact dermatitis there is more of pain and burning and less of itching. Swelling can also be a manifestation of irritant reaction.
It's been a month. How long does it take to go away? Thanks
I don't have problems standing or lying down ....just sitting and I'm worried that it won't heal if I'm sitting all the time.
Pain will take few more days to subside, no need to increase dose
I think the pain will take few more days to subside as you have been taking the medicine for only 4 days. As far as dosage is concerned its fine and no need to increase it further.
Has the pain decreased after starting prednisolone or the intensity of pain still the same? Hopefully pain will decrease till thursday and we can think of continuing with same dose or decreasing it depending on your condition.
Yes you can take off from work if sitting for too long aggravates your pain. Sitting for too long definitely puts pressure on the buttocks and hence you feel more pain.
Need to assess your condition on Thursday
This is what I am saying that we need to assess your condition on thursday so that further course of action can be decided depending on your status.
