Luco-Sense Lotion is an antifungal medicine used to treat fungal infections of the skin such as athlete’s foot, Dhobie Itch, thrush, ringworm, and dry, flaky skin. It works by killing the fungi that cause these infections.
Luco-Sense Lotion should be used in the dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it more often or in higher quantities than prescribed as this will not clear your condition faster and may only increase the side effects. Skin infections will usually get better after 2 to 4 weeks of use. Let your doctor know if your condition does not improve. The effect of the medicine can be increased by keeping the affected area clean and dry, and washing hands before and after use. If you have athlete’s foot, wash your socks or tights thoroughly and change your shoes daily if possible.
The most common side effects of this medicine include a burning sensation, irritation, itching, and redness at the site of application. It may also cause dryness, peeling, or blistering of the skin. These are not usually serious and resolve with time. Call your doctor if these persist or bother you. Seek emergency help if you notice signs of an allergic reaction such as a rash, swelling of the lips, throat, or face, swallowing or breathing problems, and nausea. Avoid direct contact with your eyes. In case of accidental contact, wash your eyes with water and seek immediate medical attention.
It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way this medicine works, but talk to your doctor before using it if you have recently used another medicine that contains a steroid or had an allergic reaction to another antifungal medicine. Ask your doctor before using this medicine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
