After a short period of treatment, with no appreciable results or in case of suspected fungal infection, consult your doctor.

Preclinical studies conducted on rats and rabbits did not highlight any risks for the fetus. However, since no clinical data are available in pregnant women, the use of the product is to be considered contraindicated in this situation.

No special precautions.
Interactions with other drugs
Propanol prolongs the plasma half-life of lidocaine. Cimetidine can raise the plasma levels of lidocaine.
Symptoms of overdose are characterized by neuroexcitatory manifestations (tremors, convulsions followed by depression, respiratory failure and coma) and by cardiovascular changes with hypotension and bradycardia.
