What Resolve Plus is used for
Resolve Plus 1.0 is used on the skin to treat inflamed skin conditions such as:
- seborrhoeic dermatitis;
- thrush infected napkin rash;
- inflamed fungal infections where bacterial infection may be present.
- fungal infected eczema/dermatitis
Resolve Plus is a broad-spectrum anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory cream. Miconazole nitrate acts against fungal organisms to help treat infections, while hydrocortisone reduces the irritation and redness of inflamed skin.
For conditions without inflammation use an anti-fungal agent without hydrocortisone, such as Resolve Tinea.

- you have cuts or abrasions at or near the place of treatment.
The chance of unwanted effects may be increased.

How to use Resolve Plus
Follow all directions given to you by your doctor and pharmacist carefully. They may differ from the information contained in this leaflet.
If you do not understand the instructions in this leaflet, ask your doctor or pharmacist for help.
How much to use
Resolve Plus is for external use only.
How to use it
Gently rub into the infected skin and surrounding area 2 times daily. Once the inflammation has subsided continue treatment with an anti-fungal agent without hydrocortisone, such as Resolve Cream until symptoms disappear. Continue treatment for 14 days after symptoms disappear. Regular application is essential for successful treatment.
If you use it less often than you should, it may not work as well and your skin problem may not improve. Using it more often than you should may not improve your skin problem any faster and may cause or increase side effects.
How long to use it
You should check with your doctor if you need to use Resolve Plus for more than 7 days.
If you use Resolve Plus for a long time without medical supervision, the chance of side effects increases.
If you forget to use it
If you forget to use Resolve Plus, use it as soon as you remember, and then go back to using it as you would normally. Do not try to make up for the amount you missed by using more than you would normally use.
If you swallow it
Immediately telephone your doctor or Poisons Information Centre if you think that you or anyone else may have swallowed RESOLVE PLUS. Poisons Information Centre: 13 11 26 (Australia), 03 474 7000 (New Zealand)
While you are using Resolve Plus
Things you must do
Tell all doctors and pharmacists who are treating you that you are using Resolve Plus.
If you feel that Resolve Plus is not helping your condition, tell your doctor or pharmacist.
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if, for any reason, you have not used Resolve Plus exactly as prescribed. Otherwise, your doctor or pharmacist may think that it was not effective and change your treatment unnecessarily.
If you become pregnant while using Resolve Plus, tell your doctor or pharmacist.
Things you must not do
Do not use in or near the eyes.
Do not use for acne.
Do not give Resolve Plus to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as yours.
Do not use Resolve Plus to treat other complaints unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you to.
Things to be careful of
Do not use Resolve Plus under dressings or on large areas of skin unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you to. If you use large amounts for a long time, the chance of absorption through the skin and the chance of side effects increases.
Check with your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible if you have any problems while using Resolve Plus, even if you do not think the problems are connected with the medicine or are not listed in this leaflet. Like other medicines, Resolve Plus can cause some side effects. If they occur, most are likely to be minor and temporary. However, some may be serious and need medical attention.
After the application of Resolve Plus a slight stinging sensation may occasionally be noticed. This transient symptom is most likely to disappear after several applications.
Other side effects include:
- thinning of the skin
Ask your doctor or pharmacist to answer any questions you may have.
This is not a complete list of all possible side effects.
After using Resolve Plus
Keep Resolve Plus in a cool dry place where the temperature stays below 25 °C. Do not store Resolve Plus in the car or on window sills. Heat can destroy some medicines.
Keep Resolve Plus where young children cannot reach it. A locked cupboard at least one-and-a-half metres above the ground is a good place to store medicines.
If your doctor tells you to stop using Resolve Plus or it has passed its expiry date, ask your pharmacist what to do with any that is left over.
