Barmicil Compuesto Cream is used to treat dermatoses complicated by infections caused by pathogens susceptible to the drug, or with suspected infections such as:
- simple and allergic dermatitis;
- atopic dermatitis (including diffuse neurodermatitis);
- limited neurodermatitis;
- dermatomycoses (dermatophytosis, candidiasis), especially when localized in the inguinal region and large folds of the skin;
- simple chronic lichen (limited neurodermatitis).
Dosage and administration
The cream is applied locally.
A small amount of the drug is applied to the affected areas of the skin, 2 times a day. The duration of treatment is determined individually and depends on the nosological form and severity of the disease.
With dermatomycosis of the feet, the average duration of treatment is 2–4 weeks.
If clinical improvement does not occur in the near future, it is necessary to clarify the diagnosis or change the treatment regimen.
Do use Barmicil Compuesto Cream if you have any of the following conditions/diseases:
- hypersensitivity to any of the components of the drug;
- skin manifestations of syphilis;
- herpes simplex;
- skin post-vaccination reactions;
- open wounds;
- children under the age of 2 years.
Precautions: pregnancy (especially in the first trimester); children’s age (> 2 years); long-term treatment; application on large areas of the skin or in violation of the integrity of the skin; the use of occlusive dressings (especially in children).
In some cases, the cream can cause itching, burning, irritation, dry skin, folliculitis, hypertrichosis, steroid acne, hypopigmentation, allergic reactions.
When using occlusive dressings — a person can experience maceration, infection, atrophy of the skin, striae, prickly heat.
With prolonged treatment or application to a large surface, the drug can cause systemic side effects: weight gain, osteoporosis, increased blood pressure, swelling, ulceration of the gastrointestinal mucosa, exacerbation of hidden foci of infection, hyperglycemia, agitation, insomnia, dysmenorrhea.
The prolonged use of this cream in high doses can cause secondary adrenal insufficiency and symptoms of hypercorticism, including Cushing’s syndrome.
An overdose of clotrimazole with its local use does not cause any symptoms.
A single overdose of gentamicin does not cause any symptoms. Long-term treatment with high doses of gentamicin can lead to the growth of insensitive flora.
Treatment should be symptomatic. The acute symptoms of hypercorticism are usually reversible. If necessary, electrolyte imbalance is corrected. In the case of chronic corticosteroid toxicity, gradual cancellation of corticosteroids is recommended.
Clinically significant interactions are unknown.
