Pacroma ointment is a medication used to treat atopic dermatitis, a form of eczema. It works by suppressing the activity of certain immune cells that cause inflammation of the skin, thereby relieving itching and improving rashes. It is applied externally, 2-4 times a day on the affected area or as prescribed by a doctor. The ointment should be rubbed in slowly and evenly, and the treated area should not be covered with a bandage or plaster. If there is no improvement after two weeks of treatment, or if the skin worsens, a doctor should be consulted.
Pacroma ointment is considered safe with few side effects, but some people may experience application site reactions like burning, irritation, itching, and redness. It is not recommended for use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding unless absolutely necessary.
The benefits of Pacroma ointment for atopic dermatitis include improvement in the appearance of the skin, relief from itching and pain, and better sleep and concentration. It is a short-term treatment option when other treatments have failed or are not suitable, and is normally used for a maximum of 8 weeks.
