Should hormone -containing ointment be used? how to use?


What hormone is said, what hormone is

The hormone that allows patients to discuss the color degeneration generally refers to the glycogenic hormone drugs, which can not only regulate the biological synthesis and metabolic effects of sugar, fat, and protein, but also inhibit immune response, anti -inflammatory, anti -toxic, and shock.

Corticosteroids such as dermatitis and eczema are used to treat common dermatitis, eczema and other skin diseases. Because corticosteroid hormone preparations are strong, medium and weak, pay attention to different medication.

There are many hormone ointment, how to use it

According to the intensity of the effect, external glucocorticoids can generally be divided into four levels: ultra -powerful 、 strong 、 medium and weak effects. According to the characteristics of the customer’s condition, age, and onset parts, pharmacies must also focus on recommending medicines for customers.

Medium -weight eczema dermatitis: medium strong ointment.

Eczema dermatitis in the head and facial and vulva: medium and weak effect.

Eczema dermatitis: medium powerful ointment.

Hand and foot eczema dermatitis: powerful ointment。

Adult: medium strong ointment.

Children, elderly: medium weak effect ointment.

Writing from the outer packaging, it is likely to contain hormones

Due to the lack of understanding of hormones, it is often “discussed in hormone color changes”, and it is believed that external hormones will have various side effects or dependence.

However, hormone ointment is a common topical drug for dermatology, which plays an irreplaceable role in many dermatological treatment. If the pharmacies can master the method of quickly identifying the ointment, explain to customers that they have more effort.

1. “Song” or “Need” should pay attention


Pharmaceuticals can observe the outer packaging first, whether there is a special word “loose” or “Need”. The common name of most hormone drugs is almost the words “loose” or “Need”.

2. Polycine chloride Becosso (Energy Cream)

As a special case, although the name of propionate Bolita does not appear “loose” or “Need”, it belongs to super -efficient hormone drugs.

3. Pay attention to observation ingredients

Some compound preparations, although the name does not appear special words, the ingredients contain hormones. For example, compound ketoconazole ointment, the ingredient contains propionate peptoselopers, so it is also a hormone ointment.

Hormone ointment can be used, but pay attention to these

All in all, glucocorticoid ointment is the first choice for treating dermatitis eczema skin diseases, which can quickly relieve symptoms. As long as the hormone ointment is used normally, the amount of blood entering the whole body is small and relatively safer.

1. Hormonal ointment is not a versatile medicine for skin disease

Bacterial infections (such as pus, folliculitis, cymbal), viral infections (such as flat warts, chickenpox, shingles), fungal infections (such as ringworm, ringworm) and other skin diseases can not be treated with hormone.

2. The elderly and children should use hormone ointment with caution

Elderly people often accompany various chronic basic diseases, such as hypertension, diabetes, gastric duodenal ulcers, heart failure, epilepsy and mental illness, and should not use hormone ointment too much.

The body surface area of ​​infants and young children is relatively large, and the sensitivity to hormones is greater than adults. Therefore, infants and young children are best to use weak or hormones or hormone -free ointments.

3. The more the hormone ointment is not applied, the better

Local topical hormones need to pay attention to usage and dosage. Children’s continuous use of hormone ointment should not exceed 4 weeks, and adults should not exceed 8 weeks. If there is an exudate or a large skin lesion area, hormone ointment cannot be used.

Patients must be reminded that hormonal ointment must be used reasonably and cannot be used for the skin for a long time. Generally, after damage is reduced, it should be gradually reduced or stopped. Otherwise, the skin will produce adverse reactions such as the skin’s local production, thinning atrophy, capillary dilatation, pigmentation, and hair hyperplasia.
