Advantan Ointment 15g

Advantan is an anti-inflammatory medicine (a corticosteroid) which is intended to be used on the skin. Advantan reduces the inflammation and allergic reaction of the skin. Therefore it lessens redness (erythema), fluid build-up (oedema) and fluid oozing from the inflamed skin. It also relieves the itchiness, burning sensation or pain you may feel. Advantan is used for the treatment of skin conditions which are sensitive to corticosteroids.
How to use
If not prescribed otherwise by your doctor, the general dosage is as follows: •apply Advantan thinly once per day to the affected areas of skin; •always keep the treatment period as short as possible. The duration of use should not exceed 12 weeks in adults and 4 weeks in children. •if your skin dries out excessively using Advantan Cream, ask your doctor about switching to one of the formulations with a higher fat content (Advantan Ointment or Advantan Fatty Ointment). •if you have an impression that the effect of Advantan is too strong or too weak, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not use Advantan: •if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to the active substance methylprednisolone aceponate (MPA) or to any of the other ingredients of Advantan. •if pre-existing eczema or rash has become infected.
