About ELIDEL 1% CREAM 10GM

ELIDEL 1% CREAM 10GM belongs to a class of dermatological preparation called 'immunosuppressants' primarily used to prevent allergies including swelling, itching redness, heat and pain caused due to certain skin problems such as dermatitis (itchy, swelling of the skin) and eczema (itchy, cracked, swollen or rough skin). Eczema is a condition in which skin patches become inflamed, itchy, cracked and rough. Dermatitis is a skin condition that causes itchy, dry skin or a rash on swollen, reddened skin. 

ELIDEL 1% CREAM 10GM contains Pimecrolimus works by stopping the immune system from producing chemical substances that may cause eczema. When the skin reacts to any type of allergens, such chemicals substances are released normally.
