Halox ES Ointment
Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd
Halox ES Ointment belongs to the class of ‘dermatological agents’ primarily used in the treatment of skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis. Eczema is a condition in which skin becomes red, itchy, and inflamed due to external agents such as soaps, dyes, or other irritants. Psoriasis is an autoimmune (immune system attacks healthy cells) skin disorder in which the skin becomes scaly, swelled up, and itchy.
Halox ES Ointment is a combination of two medicines: Halobetasol and Salicylic acid. Halobetasol belongs to the class of corticosteroids and it has anti-inflammatory, immunosuppressive, and antiproliferative (inhibit cell growth) properties. It blocks the production of prostaglandins (chemical messengers) that cause inflammatory symptoms such as red, swollen, and itchy rashes. Salicylic acid enhances the activity of halobetasol. It is a keratolytic medicine that breaks down the clumps of keratin (protein present on the skin), removes dead skin cells, and softens the skin. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and topical antibacterial agent.
You should use this medicine as prescribed by your doctor. Halox ES Ointment may cause side effects such as itching, dryness, irritation, and burning sensation at the application site, stretch marks, headache, and cold symptoms such as stuffy nose or sneezing. These side effects usually do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if you notice any other symptoms or the side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.
