About Talimus Ointment 5 gm

Talimus Ointment 5 gm belongs to a class of drugs called 'immunosuppressants' used to treat moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) and prevent organ rejection after a transplant. Atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema is a common skin condition associated with inflamed and itchy skin patches. The symptoms include itchy, dry, flaky, swollen, rough and irritated skin. Organ rejection occurs when a patient’s immune system recognizes the donor organ as foreign and tries to eliminate it. 

Talimus Ointment 5 gm contains 'Tacrolimus' that works by suppressing the over-reaction of immune cells in the skin to a stimulus. Thereby, reduces allergic reaction and inflammation (redness and swelling). Also, Talimus Ointment 5 gm suppresses T and B lymphocytes (cells in the immune system) that normally attacks foreign invaders and defend the body against foreign cells and infection. Thereby prevents organ rejection in transplanted patients and helps the body in accepting the new organ.
