About TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM

TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM belongs to a class of drugs called 'immunosuppressants' used to treat moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (eczema). 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.

TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM contains 'Tacrolimus' that works by suppressing the over-reaction of immune cells in the skin to a stimulus. Thus, it reduces allergic reactions and inflammation (redness and swelling). 

Use TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM as prescribed. You are advised to use TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM for as long as your doctor has recommended it for you based on your medical condition. Some people may experience itching, burning sensation, redness, pain or skin tingling. Most of these side effects of TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

Please tell your doctor if you are allergic to Tacrolimus or other medicines. If you are pregnant or a breastfeeding mother, it is advised to consult a doctor before using TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM. Avoid alcohol consumption with TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM as it may cause flushing (sudden reddening of face or skin that makes you feel warm and hot). Do not cover or wrap the treated area with a bandage or dressing.  Avoid smoking or going near naked flames as the fabric (bedding, clothing, dressings) in contact with TBIS 0.3% OINTMENT 10GM catches fire and burns easily.
