Topical treatment of superficial wounds with little exudate and the presence of superinfection caused by pathogenic microorganisms sensitive to thyrotricin, such as lacerations, scratches, abrasions.
Composition and form of release
The main active ingredient is tyrothricin.
It is produced in the form of a medicinal gel, in tubes of 5 grams each, while 1 gram of the drug contains 1 mg of tyrothricin.
This drug belongs to the group of antibacterial agents used topically.
The main active ingredient is the antibiotic tyrothricin. Refers to compounds of polypeptides of both cyclic and linear properties. These peptides have high antibacterial activity. Tyrothricin in the process of transformation becomes a spore-forming endotoxin, which contains 70-80% tyrocidins and 20-30% gramicidins. Affects both gram-positive (hemophilic bacteria, nesseria meningitus, corynebacteria, diplococci, etc.) and gram-negative, as well as some mycobacteria, including the genus “Candida”. The bactericidal mechanism of action is associated with the ability of tyrothricin to destroy the osmotic barriers of cell membranes in pathological bacteria. It also causes the bacteria cells to lose potassium, which also shortens their lifespan.
When applied topically, the drug helps to accelerate wound healing, accelerating their epithelialization.
The specified medical agent is used for local treatment of external wounds, violations of the integrity of the skin, other tissues, characterized by a slight release of exudate and the presence of superinfection, which are caused by pathogenic microorganisms sensitive to tyrothricin.
In particular, it accelerates the healing of lacerations, scratches, abrasions.
The drug in question is contraindicated for use in cases where the patient has severe hypersensitivity (allergy) to the main or to one of the auxiliary components.
It should not be used intranasally (applied to the mucous membrane of the nose, its wings), as this can cause a violation of the sense of smell.
Application of the drug to the area around the eyes should be done with great care, because this can cause burning and itching of the eyes.
