Pimafucort general information

What is Pimafucort used for?

Pimafucort Ointment is used for the short-term treatment of superficial skin conditions (dermatoses), that have become or are at risk of becoming infected with a bacterial or fungal infection.  These skin conditions include dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), seborrhoeic dermatitis (caused by over active sebaceous glands), eczema also called atopic dermatitis as there is a predisposition due to an inherited atopic tendency, lichen simplex a form of dermatitis made worse by constant itching and scratching.  Also, psoriasis, autoimmune skin condition characterised by a chronic scaly rash.  Pimafucort Ointment helps relieve symptoms like itching, redness, dryness, crusting, scaling and discomfort common to many skin conditions, particularly where there is inflammation and where there is also the added complication of a bacterial and/or fungal (usually candida) infection.

How does Pimafucort work?

Pimafucort Ointment contains a combination of the corticosteroid hydrocortisone, the antibiotic neomycin, and the antifungal natamycin, that work together to treat inflammatory and infected skin conditions. Hydrocortisone in Pimafucort Ointment is a potent anti-inflammatory with anti-pruritic properties (anti-itching) and works by blocking the action of phospholipase A2, the first enzyme involved in the synthesis of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, which are hormone-like substances involved in the inflammatory process; also cyclooxygenase (COX 1 and COX 2), the enzymes specifically involved in prostaglandin production.  Blocking the production of inflammatory chemicals prevents the swelling and redness characteristic of inflammation and the itching and rash formation that can happen as a result of inflammation.  Hydrocortisone in Pimafucort Ointment also causes vasoconstriction (blood vessels contract), which constricts blood vessels that have become dilated (widened) and leaky, allowing other inflammatory cells into the skin to escalate the inflammatory response.  Neomycin in Pimafucort Ointment is a broad-spectrum antibiotic that is commonly used in creams and ointments and is effective against a wide range of bacteria that cause skin infections. Neomycin in Pimafucort Ointment works by blocking the synthesis of essential proteins needed for the bacteria to survive and replicate, which kills the bacteria and prevents spread of infection.  Natamycin in Pimafucort Ointment is an antifungal that is particularly active against yeast infections caused by the yeast candida.  It works by binding to ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell membrane that is not found in animal cells.  Natamycin in Pimafucort Ointment weakens the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out, which kills the fungus.  Pimafucort Ointment helps relieve symptoms of inflammation and prevents spread of bacterial and fungal infections of the skin. 

What does Pimafucort contain?

Pimafucort Ointment contains a combination of three active ingredients: the corticosteroid hydrocortisone (10mg/g), the antibiotic neomycin (3.5mg/g), and the antifungal natamycin (10mg/g), that work together to treat inflammatory and infected skin conditions.  It also contains polyethylene oleogel (liquid paraffin with 5% w/w polyethylene).

Treating infected skin conditions with Pimafucort

Pimafucort Ointment contains a combination of the corticosteroid hydrocortisone, the antibiotic neomycin, and the antifungal natamycin, that are used to treat superficial skin conditions, that have become or are at risk of becoming infected with a bacterial or fungal infection. These skin conditions include dermatitis, eczema, seborrhoeic dermatitis, lichen simplex (a form of dermatitis) and psoriasis, an autoimmune skin condition characterised by a chronic scaly rash.  Hydrocortisone in Pimafucort Ointment is a potent anti-inflammatory with anti-pruritic properties (anti-itching) and works by blocking the production of inflammatory mediators like prostaglandins that cause swelling and redness characteristic of inflammation and the itching and rash formation that can happen as a result of inflammation.  Hydrocortisone in Pimafucort Ointment also causes leaky blood vessels to constrict, preventing leakage of inflammatory cells at the site of inflammation.  Neomycin in Pimafucort Ointment is a broad-spectrum antibiotic effective against a wide range of bacteria that cause skin infections and works by blocking the synthesis of essential proteins needed for the bacteria to survive and replicate, which kills the bacteria and prevents spread of infection.  Natamycin in Pimafucort Ointment is an antifungal that works by binding to ergosterol, an important component of the fungal cell membrane which weakens the fungal cell membrane, causing the cell contents to leak out, which kills the fungus.  Pimafucort Ointment helps relieve symptoms of inflammation and prevents spread of bacterial and fungal infections of the skin.
