Full Prescribing Info
Contents
Fluocinolone acetonide, gentamicin sulfate.
Description
Each gram contains: Fluocinolone Acetonide 0.25 mg; Gentamicin Sulfate equivalent to 1 mg of Gentamicin in a greaseless washable base.
Gentasolon topical cream contains Fluocinolone Acetonide, a successful topical corticosteroid, and Gentamicin Sulfate, a wide spectrum antibiotic. Fluocinolone Acetonide is a synthetic corticosteroid, well known for its remarkable success rate in the treatment of a wide range of dermatoses. Gentamicin is a broad spectrum antibiotic, which provides highly effective topical treatment in primary and secondary bacterial infections of the skin caused by a wide variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria.
Gentasolon thus combines an outstandingly effective corticosteroid with a highly potent broad spectrum antibiotic. Because of its anti-inflammatory, anti allergic, antipruritic and antibacterial properties, Gentasolon is of particular value in those dermatoses complicated by local infection or when the possibility of such infection is suspected.
