SULFATE-THIOSTREPTON-TRIAMCINOLONE ACETONIDE OINTMENT
Dermalone Ointment - Vedco is used in the treatment of acute and chronic otitis of varied etiologies, in interdigital cysts in cats and dogs, and in anal gland infections in dogs. The preparation is
also indicated in the management of dermatologic disorders characterized by
inflammation and dry or exudative dermatitis, particularly those caused,
complicated, or threatened by bacterial or candidal (Candida albicans)
infections. It is also of value of eczematous dermatitis, contact dermatitis,
and seborrheic dermatitis; and as an adjunct in the treatment of dermatitis due
to parasitic infestation.Directions:
Frequency of administration is dependent on the
severity of the condition. For mild inflammations, application may range from
once daily to once a week; for severe conditions Dermalone Ointment may be
applied as often as two to three times daily, if necessary. Frequency of
treatment may be decreased as improvement occurs. Wear gloves during the
administration of the ointment or wash hands immediately after application.
Otitis: Clean ear canal of impacted cerumen. Inspect canal and remove any
foreign bodies such as grass awns, ticks, etc. Instill three to five drops of
Dermalone Ointment. Preliminary use of a local anesthetic such as Proparacaine
Hydrochloride Ophthalmic Solution may be advisable.
- Infected anal glands,
cystic areas, etc; Drain the gland or cyst and then fill with Dermalone
- Other dermatologic disorders: Clean the affected areas,
removing any encrusted discharge of exudate. Apply Dermalone Ointment (Nystatin-Neomycin
Sulfate-Thiostrepton-Triamcinolone Acetonide Ointment) sparingly in a thin film.
Dermalone Ointment is not intended for the treatment of deep abscesses or
deep-seated infections such as inflammation of the lymphatic vessels. Parenteral
antibiotic therapy is indicated in these infections.
Dermalone Ointment has been extremely well
tolerated. Cutaneous reactions attributable to its use have been rare. The
occurrence of systemic reactions is rarely a problem with topical
administration. There is some evidence that corticosteroids can be absorbed
after topical application and cause systemic effects. Therefore, an animal
receiving Dermalone Ointment therapy should be observed closely for signs such
as polydipsia, polyuria, and increased body weight gain. Dermalone Ointment is
not generally recommended for the treatment of deep or puncture wounds or
serious burns. Sensitivity to neomycin may occur. If redness, irritation or
swelling persists or increases, discontinue use. Do not use if pus is present
since the drug may allow the infection to spread. Avoid ingestion. Oral or
parenteral use of corticosteroids (depending on dose, duration of use, and
specific steroid) may result in the inhibition of endogenous steroid production
following drug withdrawal.
instilling any medication into the ear, examine the external ear canal
thoroughly to be certain the tympanic membrane is not ruptured in order to avoid
the possibility of transmitting infection to the middle ear as well as damaging
the cochlea or vestibular apparatus from prolonged contact. If hearing or
vestibular dysfunction is noted during the course of treatment, discontinue the
use of Dermalone Ointment.
