Protopic prescription ointment is used for short or repeated treatments for people who don’t respond well to or who may have side effects with traditional treatments. It’s approved for adults in concentrations of 0.1% and 0.03% and for children, aged 2 to 15 years, in the 0.03% concentration only. Although individual results may vary, many people see improvement after the first few weeks of treatment.
The most common side effects are stinging and burning. The worse your eczema is, the more likely you may have stinging and burning. Protopic may be associated with an increased risk of certain skin infections. When using Protopic, avoid direct sunlight, tanning salons, and phototherapy, and don’t cover the skin being treated with bandages, dressings, or wraps. Only your doctor can weigh the risks and benefits and decide if Protopic is right for you
