INTRODUCTION

TAMUS PLUS CREAM contains Tacrolimus which belongs to the group of medicines called Immunosuppressants. It is used to treat and prevent moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) when other conventional therapies fail to provide adequate results.

Atopic dermatitis is an allergic skin condition that makes your skin itchy, red, dry and irritated. It is characterized by small, raised bumps on the skin with pus accompanied by severe skin itching, redness and inflammation.

TAMUS PLUS CREAM is suitable for use both in adults and children (aged 16 years or older). Apply a thin layer of TAMUS PLUS CREAM on the affected skin areas. You may use your regular skin moisturizer and/or other skin lotions along with TAMUS PLUS CREAM, but make sure to apply them after 2 hours of applying TAMUS PLUS CREAM.

Do not use TAMUS PLUS CREAM for more than the stipulated duration recommended by your doctor. Regularly visit your doctor (once a year or as instructed) for reviewing your condition even if your condition remains under control.

Before using TAMUS PLUS CREAM inform your doctor if you have any other skin disease apart from eczema such as skin cancer, skin infections or lesions at the application site, any inherited skin barrier disease or generalised erythroderma (severe skin redness and scaling).

You must also inform your doctor if you have a weak immune system, liver problems or any autoimmune disease conditions. Consult your doctor before using TAMUS PLUS CREAM if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

While undergoing therapy with TAMUS PLUS CREAM, avoid exposing your skin towards direct sunlight or towards any artificial light sources. Wear loose-fitting protective clothes and apply sunscreen while going outdoors. Also, avoid the consumption of alcohol as it may make your skin look more flushed. Do not smoke or go near naked flames as it may increase the risk of burns.

The most common side effects of applying TAMUS PLUS CREAM are skin irritation, burning sensation, redness or warmth at the site of application. Consult your doctor if this side effect troubles you.

USES OF TAMUS PLUS CREAM

It is used in adults and in children (aged 16 years or older) to treat and prevent:

  • Moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (eczema)

HOW TAMUS PLUS CREAM WORKS

TAMUS PLUS CREAM is an immunosuppressive agent. It works by blocking the release of certain chemicals in the body (such as T-cells) that cause allergic and inflammatory reactions. When applied topically, it suppresses the immune system and prevents the abnormal immune response towards allergens. This reduces skin dryness, redness, itching and inflammation associated with auto-immune skin conditions.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Apply a small amount of TAMUS PLUS CREAM into the affected skin areas or directed by the physician. It is for topical use only. Wash your hands before and after application unless your hands are also treated.

Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration of therapy for you depending on your age, body weight and health condition. Do not stop using or overuse TAMUS PLUS CREAM without consulting your doctor.

Avoid contact of TAMUS PLUS CREAM with your eyes, mouth, ears, nose or with open wounds. Do not cover the application site with bandages, dressings or clothes.
