The action of Trofodermin accelerates the healing process, so it is also usually indicated in cases of wounds with delayed healing.
How it works
Trofodermin is a healing cream that acts by the association of the anabolic action of Clostebol, which is a steroid hormone that stimulates the formation of new cells, with the action of Neomycin, which is an antibiotic that controls and prevents infection by bacteria.
In this way, healing is facilitated, as the skin is stimulated to form, as well as outbreaks of infection that delay the healing of wounds are eliminated.
How to use
To use Trofodermin cream, the following guidelines should be followed:
- Dermatological cream : apply a thin layer of cream on the affected area, being clean and dry, 1 to 2 times a day, as directed by a doctor;
- Vaginal cream: Apply the cream inside the vagina, carefully, introducing the applicator loaded with cream, as deep as possible, 1-2 times a day, as directed by the gynecologist. To fill the applicator, fit it into the tube, which must be gently tightened until the plunger reaches the top. The lying position with the folded legs can facilitate the application.
In order for the treatment to be effective, it is important to follow the times and the number of days recommended by the doctor. If you miss a dose, you should do it as soon as you remember, but if it is near the time of the next dose, it is recommended to disregard the missed dose and perform the next dose.
