Psilo-balsam is a topical medication used to relieve itching and irritation associated with skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and insect bites. It contains two active ingredients: dimetinden and dexpanthenol.
Dimetinden is an antihistamine that works by blocking the effects of histamine, a chemical released by the body in response to allergens that can cause itching and inflammation. Dexpanthenol is a type of vitamin B5 that helps to moisturize and soothe the skin, promoting healing.
Psilo-balsam is applied topically to the affected area of the skin, and the recommended dosage and frequency of use will depend on the age and condition of the patient, as well as the severity of the symptoms. It is important to follow the instructions provided by a healthcare professional or on the packaging.
Psilo-balsam may cause side effects such as skin irritation, redness, or rash. If any of these symptoms persist or worsen, medical attention should be sought.
Psilo-balsam should not be used on open wounds or on areas of skin affected by viral or fungal infections. It should also be avoided in patients with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications.
