Tecum 0.1% Lotion is used to treat eczema (atopic dermatitis). It works by suppressing the activity of certain immune cells that cause inflammation (redness and swelling) of the skin. This relieves itching and improves rashes in atopic dermatitis.
Tecum 0.1% Lotion is used for external use. It should be used 2-4 times a day on the affected area or use it as suggested by the doctor. It should be applied slowly and evenly to the skin until it is rubbed in. You should not use it too often and you should not cover the treated area with a bandage or plaster. You must inform your doctor if there’s no improvement even after two weeks of treatment or if the skin gets worse.
It is a safe medicine with few side effects, but you may get an application site reaction like burning, irritation, itching, and redness. This medicine is not normally recommended during pregnancy or while breastfeeding unless it is clearly needed.
BENEFITS OF TECUM LOTION
In Prevention of organ rejection in transplant patients
Tecum 0.1% Lotion belongs to a group of medicines known as immunosuppressants. Organ rejection happens when your immune system treats the new organ as an invader and attacks it. This medicine weakens your immune response (which usually fights infection) and reduces the chance of your body attacking the transplanted organ. It is used in combination with other medicines to make it much more likely that your transplant operation will be successful. You should continue taking the medicine and should not stop it until your doctor says so.
