Dosage and AdministrationFrequency of administration is dependent on the severity of the condition. For mild inflammations, application may range from once daily to once a week; for severe conditions Animax Cream may be applied as often as 2 to 3 times daily, if necessary. Frequency of treatment may be decreased as improvement occurs.
Clean affected areas, removing any encrusted discharge or exudate. Apply Animax Cream (Nystatin-Neomycin Sulfate-Thiostrepton-Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP) sparingly in a thin film.
PrecautionsAnimax Cream (Nystatin-Neomycin Sulfate-Thiostrepton-Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP) is not intended for the treatment of deep abscesses or deep-seated infections such as inflammation of the lymphatic vessels. Parenteral antibiotic therapy is indicated in these infections.
Nystatin-Neomycin Sulfate-Thiostrepton-Triamcinolone Acetonide Cream USP has been extremely well tolerated. The occurrence of systemic reactions is rarely a problem with topical administration.
Sensitivity to neomycin may occur. If redness, irritation or swelling persists or increases, discontinue use. Do not use if pus is present since the drug may allow the infection to spread.
Avoid ingestion. Oral or parental use of corticosteroids, depending on dose, duration and specific steroid, may result in inhibition of endogenous steroid production following drug withdrawal.
