Overview

Introduction

Nocin L Ointment is a combination medicine used in the treatment of bacterial skin infections. It prevents the growth of microorganisms that cause the infection. It also relieves the pain, irritation, and itchiness of the skin.

Nocin L Ointment is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin with clean and dry hands. Wash your hands before and after applying the medicine. If it gets into your eyes, nose, mouth, or vagina rinse with water. It may take several days to weeks for your symptoms to improve, but you should keep using this medicine regularly. The course of the treatment should be completed to ensure better efficacy of the medicine. If your condition does not improve or gets worse, you should talk to your doctor.

This is usually a safe medicine, however, it may cause burning, irritation, itching, and redness at the application site. These side effects are usually mild and self-limiting. Serious side effects are rare. You must consult the doctor if you experience any allergic reaction (rashes, itching, swelling, shortness of breath, etc.).

Before taking this medicine, it is important to tell your doctor if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines for the same disease or other diseases. Pregnant and breastfeeding women should use this medicine with proper consultation and caution. If you are a known allergic to the medicine, you must refrain from using this medicine. You should consult the doctor about prescribing an alternative medicine for your condition. During the course of the treatment, do not touch or scratch the infected skin areas as this may worsen or spread the infection.

How Nocin L Ointment works

Nocin L Ointment is a combination of four medicines: Bacitracin, Lidocaine/Lignocaine, Neomycin, and Polymyxin B. Bacitracin works by preventing the formation of the bacterial protective covering which is essential for the survival of bacteria in the human body. Lidocaine/Lignocaine is a local anesthetic which works by blocking pain signals from the nerves to brain thereby decreasing the sensation of pain and irritation in the skin. Neomycin stops bacterial growth by preventing the synthesis of essential proteins required by bacteria to carry out vital functions. Polymyxin B kills bacteria by destroying the bacterial cell membrane.
