Silverine 1% Cream


Overview

Introduction

Silverine 1% Cream is an antibiotic medicine that helps your body fight infections caused by bacteria. It is used to prevent and treat infections of burn wounds. This medicine stops the bacteria from growing, which helps to resolve your symptoms.

Silverine 1% Cream is meant for external use only. It should be applied only to the affected area of the skin, after cleaning the wound. Use it as per the dosage and schedule prescribed by your doctor. In order to get the most benefit, apply it regularly and preferably at the same time each day. Do not use larger amounts or apply it more often or for a longer duration than directed. This will only increase the risk of side effects. Avoid any contact with your eyes, nose or mouth. Rinse it off with water if you accidentally get the medicine in these areas.

This medicine is generally safe to use with minimal side effects like minor burning or irritation may be seen after application. These are usually temporary and resolve quickly. Consult your doctor if any of the side effects persist or if your condition does not improve.

Before using it, inform your doctor if you have any previous history of allergy to it or any other medicine. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using it. Your doctor may monitor your blood cell counts during treatment.
