Slvrgen Cream

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Slvrgen Cream is a combination medicine used in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. It helps in fast healing of ulcers (sores) of the leg, ankle, or foot in diabetic patients. This medicine accelerates healing and formation of healthy skin, thus providing relief in the skin infection.

Slvrgen Cream is meant for external use only. You should use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. The affected area should be clean and dry before application of this medicine. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. This medicine should be used regularly to get the most benefit from it.

If your condition does not improve or gets worse at any time, let your doctor know. You can help this medication work better by keeping the affected areas clean, making sure they are dry and washing your hands before and after treating the infection. It is advised to use proper footwear to increase the effectiveness of the medicine.

Some common side effects include skin irritation, rash, and pain at the site of application. If the side effects bother you or do not go away, let your doctor know. Some people have a severe allergic reaction which needs urgent medical attention. Signs of this include rash, swelling of the lips, throat or face, swallowing or breathing problems, dizziness and nausea. Get emergency help if this happens.

It is not likely that other medicines you take by mouth or injection will affect the way it works but talk to your doctor before using it if you have used a similar medicine before and had an allergic reaction. This medicine should only be used if it is clearly needed during pregnancy.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Skin irritation and Rash
    There are many treatments for a wide range of skin problems. Avoid hot showers or baths because hot water can irritate the skin. Make sure to pat dry your skin after a bath or shower. Do not rub or scratch the affected area. Leave the skin exposed to the air as much as possible. Do not use perfumed soaps or deodorants. Water containing chlorine can make most skin problems worse, so avoid swimming. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke and caffeine as it may also make itching worse. Avoid excessive sun exposure. Always use sunscreen and protective clothing when outdoors. Moisturizers can be used regularly to soothe and hydrate the affected area. If it does not get better within a week, speak to a pharmacist or doctor.
  • Coping with Pain
    Some people use herbal remedies, acupuncture and psychological therapies to manage pain. Using hot and cold compress can also help reduce the pain temporarily. Ask your doctor about suitable painkillers if it bothers you or does not go away.

How Slvrgen Cream works

Slvrgen Cream is a combination of three medicines: Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor, Chlorhexidine Gluconate and Silver Sulfadiazine which treat diabetic foot ulcer. Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor works by releasing a growth factor that causes skin regeneration in diabetic foot ulcer. Chlorhexidine Gluconate is an antiseptic and disinfectant which effectively cleans out the ulcer surface to prevent infection. Silver Sulfadiazine is an antibiotic. It stops bacteria from producing folic acid, a vitamin required for bacterial multiplication.
