WHAT IS PIMECROLIMUS ?
Pimecrolimus belongs to a class of drugs called as immunosupressants. It prevents specific cells of immune system (T cells) from aggravating the symptoms of eczema such as redness and itching. Pimecrolimus is an immunosuppressant. It works by decreasing your body's immune system to help slow down the growth of atopic dermatitis (eczema) on your skin.
Pimecrolimus topical (for the skin) is used to treat severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) when other medications have not worked well. Pimecrolimus is used topically for the treatment of mild or moderate atopic dermatitis (eczema) of the skin in patients aged 2 years and above, especially when topical corticosteroids cannot be used.
