What is best for Skin infection – Ointment, Creams or Oral medication?

Jul 6th 2015 at 10:49 PM

Microbial Skin infections are categorized under four most common categories:

  • Bacterial infection - Many species of bacteria, such as , Acinetobacter, Staphylococcus , Corynebacterium and Brevibacterium are found on the outer layer of skin but cause no harm. However, some can invade even the healthy skin, which may result in skin infection.
  • Fungal infection – In normal circumstances, our skin can host some fungus, but issue is when they begin to multiply thus creating an overgrowth. Fungal infection can happen anywhere in the body, but most prone areas are the skin areas that touch/rub each other, like areas between toes and fingers.
  • Protozoan infection - Protozoan infections are transmitted by arthropods, like, sand-flies or bugs. Animals also act as vectors. Protozoan infections cause mucous membrane and skin disease.

There are various topical products available at the medical stores which acts as anti-infective agents and kills microbes. These products are available as ointment or creams. Since ointments have occlusive effects, so most commonly used for infections with associated dryness but cannot be used for areas with oozing lesions.

Creams are semisolid (oil-in-water) preparations which can be easily washed off with water as they are not as messy and occlusive as ointments. This is the reason why Bionova has come up with Nollderm Cream for the treatment of skin infection caused by bacteria, fungus or protozoa. Bionova has preferred Cream form over ointment, and it is widely being referred by skin specialists for treating inflamed skin and itching due to microbial infections.

Above all, the application of topical products like Nollderm cream, in treatment of skin infections is better than consuming oral medicines, as it eliminates the chances of systemic drug adverse effects, like diarrhea. When an oral medication is used to treat skin infections, it is transported through the bloodstream, impacting the entire body along with the area in infection. However, in case of topical skin infection management, the treatment remains localized to the affected area. Additionally, the time taken for recovery in case of oral medication is greater than topical treatment. The ingredients of a topical medicine do not have to travel through bloodstream and digestive system to reach the affected area, but are introduced directly to the affected area, thus giving instant relief from inflammation and itching.

Bionova manufactures all its products considering such minutest details. Thus it has preferred Cream over Oral medication or Ointment for skin infection treatement . This consumer centric approach of Bionova makes it a leading manufacturer and exporter of Nutraceutical and Biological products globally.
