Advantan Fatty Ointment 0.1% is a topical medication for skin inflammation and allergic reactions. It contains the active ingredient methylprednisolone acetate, which belongs to a class of drugs known as corticosteroids. Corticosteroids have anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive properties, which make them effective in managing various skin conditions.

The ointment is formulated to reduce the symptoms associated with inflamed and irritated skin, such as redness (erythema), swelling (edema), and the discharge of fluids from the affected skin. It also relieves uncomfortable sensations like itching, burning, or pain often accompanying these skin issues.

The active ingredient, methylprednisolone acetate, works by suppressing the inflammatory response of the skin cells, thereby helping to alleviate the signs and symptoms of conditions like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and other allergic reactions.

  • Advantan Fatty Ointment should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin as directed by your healthcare provider. It is for external use only and should not be ingested or applied to mucous membranes.
  • Before applying the ointment, ensure the affected skin area is clean and dry.
  •  Apply a thin layer of the ointment to the affected area and gently rub it in. It's generally recommended to apply it once daily, but the frequency and duration of use may vary based on the severity of the condition and the doctor's instructions.

  • Skin Irritation: Some people may experience increased irritation, redness, or itching at the application site. This can be more common when the medication starts and may decrease as your skin adjusts.
  • Thinning of the Skin: Prolonged or excessive use of topical corticosteroids can cause skin thinning, making it more fragile and prone to tearing. This is more likely to occur with stronger corticosteroid preparations or if the medication is used for extended periods.
  • Skin Discoloration: Topical corticosteroids can sometimes cause changes in skin pigmentation, leading to areas of lightening or darkening of the skin.
  • Stretch Marks: Prolonged use of corticosteroids, especially on thin skin areas, can contribute to developing stretch marks.
  • Acne or Rosacea Flare-Up: In some cases, corticosteroid creams can exacerbate acne or rosacea symptoms.
