Usage and Application

A small quantity of the ointment should be applied with finger in the painful pruritic area in the morning and evening and after each stool. For deep application, nozzle should be attached to the tube and inserted to full extent and the tube should be squeezed gently from the lower end while withdrawing.

Side Effects and Warnings

Side effects which have been reported for individual constituents may occur and appropriate precaution should be taken when using Anustat

Like most of the steroids under certain circumstances, hydrocortisone may be absorbed in sufficient amount to produce systemic effects. In particular, long term use should be avoided. Adrenal suppression may occur even without occlusion. When used for prolonged period striae may occur.

Skin sensitization may occur due to Neomycin from wound or in inflammed skin due to absorption of antibiotic and this may affect the hearing irreversibly. Hence Anustat should not be given to extensively damaged skin.

Contraindication

Sensitivity to any one of the constituents of Anustat.

Pregnancy

Topical steroid should not be used extensively in pregnancy
