Wound healing should come naturally, but sometimes due to complications, poor circulation or infection, the healing process can be slow or difficult which can result in wounds that are hard to heal. Various active pharmaceutical ingredients are prescribed by physicians for the treatment of wounds in compounded medications.
Premier Pharmacy has received numerous requests from prescribers for topical skin medications containing anti-infective medications (typically antibacterial or antifungal).
Patients who might benefit from the topical delivery of such medications could include patients who:
- Are using antibiotics, antifungals, or other medications, and have not achieved eradication of an existing skin infection,
- Treatment has failed using one or more commercially available skin delivered medications, or
- Need a topical medication to be delivered concomitantly with oral or IV administered medications to treat the infection.
