What is Protopic Ointment?

Protopic Ointment is used on the skin to treat moderate to severe atopic dermatitis (itching, redness, and inflammation) in patients who have received other medicines that have not worked well. It helps to suppress these symptoms, which are reactions caused by the body's immune system. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

Use Protopic Ointment exactly as directed by your doctor. This medicine is for use on the skin only. Please do not get it in your eyes, nose, or mouth. Do not use on skin areas that have cuts or scrapes. If it does get on these areas, rinse it off right away. To use:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water before and after using this medicine. If treating a rash on your hands, do not wash your hands after using the medicine.
  • Dry the skin completely before applying the ointment.
  • Apply a thin layer of ointment and rub it well to cover the affected areas.
  • Do not cover the treated skin with occlusive dressings, bandages, or wraps.
  • Do not bathe, shower, or swim right after applying for this medicine. 
  • If your doctor recommends a moisturizer, apply it after applying for this medicine.
  • Do not use cosmetics or other skin care products on the treated skin areas.
